Adventures in Socialized Medicine: Botched Surgery by the Light of an iPhone

Venezuela isn’t the only place where socialism has taken a toll on the quality of healthcare. Take Britain, for example:

Georgia Henderson [age 13] was left to wait for six hours in a waiting room with blood pouring from a lesion on her lip and was only handed gauze pads to stem the flow.

When a doctor finally arrived to see her he took her into a small room off the waiting room and told her he was going to perform an excision surgery to remove the lump.

However Georgia and her mother Kathryn were horrified when the consultant asked a colleague to shine the torch from his iPhone onto her lip so he could see clearly to perform the procedure.

Georgia’s lip was cut, then stitched and she was allowed to leave Newcastle’s Royal Victoria Infirmary, but when she arrived back home she saw the lump had not been successfully removed.

She might try going abroad to some place where bloated, bungling government has not taken over the healthcare industry, while such places still exist.

Your daughter’s mouth on government-run healthcare.

On a tip from Lyle.
