Heath care x (stupidity + litigiousness) = ...

So this is what it has come down to.

People now have to call an ambulance for a ten yard (that's thirty feet, mind you) transport to the hospital, wait for it to arrive while the victim is in dire need of morphine, all while hospital personnel do absolutely nothing - not even make the phone call for the ambulance. And then the staff are congratulated for "following policy."

This is right out of Mike Judge's dystopic comedy Idiocracy - only 500 years too soon and in England instead of America.

Someone had better put "common sense" on the endangered species list.
