Death By Dehydration At The Hands of Hospital Staff

The Blissful State™ of Heath Care in the UK. Police probe death of hospital patient who begged for water - Telegraph

Take a minute to think about that headline. He begged for water. He died from dehydration. He was in the hospital.

Instead of giving him water (or the medicine he required) they called security and restrained him.

The hospital is "sorry" and have implemented "procedures" to ensure this doesn't happen again.

Personally I think that if you took the nurses on staff at the time at threw them in prison for 20 years for negligent manslaughter, that would go pretty far to ensure this never happened again.

I can hardly wait until we have socialized medicine like they do in the UK!
