the single patient, the self-serving hospital

Dr Crippen works under the National Health Service (we mentioned him earlier, The Crippen Diaries). What his patient writes about doesn’t sound restricted to the UK.

In the US, health care is rationed by money. But even with personal financial resources, patients need to have someone as advocate–

  • to keep asking questions until answers are understood by all and
  • to make sure that what is happening (or not happening) is supposed to.
  • We all really need a decent health system.
