Somehow, I just get a vision of lying on the operating room table and wondering as the surgeon moves towards me if he sees me as a big dollar sign?
Tenet Healthcare made money (Jeb Bush works for them, now). HCA/Columbia Hospitals made money (Rick Scott helped HCA gain the mistrust of the DOJ as they were charged with fraud).
A patient now has to consider if he/she is "worthy" of the "fix"? Will the surgeon cut corners to make the surgery more profitable for the hospital?
We become more barbaric and inhumane as this century moves forward. Hope is gone!
