It's nothing to do with the quality of the education and everything to do with the rights that the papers give.
Not satisfied with your crap education and that`s why you are so frustrated living among educated Polish people ????
she will not give birth to our baby in ireland because she doesnt trust our hospital system here
Reggie -your wife is right and let her give birth in Poland; she will be here in the care of professionals and will be sure she will not fall as a victim of statistics. The rankings are for fools. I feel safe, in Polish hospitals person is not treated like an object, like a screw in the machinery. In the EU, Canada and the U.S. patients are being manipulated and brainwashed that they should think that they live in paradise. In Poland, the system may not be perfect, but it is honest. Behind the facade of smiles in your countries lies hypocrisy and perfidy, the patient and his health does not mean anything, what matters is - rankings. Your delusion is that everything is perfect , but in fact it is not. As an example, I will give Mount Sinai Hospital , Toronto, Canada on University Avenue . There, I gave birth to my daughter. Labor lasted 10 hours , at all costs they tried to force my body to natural childbirth . After 10 hours of torture , there came a surgeon who said that the fetus is positioned incorrectly , so only caesarean section would safe our lives . Epidural did not prevent my great pain I have been for 10 hours . I was kept under the huge stress , pain and frustration. All this because of recommendations from the ministry to save costs , because the cesarean sections are costly in comparison to natural births . They want also to manipulate the statistics to be ranked higher and tease people and delusioned voters that they live in a safe country with a safe health system , while it is nothing but deceiving potential voters . Therefore I was a victim of this propaganda .
In Poland , fortunately, there is no such pressure , and women can choose the type of birth . Moreover, in Canada, this level of professionalism is so low that the doctor ( surgean or obstetrician is not able to manipulate the fetus to be properly set up and support emerging , where in Poland it is a common practice . In Canada, even the doctor does not have such skills.
Epidural is also not given widely , because it harms more than helps . It was applied to me and since that I1ve had a constant back pain . In Poland, there are no artificially improving the rankings practices , but the appropriate level of treatment is provided .
Why do these rankings take into account factors such as natural childbirth , instead of eg the number of transplants surgeries per capita among those who are in need ? The hospital should ensure cleanliness and sterility , Poland is ahead in that than more developed countries . In these rankings , for example, they take into account the number of cancer cases , which is also unfair. Poland in 1996 was under the influence of radioactive radiation due to the Chernobyl disaster. Doctors at that time said that the incidence of cancer will increase significantly over the next years. So these statistics also lie and obscure the picture , since at the start in Poland there are more people at risk of cancer.
In relation to having children the health system in Ireland is excellent, my personal experience of the Polish health system, in general is that it is a mess.( a total disaster with no communication and its nobodies fault)
Polish health system one of the worst in Europe: report
It is good that you Milky cited this report: healthpowerhouse.com/files/Report-EHCI-2012.pdf
I have read quickly this report and I can only say it is a manipulation of data . There are factors which are irrelevant for the patient , but they are valued by its authors , like having internet site about medicines or booklets from the hospitals about procedures .
In important factors Poland ranks high or in the middle .In some factors there is nothing to do by the system , because for example cancer morbidity among Polish people is high .
Let me show you some examples : in outpatients visits per person per year , Poland is ranked 7-th , yellow color ( diagram from page 11 ). It means that supply of medical services is high In Poland , or in % of streptococcus infections prevention in hospitals Poland is almost 50 % better than Ireland or UK and 3 times better than Italy ( which means, there is a small chance you will contract bacterial infection from a hospital treatment in Poland )- page 63 .
Also this report contains Cesarean sections data, which is irrelevant . It is caused by individual tendency not the system , and moreover Polish women can choose what kind of birth they want .
There is a cesarean section on demand in Polish hospitals.
In outcomes and prevention sections which are the most important there are spheres where Poland is in the middle. We lag behind in cancer, undiagnosed diabetes or kidney transplants or dialysis. These are spheres which Polish system must improve . In these cases you have to pay for it , which I understand , because "Poland is not the richest country in Europe " and these procedures are very costly . There are only 8000 patients per year , who require that treatment, but the cost is 240 000 000 PLN.
