What does it Look Like when you Receive Ration Healthcare


Dr. Gene Dorio, a geriatric physician joins Dr. George to discuss what is really happening on the front line of the hospital care. Dr. Dorio is right in the mix of hospital care and he describes the rise of a two tier system, a decrease in quality patient care, and a too powerful to fail hospital administration system that is more concerned with their bottom line than patient care. this is what rationed healthcare looks like.

Hospital care is being designed in Washington D.C. and many of the rules they are creating don’t apply to the people creating the rules. Doctors are watching the health care system decay before their eyes and they feel helpless to fix it other than point out where the flaws in the system exist.
