Vermin Infest Britain’s Socialist Hospitals

Imagine hospitals as rife with vermin as Capitol Hill. That will be the situation once Democrats manage to engineer a government takeover of the healthcare industry. Once again, Britain provides a glimpse of a socialist future we would be wise to avoid:

The cleanliness of most NHS [National Health Service] hospitals in England is threatened by frequent invasions of rats, fleas, bedbugs, flies and cockroaches, a report claims.

Figures released by the Conservatives show that 70% of NHS Trusts brought in the pest controllers at least 50 times over a two-year period.

Vermin were found in wards, clinics and even operating theatres. A patients’ group said the situation was revolting.

Infestations have included wasps in a neonatal unit and in operating theaters, rats in a maternity unit, and a children’s accident & emergency ward taken over by flies. Among the other repugnant creatures found in Britain’s socialist hospitals are mice, silverfish, beetles, and bureaucrats, including a spokesman for the Health Protection Agency who shrugs off concerns:

In countries with good standards of healthcare the possibility for insects or pests to transmit infections in hospitals would be very remote.

Yes, but what about countries with socialized healthcare?

Don’t worry. A bureaucrat says they don’t transmit infections.
