11-year-old Swedish girl denied ambulance
The Local ^ | 6/24/11 | Staff

After sustaining an open chest wound of 10cm long while trimming her horse’s mane, Sweden’s emergency response services refused to send an ambulance, suggesting the 11-year-old girl take aspirin instead. (Snip) The resulting gash to her ribs measured 10cm long, and according to the girl’s mother, was substantially open, reported Sweden’s national newspaper Svenska Dagbladet (SvD). The mother phoned SOS Alarm, the government-backed primary emergency response service, and described the child as shaking because she was in so much pain. She requested an ambulance because she did not have immediate access to a car. The responding nurse refused the dispatch.

Under a private system you would have the recourse of taking legal action against the nurse that declined treatment. Under a nationalized system the nurse is a government employee engaged in performing a government function so suing them for negligence would be suing the government for negligence and therefore would not be allowed. Just something to think about.

What type of nutcase tells a person with a bleeding wound to take a blood thinner?

I’m sure if she had said she was Muslim they would have dispatched one in the blink of an eye.

This makes total sense. Clearly, medical care has to be withheld from elderly, as the cost-benefit argues that money better spent on younger patients. BUT, as according to the wise teachings of Imam Berman, society has NOT YET invested much resources into this 11 year old. After weighing the costs of Junior high, High school, college versus 10 cm open wound treatment, its just better for society that she be given blood thinners (quickens the result).

Absolutely, last time I got a 2 inch wound I bled like a stuck pig and spent a week in the hospital.

right

those that didn’t vote for der leader will find their phone services immediately disconnected in mid-call

i’m fairly certain if that was my daughter, the operator would be wondering how she got to the middle of nowhere... how she got the 10 cm gash in her chest... and where her cell phone was

The definition of insanity:

You turn your healthcare over the the very same people who run the IRS and the Motor Vehicle bureau.

(Actually the very first thing Obama and the democrat party did was to exempt themselves from the ObamaCare they impoped involutarily on the rest of us. The same principle applies in Sweden and worldwide to the ruling socialist d-bag regimes)

Just something to think about.

In the US you can still sue the perp if you can show that they acted outside the boundaries of their duties, and thus were not "engaged in a government function."

Alternately, if you can show that the "government function" was deficient, excessive, or not legal, you can fight unlimited numbers of government attorneys and appeals processes until, if you win, the government will be ordered by the court to... change their policies. And you're out your damages and costs.

This is what happens when you reverse the sovereignty relationship of the government and the people through corporate dominance. Hell, this is WHY people strive so hard to reverse it. Except that the US is the only place it's actually reversed, which is why we have so many mealy-mouthed, lying liar legal experts here. In other places, such as Sweden, they don't have to lie - the people are the open property of the government, no matter what they're called.

Instead she advised the mother to clean the wound, apply pressure and give her daughter aspirin which would give them eight hours to get to the nearest hospital, according to SvD.

Aspirin! That's the ticket! One should always give blood thinners to profusely bleeding indivduals!

It's a wonder the "nurse" didn't suggest sprinkling the wound with salt & powdered sassafras bark, then binding it with fresh spider webbing...while chanting a few runes for good measure.

When the government controls such things as healthcare, expect your continued existance to depend on your political value.
