Heart attack/stroke - money please! This is public service healthcare in Radom!

So my overweight aunt stuffed herself stupid at a christening last Sunday. Gave herself a heart attack and stroke the day after.

Sort of a public healthcare message lurking in there somewhere.

Anyway, got taken to the regional hospital - intensive care unit - but the doctors faced a dilemma: how do we get money out of this woman who's paid her public healthcare subs? Answer: deny all news to relatives - absolutely refuse point-blank to speak to them - unless they pay for a private consultation with the lead doctor.

Simple solutions are always the best.

Meanwhile, her prognosis is unclear.

So simply arrange for some Ukrainian negotiation experts to be waiting outside the doctor's house when he gets home after the consultation. They explain that he can either buy some insurance from them (for a price which just so happens to equal the cost of the consultation) or he can lose the use of his legs for several months. Maybe they return the money to you less their agreed fee, maybe they keep it all: you haven't lost any more money and you won't be being asked for any more by those doctors.

hmmmmmmmm, sounds like a wiesniak doctor trying to milk a limey's bank account.

I hope your aunt will be ok.

Cayenne pepper (or any very hot pepper) is real good for the heart, look it up.

Give her a dose of that everyday and she won't need a doctor.

If she is an EU-citizen they must treat her for emergency illnesses (for free). And this is fore sure emergency illnesses.

Absolutely.

Cayenne pepper was your country doctor's cure for exactly this sort of thing for many years.

Won't damage her kidneys either like most prescription drugs will do over time. These days, most doctors are educated by schools that receive grants from the pharmaceutical companies. Thus, they are taught that pharmaceuticals are the way to go and they even get bonuses from big pharma to prescribe their drugs.. They have forgotten what their grandfathers knew

Lots of people die every day from being wrongly medicated or over medicated with pharmaceuticals, be sure you keep an eye on the doctors. My dad even got a nasty staph infection in his bloodstream, sepsis, from dirty hospital equipment, prior to passing away.
