I just saw Michael Moore's movie, "Sicko" and it discusses health care in these countries. I would like to know, from nurses in these countries if he is accurate in his portrayal of what it is like in your countries.Specifically, do nurses work a 35 hour week? How many other job classifications do?Do you get unlimited paid sick time? Do employers keep their businesses running when people are out sick? How?Do you get a year off after childbirth? Does a nanny come to help a new mom twice each week for 4 hours per day?Do you really get a minimum of 5 weeks' vacation? How about holidays?How do people view nurses? Do doctors respect you? Does the public look up to you, trust you, think highly of you?In America, we get about 12 weeks off after childbirth, we work a minimum of 40 hours, we get maybe 12 sick days per year, there is no nanny unless we pay for it. Plus, we do not get free health care. We pay lots and lots of money for insurance and more for medication, plus we have to help pay the doctor, in the form of co-pays and deductibles. We get maybe 2 or 3 weeks of vacation, unless you are a doctor and then you get a month, or a long-term employee and then you get a couple of weeks more (after 10 years, I think, generally).So, what I want to know is where should I move to - Canada, England, or France? I'm getting my passport ready. Thanks for any insight on what it is like to be a nurse and/or citizen in your country?Are there other countries that have a national health service, free health care for everyone? Germany, Spain, etc. I'm interested in any country's way of providing health care for its populace.
