Heck, I saw something about India and how well they have placed the groundwork for affordable high-end procedure-based care. They have complete focus. If I can find some kind of link to the video, I'll post it. It might have been MSNBC or 20/20 or something similar.
Would that include the "high-end" hospital in Kolkata, India, where many, many patients were recently killed in a horrible fire?
The article I read said that the doctors were the first ones out of the building, leaving the bedbound patients.
I guess that is what a true, profit-motive person would do, right? There's no profit in providing a safe building, as long as people don't know about it, or in rescuing patients from a fire, right?
So just how do enforced regulations contribute to the bottom line?
I really think that when profit-taking and health care get together, a monster is created.
Tell me, how can sick people be profitable - no way for that to happen.
