Hillary, blood clots and the Liverpool care pathway.

Good thing Hillary isn’t on nationalized health care in England.

Up to 60,000 patients die on the Liverpool Care Pathway each year without giving their consent, shocking figures revealed yesterday.

A third of families are also kept in the dark when doctors withdraw lifesaving treatment from loved ones.

Despite the revelations, Jeremy Hunt last night claimed the pathway was a ‘fantastic step forward’.

Despite the revelations, Jeremy Hunt last night claimed the pathway was a ‘fantastic step forward’.

In comments that appeared to prejudge an official inquiry into the LCP, the Health Secretary said ‘one or two’ mistakes should not be allowed to discredit the entire end-of-life system.

But Elspeth Chowdharay-Best of Alert, an anti-euthanasia group, said: ‘The Pathway is designed to finish people off double quick. It is a lethal pathway.

‘Mr Hunt has made a nonsense of the claim of his ministers that there is going to be an independent inquiry.’

The review follows a public outcry over a string of disturbing cases, highlighted by this paper, in which patients or their families were ignored.

The pathway involves withdrawal of lifesaving treatment, with the sick sedated and usually denied nutrition and fluids. Death typically takes place within 29 hours.

The 60,000 figure comes from a joint study by the Marie Curie Palliative Care Institute in Liverpool and the Royal College of Physicians.

It will always come down to them and us in the end as the resources available to the “State” become limited.  But here, Hillary bumps her head and is immediately rushed to a medical facility, given test NOT available to the injured in Britain and a blood clot is discovered.  Hopefully, it is non life threatening, and even a little overdone in order to avoid hearings (if you get my drift). I am not a fan of Hillary’s but I don’t want anyone to die stupid, and falling down and hitting your noggin is stupid.

However, had Hillary done it as a regular Joe in Britain, she’d be dead.  If she suffers a brain damaging event and left disabled in a hospital, she’d be dead- starved to death or having died of dehydration while sedated and apparently without Bill being notified.

These are the things you should think about as we implement Obamacare, our version of nationalized healthcare, provided by a nation running out of resources.
