Watched a bit of the Assembly public input hearing yesterday on AB 564. I think that is the "single payer" bill placed on hold. And the line to urge the release was long and filled with every sad sack the left could muster. They all want us to give them free stuff of course. Yet I thought Medicaid and the other existing programs did that without totally destroying the state's budget. Anyway, the line of people would make your eyes tear up.

This could have an impact on life expectancy, going to a US hospital can be a death sentence.
Medical Errors Are Third Leading Cause of Death in the U.S. Medical errors are the third leading cause of death in the U.S., after heart disease and cancer, causing at least 250,000 deaths every year, according to an analysis out Tuesday indicating that patient safety efforts fall far short.May 3, 2016

Russ: Agreed.
A few years back, before the RN snatched it from me and said I wasn't authorized to see my information on their computer, I was looking over my medical records at our local dignified hospital's ER. I was surprised to learn I had a history of tuberculosis!! I drew attention to that piece of misinformation with the attending physician and he told me to take it up with medical records. I did just that and they said I had to take it up with the doctor who entered it into my records. Unfortunately they couldn't figure out who the doctor was. There is apparently a petition process that I can spend hours/days on to expunge my medical records of incorrect information. I didn't bother. To make a long story short, to this day I am on record as having been treated for TB. If I get some sort of treatment based on that error, an error that has been repeatedly called to their attention, my guess is that some attorney could make himself a bit of money.
