Advocates of state-run health care take great pleasure in pointing to "success" stories in, for example, Japan and Great Britain. One of their favorites, though, has been Norway.
Until now, one supposes:
"State health officials are sounding the sirens themselves over a state of emergency in Norwegian hospitals' emergency rooms, where patients face lengthy delays, inexperienced doctors and often chaotic organization."
The problems stem from inexperienced docs to long waits for staff and equipment. Perhaps more problemmatic is the dearth of monitoring of critically-ill patients and lack of clearcut procedures on how to deal with them.
"I'm from the government, und I'm here to help you!"
