Q: No money >> no life. Have rmb 1000 cash if you drink in prc china?

 

On the evening of Dec 18, 2017 a 15 years old, Chen, went out for drinks with a bunch of friends. They ordered a dozen bottes of two brands of chinese wine, 20 and 32 degrees respectively.

 

Chen passed out and his friends sent him to the hospital (the registered time of admission was midnight) which asked for rmb 500 before treating the unconscious Chen.  The hospital didn't accept wechat phone payment and they didn't have the cash so they left. They later said they left to find the money.  (earthizen:  interestingly they didn't leave someone behind to stand watch)

 

The hospital called them up later notifying them the fee was rmb 1000.  

 

Hospital released CCTV --- Rotation of duty, some doctor passed by at 0:48am, glanced at the kid and walked off.  It was a security guard who noticed something was wrong with the kid later on and notified the nurses. The kid choked on his vomit.  Heart stopped at 2am+ cause of death being acute alcohol poisoning.  Time of death on the certificate was 3:17am.

 

Blame who?

If you ever have a heart attack or serious accident in China make sure you preplan (typing that tongue in cheek but it wouldn't surprise me if that's what the hospitals tell people) and have lots of cash on hand, and someone to help you with all the running around and lining up at various different counters they have you do.

 

I've often wondered how many people manage to crawl into a hospital on their own, only to die because they physically can't go and fight the crowd at the various windows to get a receipt to take to some other window to get a number that allows you to fight another crowd to see a doctor who will then send you another window to pay and get another receipt so you can go to line up again to get an x-ray to take back to the doctor - after taking another number and waiting / fighting the queue jumpers again.

 

I know hospitals are probably understaffed and have their issues everywhere you go, but Chinese hospitals have always just left me astounded and terrified that one day I may end up in one with something serious requiring urgent attention.

I did know someone who was rushed to hospital with a suspected Heart Attack, had 2 doctors tell him so (and tried to get him the most expensive treatment they could), only to consult a doctor on arrival back home to be told he had bruised ribs.

 

I. for one, would not trust a place where it is not uncommon for the doctor you are consulting to be smoking at the same time as talking to you, or smell of cigarettes.

Where are the China defenders and where are the right wingers railing against universal healthcare.

 

You have to be logical, this is the other option

A:Wow, you really found that nitpicky talking point that elevates the fossil fuel industry to the same level as the interests of humanity. Isn't it all just a "liberal" scam, if you don't look too closely at the absence of logic? "Yes, it must be. My masters are hinting that that's what I should believe!"

You've made it clear you are consciously ignoring the pollution and global warming. Since your handlers, the conservative establishment whose dismantling of the carbon credit system and environmental destruction you choose to ignore, have made it clear you should bark in this direction, you are eager to please!

Such an admirably domesticated, dependable, subservient human. I'm sure your handlers will throw you a bone while they bring home the bacon for themselves. You're so obedient, you deserve a doggie cookie! Who's a good boy? You are! Yes, you are. U-S-A! Woof woof woof! -- coineineagh
