MVNHS© Death Panels

Coming soon to the 58 states:

"[MVNHS©] doctors are prematurely ending the lives of thousands of elderly hospital patients because they are difficult to manage or to free up beds ... there was often a lack of clear evidence for initiating the Liverpool Care Pathway ... a 71-year-old who was admitted to hospital suffering from pneumonia and epilepsy was put on the LCP by a covering doctor on a weekend shift."

We've discussed the Liverpool Care Pathway (LCP) before; it's basically the British version of the ObamaTax Death Panels. What's remarkable about this item is the sheer numbers of seasoned Brits going under the LCP bus:

"The [MVNHS©] kills off 130,000 elderly patients every year ... doctors had turned the use of a controversial ‘death pathway’ into the equivalent of euthanasia of the elderly."

Well, it is free health care - you just get what you pay for.
