Mooron Forgot to Tell us About Healthcare for Ordinary Cubans

Doctor Darsi Ferrer from Havana emailed the below pics showing the hospitals and health service for ordinary Cubans. Here’re the captions for each photograph. I’ll add the English version as soon as I find it online.

Sra. conocida como Fina, ingresada por posible Cáncer de Pulmón en una sala del hospital ¨Julio Trigo¨. No le realizaron la Broncoscopía para confirmar el diagnóstico por estar roto el equipo.

Sala del hospital ¨Salvador Allende¨, antigua Covadonga, donde asistían en ese momento a enfermos de Dengue, por eso el aislamiento con los mosquiteros.

    Wow – well done! This is fantastic!!!! I am going to put a link to this page in my own blog at http://www.districtofcontention.com if you don’t mind…I have blogged about “Mooron” (nice name, you should copyright it and sell it to conservative media for millions), several times since first seeing him promote SICKO on the Daily Show. One of my blogs includes info about the REAL DEAL at Cuban Hospitals – your pictures are a perfect visual of what my words suggest….

    Rock on!

    What! You’re telling me that Cuba isn’t paradise on earth?! No way! ;)

    That was awfully nice of Dr. Ferrier to send those photos (not to mention very dangerous for his life!). These are certainly a nice collection to further the point of the lie about “Cuba’s grand health system”.

    Don’t these photos make you even more ashamed about the US health care system? Doesn’t it make you ashamed to see that Cuba, with these broken down hospitals and machinery is only TWO spots below the US in the WHO? Cuba, with this incredible poverty, is able to provide similar care to that of the US…only two notches below. That’s pitiful. You shouldn’t be looking at their faults, you should be wondering how a country that has these hospitals and incredible poverty is able to provide basically the same quality as the world’s richest nation. Pathetic.

    “You shouldn’t be looking at their faults, you should be wondering how a country that has these hospitals and incredible poverty is able to provide basically the same quality as the world’s richest nation”

    Too bad that that “same quality” in Cuba is for the elite and foreigners only. God Bless the US healthcare, Europe should adopt it instead of keeping one where people risk dying while on a waiting list.

    Docket,

    You need to understand how the WHO ranked the countries. It was not based simply on the average health care a person receives. Rather, it is based on, for lack of a better term, the “overall deal” of the health care. Cost is factored in, too. France is tops not because their actual health care is best, but because their health care isn’t dismal and is received free of charge. (The country’s taxes are NOT factored into cost.)

    Indeed, I believe the US is the only non-universal system on the grid. This means by definition the “costs” associated with it, as judged by this system, will be the highest by far. So the list only shows two ends of the spectrum balancing fairly close – one is crappy health care, but at practically no cost. The other is excellent health care at an expensive cost.

    FYI – The US ranked first in citizen satisfaction with their health care.
