Irony in LTC


The visitor says, "Soon America will be a socialist country with everyone holding their hand out expecting the government to pay for everything."

He is visiting a medicaid recipient who's stay in the facility is paid for by whom? You guessed it - the government.

At least I got a little, silent chuckle out of it (after I left the room.)

You really want to chuckle ---- just wait until you get the angry 'caid pt/family who'll tell you, "I pay your salary"!!!

That one really makes me laugh and then shake my head.

Maybe this is just a co-ink-o-dink, but I have observed that the biggest socialist-complaining malcontents I cared for happened to have FOX News on in their rooms 24/7.
