ObamaCare: Confusing an appendix for an ovary

If you want to know the future of medicine in America, check out this example of what happens when hospitals really don’t have to care.

If gay “marriage” can redefine marriage, then why can’t your ovaries be an appendix! That confusion is what happened in England, one of the healthcare Utopias that the Left so readily touts:

In October 2011, a 32-year-old woman underwent an operation at Queen’s Hospital outside of London; Maria De Jesus was suffering from appendicitis and needed to have her appendix removed. Instead, her right ovary was taken out, and De Jesus, who was 21 weeks pregnant with her fourth child at the time, ended up dying roughly three weeks later.

Sounds like one of those “doctors” was learning on the job? It was!

During the Oct. 23 surgery, De Jesus began to bleed “quite heavily. … In the midst of this, Mr. Al-Abed removed what he clearly believed to be the appendix. He thought he found it, removed it, and gave to a nurse what later turned out to be Patient A’s ovary,” the tribunal heard. Coker, who was eating lunch at the time, was never summoned, nor was he aware the surgery was taking place. The mistake wasn’t uncovered until much later.

Perhaps we will begin showcasing all the healthcare horror stories in Europe, so people can begin to understand how well socialized medicine works, “for realz.”
