I live in the Midwest (meth capital, as you probably all know) and my local newspaper recently did a big story about the burn unit in that city. The story said that some hospitals have had to close their burn units because the entire hospital was in danger of financial collapse just from all the uninsured people who blew themselves up in meth lab explosions. And this unit assumes that all patients are from a meth lab unless they can prove otherwise (paramedics brought them in from a job site, that kind of thing). Among other things, they always get an eye wash because they've seen a few cases of people who weren't that badly burned but ended up blind, and didn't have to be that way.
NatGeo has a show about meth that airs periodically, and they interviewed the director of the burn unit at Vanderbilt University Hospital in Tennessee. He said that this hospital provides $300 million in charity care every year just to their meth lab explosion patients.
There was an implication between the lines of both stories that if it was up to them, meth lab explosion people would get comfort care and nothing else, and whether people like this should even get aggressive treatment, whether they are insured or not, is a medical ethicist's nightmare.
I've read "Methland", and I recognized enough factual errors in the book to make the entire thing suspect.
