    Brazilian health care rating takes a hit

    This poor guy dies at the age of 42. The Brazilian health care system has obviously neglected its duty to watch over runaway cows that can fall through the roof of your home. Not only that they let him wait for medical attention in the emergency room as he died from internal bleeding.

    Yes, let's measure the quality of health care by the collective age expectancy as opposed to what happens when you go to the freaking hospital!

    Did you have a point?

     

     

     



    Cows do not belong of the roof.  there should be a law.

     

    Of course, like every liberal law, you can pay a fine and still keep your cow on a roof.

    That way, liberals can claim that government is not coercingyou to get your cows off the roof.

    Heh, heh, heh... gotta laugh at the wingnuts 'empirical' evidence.

    One guy, one country, one time and they try to use it as some kind of rebuttal to actual studies and data. Ignorance sure does twist the neo-con mind.

     

    Hey, how about this?

    Study Finds Nearly 200,000 Deaths Annually from Hospital Errors

    An average of 195,000 Americans died annually in 2000, 2001 and 2002 because of potentially preventable, in-hospital medical errors, according to a study of 37 million patient records conducted by HealthGrades, a healthcare quality company.

    The "HealthGrades Patient Safety in American Hospitals" looked at the mortality and economic impact of medical errors and injuries that occurred during Medicare hospital admissions nationwide from 2000 to 2002.

    I guess the other 36,805,000 made it out OK. Hospitals are a place you can get sick for sure. At least you are dealing with some of the right data to measure the effectiveness of a health care system.

    By the way, I am not saying that our health care system is wonderful or the best in the world. I don't know how good it is. I am just saying that using life expectancy statistics as a measure of the health care system is bogus. It's propaganda.
