CrowGoat: In the story, she states that she received morphine *before* the physician did an exam. Ain't gonna happen.
KokuRyu: ...the noise about "dogfooding" is kind of hard to understand.
The United States comes in dead last in a new, international ranking of health care systems from a top health-care non-profit.
This doesn't mean that we're the worst in the world; there are plenty of less-developed countries that have worse systems than America's. But when the United States is compared against peer countries like France and Canada it does not come out well. It comes out the very worst.
A new Commonwealth Fund report looks at how the United States stacks up against other countries on things like access to doctors and quality of care. It pulls from three separate surveys conducted over the past three years: a 2011 survey of sicker patients, a 2012 survey of doctors and a 2013 survey of adults over 18. It also uses health outcome data from the OECD and World Health Organization. This means it captures the experience of the medical system from the people who use it a lot, those who use it a little and the doctors treating them.
