It is no surprise that if you put women and men together in the same hospital ward, there might be some cases of assault. And of course there’s the whole embarrassment factor when it comes to certain bedside medical procedures or discussions. But if you are in the US, you are wondering why anyone would be talking about same sex wards. In fact, you may even be wondering what a ward is. (It’s like having a shared room, only with 5-7 other people.)
The Labour government promised it was going to eliminate mixed-sex wards in the National Health Service. It has now abadoned that promise. Health minister Lord Darzi has now admitted it is “an aspiration that cannot be met”. That’s the reality of socialised medicine.
All the Democrats running for president are promoting socialised medicine in one form or another. I just wanted you to know what you have to look forward to.
