Just goes to show how we are being royally fucked by the corporate health system. This is unchecked capitalism my friends. There is nothing wrong with making a buck. But as far as I'm concerned, there is a problem with fucking us at the drive-thru. Free-market my ass. This is a monopoly. And Obama-care is part of it. Not that there is a better choice right now of course. Do you really believe that Romney will repeal it? Bwahahaha!
Marcie Edmonds was tearing open a box of air-conditioner filters in
her garage last June when she felt a sharp sting in her abdomen.
The 52-year-old Ahwatukee Foothills woman had never felt a scorpion
sting before that day. She had no intention of seeking medical help, but
within an hour of the sting, Edmonds' mild tingling sensation worsened
with throat tightness, blurry vision, darting eyes and tense muscles.
She could not walk and had trouble breathing.
With the help of a friend, she called Poison Control and was advised
to go to the nearest hospital that had scorpion antivenom, Chandler
Regional Medical Center. At the hospital, an emergency room doctor told
her about the antivenom, called Anascorp, that could quickly relieve her
symptoms. Edmonds said the physician never talked with her about the
cost of the drug or treatment alternatives.
