Health care (medical ethics)

Published:

excerpt:
But gradually the medical profession has been forced to give up this approach for what I like to call a “veterinary ethic,” one that places the interests of the payer (or owner) ahead of the patient

You could be lowered to the status of cattle in their decision on your health care.

Hows that hope and change going lately liberals? Have you felt you achieved your goals?
Liberals voters have been taken down to the status of cattle now so an education is not needed as your needs are supplied thru free stuff. Just need to know how to grunt and pull the voting lever. They will assign you menial tasks from time to time to break your boredom. You are all under socialist rule now so no worries on your part are needed.
When you become ill they will have a doctor with veterinary ethics check you out to see if you are any value to society anymore.

They force us to take government healthcare.
And then they can tell us how we have to live, cuz afterall, they're providing our healthcare.
The ultimate vicious circle.
Some people think Bloomberg telling them that they can't eat salt in NYC is funny. That's nothing compared to what democrats in high places have planned for us.
Wait...

So if you must return to the hospital for the same or a related problem, the hospital and doctor will not be compensated for their work. Did I read that right?

The government will, by rule or regulation, tell the hospital and doctor what treatment they can provide their patient but if the treatment doesn't work, then the medical staff must do it again for free. Really!?

If this is allowed to stand, you can kiss the medical profession good-by. All that will be left will be Granny Clampett.
