Bureaucrats in Charge of Health Care

The wondrous state of health care in the UK. Nurses became 'immune to the sound of pain' - Telegraph
An independent inquiry into Stafford Hospital – where patients were starved, dehydrated, left in agony, and told to lie in their own faeces – has heard how:

* The hospital's emergency assessment unit was so unsafe that staff branded it "Beirut";
So when told of all the problems in a report, what did the bureaucrats in charge do? Did they roll up their sleeves to fix the problems?
When hospital bosses were given notice of a damning inspection report, published last year, they responded by hiring a public relations team and promised to "get MPs on side"
s"The only constant in the universe is the bureaucratic mentality."
