Nationalized Healthcare Uncovers “Racists”

In case you’re not overloaded with reasons to oppose socialized medicine, here’s one more: When government controls healthcare, you could be branded as a “racist” for wanting a doctor who speaks the native language. From progressive Sweden:

A woman has reported a hospital in western Sweden to national authorities after discovering she and her husband had been described as racists in their son’s medical records. …

Three years ago, when the son was five months old, the woman rushed the boy to the hospital in an ambulance. At the hospital, they encountered a foreign doctor whom the woman was unable to understand. She asked to see a Swedish-speaking doctor, and her request was granted.

When she recently requested her son’s medical journal, she read that she and her husband had were described as racists in the notations.

Needless to say, once you’ve been flagged as a “racist” in the medical database, you aren’t going to be first in line for a transplant.
