I had to explain to someone I work with that if we were running a pregnancy test, the patient was a female. They tried to argue with me that because the paperwork didn't list gender we didn't know.

"If we are running a pregnancy test they are a woman. Males lack critical components required for pregnancy, I don't care how many loving tumblr accounts say otherwise."

This is an actual statement I had to make to an actual adult in the medical field. They also did not know what Tumblr was. I also had to explain to more than three people why I call the autistic savant Rain Man. Then explain to them what a savant is.

On the serious side, I don't really have any ill effects that are more severe than all the other crazy poo poo that has happened to me. My heart was more damaged from defibs trying to revive me 3 or 4 times. My brain was more hosed up by all the concussions I have suffered. Drowning in a half frozen lake probably didn't do positive things for my health either. But outside of being a bit more careful when thunderstorms start rolling in, I'm not really bothered by it.

I'm really amazed at how much press this VA stuff is getting from traditionally administration-friendly sources, considering how the whole thing is basically a ringing condemnation of government-run health care. Even if Shinseki goes, the problems predate him by a good amount, and there's no indication chair-swapping even at the top is going to do squat.

Clearly the answer is to sign everybody up for that level of care, that way no one will have unrealistic expectations!

Whenever GBS (before the massive and long overdue house cleaning) brought up universal health care/government run health care/socialized medicine, I told them it was a terrible idea and would never work.

Shouted down every fuckin time.

Because working in the medical industry doesn't allow me to get a glimpse into how its run. And I am only one person so just because I have read about it/seen it/experienced it doesn't mean its a real problem. And its great health care for every one else but me... And this kind of poo poo doesn't happen. And the same assholes who can't pave loving roads right or balance a budget, or run a covert espionage program with out getting caught are more than capable of setting up a government controlled health care program. And The Affordable Care Act has gone so well...

TLDR, GBS and the D&D fucks that used to run essentially every carebear Communism thread in it are retarded.

To truly fix it you have to start with banning lobby groups and campaign donations connected to medical companies. Then you have to strictly regulate both medical care costs and insurance.

The VA policy of waiting for an ambulance to take a guy two doors down is pretty much standard across the whole healthcare industry. Generally it leads to the best outcome because the last thing that I want is a clerk with zero medical training making medical decisions. That said, a 30 minute response time on a "person down, unresponsive" call is really dogshit, and I have no idea what the facility is like, but I'm surprised that they couldn't scrounge up a nurse and a wheelchair sometime within that half-hour.
