IT'S ENOUGH TO MAKE YOU SICK!
We read: "Squalid operating theatres and decaying equipment are plaguing doctors and nurses at Hornsby Ku-ring-gai Hospital. "
...........OK and that's just one of hundreds of public hospitals in News South Wales that have been allowed to run down, to what is nothing less than another page in the book of disgrace and mismanagement of the Carr/Iemma/Rees period. If there is just one thing that the government of any country has to get right and maintain to the highest standard possible, it's public health!
This is yet another glowing example, as if we need any more, of just why this state ALP government is unelectable in 2011. Although I did hear quite a few people say that back in 2007 so I guess they are still in with a chance?
I also remember not too long ago , our illustrious leader, K. Rudd, waxing lyrical about how the Federal Government was going to take over the responsibility of public health. Funny I can't see or hear him on this now. Too late PM, it will take more than two terms in office to fix the last 13 years of rape and ruin that this state's hospitals are in. Don't get me wrong, it's not the nurses or the doctors to blame here, they are still the best in the world.
I do not envy the task ahead for Opposition Leader Barry O'Farrell. I'd bet London to a brick that the health Minister, John Della Bosca and his lovely Belinda wouldn't step into a public hospital anywhere if they needed help. It would be straight to the private hospital and who would blame them. It's enough to make you sick !
