Unfair question? Perhaps, but read this article before you decide:
Is health care helping this elderly woman, or putting tremendous burdens of her budget, time, and energy to extract wealth from her?
I don’t speak to individuals’ motives here. I speak to the effect they have on her life, taken as a group. She faithfully puts in lots of painful stairs, lots of money, lots of time isolated out in the cold, to have her most pressing and obvious needs completely ignored, don’t you think?
I want to know, folks.
How does this story – typical of our chaotic and fee-driven health care – how does it strike you?
How does it make you feel?
Thanks to Nancy Wilson who sent this article my way on Nurseup.com
