    Default Hey, Check Out Australia's Universal Healthcare. Sign Me Up!

    http://www.abc.net.au/news/stories/2...12/2087990.htm

    Ms Meagher has told the inquiry the hospital was recently given a top-to-toe clean after nursing staff raised concerns about the state of its cleanliness in late September.

    But Nationals MP Jenny Gardiner says Dr Sleye Hughes's submission suggests the hospital has been dirty for some time.

    "He refers to the killing of live cockroaches on operating theatre tables during operations," she said. "That is not acceptable is it?"

    lol... one of the problems we DO have here is the healthcare system is handled by both state and federal governments. Makes it easy for one to pass the buck to the other.

    And of course at the moment there is an election on, so all this stuff gets put under the microscope. All I can really say is my experiences with the public health system have been fine, although obviously I wouldnt know about any cockroaches being squished while I was under the knife.. lol

    Just this weekend my lil 2 year old Niece fell sick. Visits her GP, GP recommends a hospital visit, so she rocks up, kid gets attention quickly, one peadiatrician (sp) cant work it out, gets a second, they do all the tests, work out whats going on, give her what she needs to fix her, 2 night stay in hospital, Kids mother gets to stay in the room with her, discharged, all is sweet. Most of the cost of this is picked up by the system. Worked fine.

    I dunno, I can't really see this as being a bad thing. But if you don't like it, of course you always have the choice to pick up private health insurance here and go that route.

    Possibly. We call them 'elections' here. Craziness reigns, at least till the 24th November, then the cockroach stories will probably subside.

    No worries, people buy the farm in our over-crowded waiting rooms quite often. The problem is that this would only get WORSE if we went to government run healthcare. The same people who put together the new Airport Security system would now be asking us to turn our heads and cough.
