Gummint Health Care Stories, #56,946

Here's a nationalized-medicine patient who will NOT cost a lot to treat.

Health officials are still investigating how a man found dead at the Health Sciences Centre ER waiting area escaped the attention of medical staff for 34 hours.

"Staff weren't aware he was waiting for care," said Dr. Brock Wright, chief operating officer for the Winnipeg Regional Health Authority, at a news conference this morning. "They didn't know he was in the queue waiting to be seen."

Dead patient.

Brain-dead staff.
