29th May 2010

“When people go to the doctor, they should be able to expect that the care they receive meets prevailing medical standards. We reviewed policies at hospital systems representing more than 650 facilities across the U.S. and have documented the conditions and circumstances where that is not happening. We found a disturbing number of case studies where patients ended up far worse off either because their healthcare providers refused care or because their hospitals prohibited the care they needed for ideological or religious reasons.”

    No such hospital exists that prohibit care due to idiological or religious reasons. That sort of accusations is pure lie or made up stories..

    Dude, like I asked you on yesterday’s post: “What kind of crop are you smoking or snorting? I guess in the land of make believe all things are possible.” And once more you are out spouting bull.

    The Attorney is stating fact based on real research, hard evidence and empirical facts and not some old made up stories without merit.

    sol:

    No such hospital exists

    The problem in the US is primarily related to Catholic hospitals. For example:

    If they had followed church policy they would have let the Mother and foetus die. What would your Imams have done?

    Interesting and rather scary research. Thankfully, I don’t live in ‘the land of the free’, I live in Ireland where we have universal healthcare and my thoughts will not endanger my own or any one else’s life.. The Catholic Church has made abortion illegal here in most circumstances, but we are fairly close to England where the laws are much more liberal.
    I would be interested to learn if you think that President Obama’s healthcare reforms will improve the situation or is Christian fundamentalism so deeply ingrained in American society that human life is not sacrosanct any more but depends on the whim of some self styled ‘church leader’?

    The Atheists minds are corrupted. Indeed they are the condemn lots.Ranting almost anything as if they run or control the happening of things. In fact in the beginning(infant or have’nt existed) they knew NOTING!

    The world today just as in the past is full of problems.We can only take of the things that we ourselves can change.If I see something I can do to better the world for me or my fellow man then I do it. I do it out of love for my fellow man.I will not complain about. If there is something going on in my world that I can’t do anything about it, I don’t go looking for someone to blame it on or beat my brain trying to change the the things I can’t. Life is too wonderful to be griping over happenings we have no control over.

    For me I’am just trying to put things right. Right in the eyes of god & wise ways. The rest I’ll leave it to god to decide, not just shut up and let things becomes worst.

  9. The Heretic Says:

    My thought is simple, don’t go to a religious hospital if you are dubious of the care to be received. Healthcare is like any other commodity, you must research to find the best you can afford within the budget you have to spend. You must vet the people who are to treat you. Then these problems would not occur.

    As for Obama’s healthcare plan. What a disgrace. This plan will ration care, run good people out of the medical field, and reduce the innovation of medical technologies. Oh, and the price for it will go up. What a shame. The US’s best hope is that the law gets overturned as unconstitutional.

    Sol, shut up and you may get more done, you’re preaching to the unconcerned.Words typed are same as talk.Talk is cheap. Be quite and do some good and don’t brag about it.Live and let live.No human is perfect,and no one person has all the answers.
