The MVNHS© Makes an Arse of Itself

For nine long years, young Jerome Bartens suffered from acute hearing loss. Doctors were stumped, until they finally figured out that it was due to a long-lost cotton ball.

But that's old news.

Apparently, the MVNHS© is now aiming somewhat, um, lower:

"A young mum died after a series of blunders by doctors who failed to spot a six-inch long toilet brush handle embedded in her buttock."

Yes, you read that correctly: the government-issue doc's so esteemed by our own proponents of nationalized health care missed a half-foot long toilet brush handle protruding from a rather obvious place. There is no humor here, only pathos:

"Cindy [the patient] ... spent more than ten hours in surgery at Nottingham's Queens Medical Centre but died from massive blood loss."

Now aren't you looking forward to our own new health care system?
