    How does one properly categorize a death when the deceased perished in the corridor of a hospital whilst waiting for any sort of triage, let alone treatment?

    Is it an accident?

    Is it a suicide for having gone to the particular hospital/government health facility?

    That's a question lots of British ordinary people are asking themselves:

    NHS patients dying in hospital corridors, A&E doctors tell Theresa May

    And a question for which Americans might have to consider if the left gets "one payer".....

    Ponder THAT if your party allows "pondering" by peons.

    single payer would make everything so much more efficient and less costly...

    currently SO much money is wasted on administrative tasks, where money could be better spent serving the medical needs of the patient.

    Liberals don't give a shit about people, because liberals hate their very existence, so "at this point what difference does it make" that people are dying waiting to be seen in a hospital. There is no sanctity of life, for the most innocent victims are butchered and their parts sold for profit, so why should they feel any different for someone who took a risk by entering the British Hospital.

    "NHS so 'chronically underfunded' and dangerously short-staffed...........

    staff were so busy due to the sheer number of people needing care."

    In the US we call them a Sentinel Event. They are investigated objectively and reviewed by JACHO, the governing body. Sentinel Events can be accidental but can also be the result of negligence.

    Are you ACTUALLY trying to get us to believe that government control will make it more efficient? Not even a lefty is dumb enough to believe that.
