No Drugs, Please

A man went to the hospital with heart attack symptoms. He said he wanted no drugs.

In 2000 the Institutes of Medicine reported that medical errors were the eighth leading cause of death in the U.S., killing between 44,000 and 98,000 people each year.

No.drugs? Well, now, really! You might as well go to a restaurant and order no food. Restaurants are places that serve food, and you shouldn’t go there in the first place if you don’t want any. Nor should you go to the hospital if you want no drugs. Hospitals are places that serve drugs. There is nothing else they can do in the hospital, because that’s all they know. If this man wanted rest, quiet, and comfort, he surely could have gotten that at home.

But he made the mistake of going to the hospital, and after 17 days his wife wound up with a bill for $4,000, of which $559 was for drugs: narcotics, tranquilizers, diuretics, anesthetics, antibiotics, analgesics, and heart medicine.

I say his wife got the bill, because the man didn’t stay around to pay it The drugs that were forced on him daily both orally and intravenously caused his body to swell to double its normal size before he died.

And you can bet that his death was blamed on the heart attack. You can be sure everybody was advised that the doctors and the hospital attendants did everything they could to “help” him. The almost daily doses of from two to six different drugs were “necessary” and, of course, when he died, he died “in spite of’ their heroic attempts to “save” him.
