Never mind that the Surgical Center of Oklahoma has an infection rate of 1/20th that of a traditional hospital! That's right -- they harm and kill through negligence or just honest mistake 1/20th as many people. Why? Because they can't bill you for it as they gave you a fixed price up front, so they have every incentive to not do stupid things. The hospital down the street, on the other hand, bills you for the infection or screw-up they caused. Oh, if it kills you? Your estate gets billed. A couple hundred thousand people die every year in this country as a result of this crap, probably including someone you know and maybe someone you loved and yet you still sit on your ass.


This hits home for me. My brother's wife had to have her gall bladder removed a couple of weeks ago. The surgery was ****ed up as her bile duct leaked into her abdominal cavity post surgery and they had to go back in after laying her open from breastbone to belly button to repair the mess. My brother agrees with me that this sounds like malpractice, but this is now the least of his worries as it turned out the gall bladder was cancerous and has spread. The prognosis is not good.
