Paid medicine is not better than the usual

Paid medicine is not better than the usualPaid medicine is not better than the usual One of the most common medical myths is the myth about the benefits of paid medicine - say, if physicians receive for their work is good money, they treat patients with the utmost attention and strive to truly help the sick, not just to quickly get rid of them. But, as shown by studies conducted by canadian scientists, the real situation in medicine is completely the opposite of this myth. Data provided to them in the last issue of "Canadian Medical Association Journal suggests that paid medical institutions that do not receive state funding and owned by private individuals, the mortality rate is 2% higher than the average for state hospitals. This seemingly small difference means that if all hospitals in Canada will be paid (such as health care reform has long been debated by government), each year the number of deaths of their patients will increase compared to current rates at 2200. "We assume that the reason for increased mortality of patients pay medical institutions - some "minor" errors committed by their employees in order to obtain greater profits, - said the head of the study, Dr. Devereaux from McMasters University in Ontario. Of course, to prove it is virtually impossible. But we hope that the presented data we will help the government to make the right decision on the issue of health care reform in Canada.".
