More incompetence from state-run healthcare.

An English hospital has screwed up. Again.

A nurse was gluing a cut closed on a six-year-old boy's forehead, and dripped adhesive in his eye, gluing it shut, too. The hospital now requires (which implies that it didn't before) that, before forehead cuts are glued closed, eye patches have to be placed to prevent that from happening again.

And this is the type and quality of care that Dear Leader wants to gift us with.

What a brave new world that has such people in it!


  1. Dumb *nurse*. It wasn't a doctor. But, is she dumb, or was she just rushed in a short-handed emergency ward packed with people who for the most part probably don't need emergency help? This is what socialized medicine costs: too many consumers going after too few services, leading to overworked and underpaid staff, shortages, and forced rationing.
