Corpses turned away from Fiji hospital

You think wait times are bad at Canadian hospitals? Are hip replacement and MRI wait-lists and hospital bed closures getting you down? The Fiji Times reports that corpses are being turned away from the Wainibokasi Hospital. You can only stay in the morge at this hospital if you die on the premisis.

"We were forced to close the other two coolers after we found out they were not working,'' Dr Koraai said. "Two bodies were occupying the coolers and relatives were asked to bury them as their bodies were beginning to decompose. This was when we realised that the coolers were not working."

Sometimes we forget how bad it is in other countries.

I was just thinking about the bureaucratic American HMO "service shortage" depicted in last years critically acclaimed film, "Crash", wich I watched last night. Which is worse, not having the resources to provide medical services, or having the resources to do so but wanting save few bucks?
