Govt. Healthcare Rules: VA Hospital Possibly Infects 1800 with HIV.
It appears that a Missouri Veterans Administration Hospital may have inadvertently exposed 1800 veterans to HIV and Hepatitis.
John Cochran VA Medical Center in St. Louis has recently mailed letters to 1,812 veterans telling them they could contract hepatitis B, hepatitis C and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) after visiting the medical center for dental work, said Rep. Russ Carnahan.
This post isn’t about the abhorrent manner in which we treat our veterans; that’s a separate post for another day. This is about providing a snapshot of the inevitable result of Obamacare. Government price-fixing and healthcare rationing, both of which are either contained in, or are the logical result of, the recently-passed healthcare law, will destroy the private healthcare industry. Eventually, the government will be providing healthcare to everyone, just like it does to veterans.
Simply put, if the law isn’t repealed, or at least significantly amended, we should all be prepared for substandard healthcare.
