What "National Health Care" Really Means

Hospitals infested with rats

Here's out it's working out in the United Kingdom

From THE SUN August 6, 2008

FILTHY hospital wards are crawling with rats, cockroaches, flies and maggots, it has been revealed.
Shock new figures show there were 20,000 separate infestations in just over two years.

Virtually every NHS trust in the country has been hit by the stomach-churning crisis.

And experts fear the legions of pests help spread infections in our hospitals — which are already battling superbugs such as MRSA and Clostridium difficile (C-diff). Cases exposed in a bombshell dossier published today by the Conservatives include:

RATS in maternity units;

COCKROACHES found on sick kids’ wards and a urology unit;

MAGGOTS in patients’ slippers and mortuaries;

WARDS “over-run” by mice and ants.

The crisis is so bad that 70 per cent of trusts had to call in pest exterminators 50 OR MORE times between January 2006 and March 2008.

Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust alone recorded the most incidents.

Does the above give you reason to pause?
After all, the Brits have been at this national health care for 60 years now, you would think they'd have down to science by now.

Never-the-less; our friends on the left continue their chant Healthcare NOW!!

No sense in confusing them with facts, their feeble little minds are already made up.
