Not a single official has been disciplined over the worst-ever NHS hospital scandal, it emerged last night.
Up to 1,200 people lost their lives needlessly because Mid-Staffordshire NHS Trust put government targets and cost-cutting ahead of patient care.
But none of the doctors, nurses and managers who failed them has suffered any formal sanction.
The inquiry found that:
• Patients were left unwashed in their own filth for up to a month as nurses ignored their requests to use the toilet or change their sheets;
• Four members of one family. including a new-born baby girl. died within 18 months after of blunders at the hospital;
• Medics discharged patients hastily out of fear they risked being sacked for delaying;
• Wards were left filthy with blood, discarded needles and used dressings while bullying managers made whistleblowers too frightened to come forward.
So, if or when ObamaCare passes, is this what we are to expect here? Just remember that ObamaCare is the Cloward-Piven Plan that will lead us to the exploitable crisis that the government needs to justify taking over the health care system. Just as a reminder of this intention…
Since the public option was soundly rejected by the people, they have to add an additional step to get the public option. The current plan is just that. If they can cripple the insurance industry with this bill, they can justify the public option. The public option will then work towards it’s stated purpose, and the government can begin the gradual (or not) takeover of all health care.
