Welcome to the 3rd World

And it’s getting worse

The United States is the most dangerous place to give birth in the devoted world.

It appears that many hospitals skip basic procedures.

My guess as to the reqson, “Because ……… Profit.”

It’s a hell of a way to run a railroad:

Every year, thousands of women suffer life-altering injuries or die during childbirth because hospitals and medical workers skip safety practices known to head off disaster, a USA TODAY investigation has found.

Doctors and nurses should be weighing bloody pads to track blood loss so they recognize the danger sooner. They should be giving medication within an hour of spotting dangerously high blood pressure to fend off strokes.

These are not complicated procedures requiring expensive technology. They are among basic tasks that experts have recommended for years because they can save mothers’ lives.

Yet hospitals, doctors and nurses across the country continue to ignore them, USA TODAY found.

As a result, women are left to bleed until their organs shut down. Their high blood pressure goes untreated until they suffer strokes. They die of preventable blood clots and untreated infections. Survivors can be left paralyzed or unable to have more children.

Silly rabbit, decent health care is for socialists.

Except for Canada, everyone else,s rates are falling, and Canada under Harper was big into market driven solutions.

Correlation is not causation, but it is a reason for further investigation.
