POOR STUPID MHz!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!
Still trying to distract us with idiot and irrelevant comments!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Here is an article illustrating the cost and consequences of LIE-beral style RATIONED HEALTH CARE- of the type Cdn LIE-berals are forcing on us! With some comments of my own in brackets):
Girl died after GP turned her away for being late
Sky News. Feb 27. 2018
A coroner has ruled it was unacceptable that a five-year-old girl died after she was turned away from an emergency doctors for being minutes late.
(Britain has had its National Health service much longer than we have had OHIP! And Ontari-owe is the most indebted sub national entity on the planet thanks to Wynne-bag LIE-berals- meaning we are on exactly the same fiscal course as Britain!)
Ellie-May Clark had been booked for an emergency appointment because she was having breathing difficulties but arrived five minutes late, an inquest heard.
Newport Coroner's Court heard her mother, who had an eight-week-old baby and did not have a car, was given just 25 minutes to get Ellie-May to the Grange Clinic in Newport, South Wales, but got stuck in a queue at the surgery.
The inquest was told that the doctor refused to see patients who were more than 10 minutes late.
Doctors at the surgery had been warned by a consultant that the girl was at risk of a "severe/life-threatening" asthma episode.
But the youngster was turned away and went home to bed, where she collapsed about five hours later and died in hospital.
Her death - on 26 January 2015 - was caused by bronchial asthma.
(This is not the first child to die of health rationing- we have the deaths of a couple of Cdn kids on RECENT record as well- courtesy of over full hospitals in New Brunswick- who sent the kids home rather than admit them- sadly the kids never made it back to hospital!)
Wendy James, senior coroner for Gwent, said it was "not acceptable" that Ellie-May had been turned away without any assessment or advice on what to do if her condition worsened.
(LIE-berals like to tell us that driving is a privilege- but in cases like this it looks more like NECESSITY! The sad reality is that the kid probably could NOT have been helped at the clinic as she was to far gone and only a hospital could offer REAL aid at that point!)
(So why didnt Mom take the kid to a hospital? Was it too far to travel on overloaded public transit with an 18 month baby and a semi conscious, DYING older kid?)
(Britian has two tier medicine of the sort Cdn Hogs want installed here- if Mom had phoned for an ambulance- would she have been charged a hefty union Hog rate that she could not afford?)
(We know that an Ontari-owe man got to the front entrance of a hospital and collapsed there- unable to go farther- emergency room staff were told of the man and they had only to step outside the building to get him on a stretcher- and yet the old guy on a pension was BILLED FOR AN AMBULANCE! )
(Such is LIE-beral lust for gravy that hospital bean counters responded to the critics by whining that there is always a charge for an ambulance for any patient unable to get into hospital on their own! EVEN IF NO AMBULANCE IS CALLED!)
Recording a narrative verdict, she said: "From the evidence before me, it is not possible for me to determine with certainty whether an earlier intervention would have altered the outcome for Ellie, but nonetheless Ellie should have been seen by a GP that day and she was let down by the failures in the system."
The court heard Ellie-May's school had phoned her mother, Shanice Clark, to tell her she was not well and recommended she see a doctor.
Miss Clark phoned the Grange Clinic at 3.30pm reporting that her daughter was wheezing and could not walk but the surgery did not phone back until 4.35pm, when she was offered a 5pm appointment.
Ellie-May and her mother arrived at 5.05pm and then had to wait for a receptionist to finish a phone call and deal with a patient in front of them in the queue.
They spoke to receptionist Ann Jones between 5.10pm and 5.18pm.
Mrs Jones phoned Dr Joanne Rowe to tell her Ellie-May had arrived but "Dr Rowe replied that she wouldn't see Ellie as she was late and she would need to come back the following day," the coroner said.
Neither the receptionist nor Dr Rowe asked why Ellie-May was late or the reason for her emergency appointment.
The doctor did not open Ellie-May's medical file or ask if a colleague could see her.
Miss Clark said Ellie-May was upset after leaving the surgery, asking her mother: "Why won't the doctor see me?"
She told the inquest she thought at the time her daughter did not need to go to hospital, adding: "Obviously now I would do things differently."
Ellie-May went to bed at about 8pm and Miss Clark checked on her daughter every 10-15 minutes.
At 10.30pm, after hearing her coughing, she checked again and saw that Ellie-May's face and hands had turned blue.
The girl was taken to the Royal Gwent Hospital, where she was pronounced dead a short time later.
The coroner said she would write to the surgery, the Aneurin Bevan health board, the health inspectorate of Wales, the chief coroner and Miss Clark to try to prevent future deaths.
(There is a lesson here for parents- beyond the obvious one about the danger of health rationing that is running medical people off their feet- and that is: when in ANY DOUBT- run for a hospital! Breathing difficulties can turn SWIFTLY towards LIFE THREATENING!)
(WE know LIE-berals WHINE about the frivolous use of hospital emergency services but its better to be a LIVE NUISANCE than be overlooked and dead!)
A statement from Dr Rowe was read at the inquest, saying: "Dr Rowe knows that nothing can be said to Ellie-May's family to make a difference but she would like to say how truly sorry she is."
(I am sure that statement is a great comfort to the grieving mother- and to anybody else who fears being terminally neglected by LIE-berals who love telling us how caring and compassionate they are- while robbing us blind!!!!!!)
