I read it wrong.
25% of nurses, likely from ALL hospitals. My bad.
It's a crap shoot, for sure.
Budget cutbacks, shortages of both doctors and nurses, and a more recent problem, plaguing all of North America, is the superbugs that take an
especially lengthy cleaning routine that no one has the time for.
I also saw a documentary on the US system, and there's big problems there too. Operations and prescriptions for profit, lead to many unnecessary
operations and over medicating. Doctors don't get paid to recommend a healthy lifestyle, so many don't. They get paid better for unhealthy patients.
It would be nice if both systems were better, they've had enough time to figure it out.
They're big on prevention up here, tell us to stock up on vitamin D every flu season, exercise, and make sure we know the latest "superfoods".
I wish those healthy foods were cheaper.
It's important to stay out of hospitals everywhere, if possible. Hospitals can make you very sick.
Even though we don't pay out of pocket (yes, system is from taxes), I don't go to the doctor much other than annual check up. You're never sick or
dying, until a doctor tells you that you are (if you feel healthy)....
