Sweden: Elderly & Sick must pay for Flu Shots

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , , , , , , , , — entry @ 19:55PM

The Västra Götalands region refuses to give out free flu shots – despite th fact that the number of vaccinations have decreased and the risks for old and sick are greater now than before.

Swedish Healthcare

The region is one of three Swedish regions that still charges old people and people with certain illnesses or diseases, the high risk groups.

No FREE flu shots for more then 270,000 high risk people in the Gothenburg area

Approximately 270 000 people in the region are in the high risk group, and they still have to pay the 100 crowns in order to get their flu shots.

Every year 2000 elderly die from the flu, or side effects of the flu, such as pneumonia. Hospital care for people with severe flu costs a lot more for Sweden than the flu shots would.

Very few young people within the risks group get vaccinated, and that is also something that ought to change. Just because you are young doesn’t necessarily mean that you are strong enough to handle a flu.

Albert Mohler: The Blame Game

You knew it was coming. In the aftermath of disaster, a phenomenon called the “blame game” soon rears its head. The impulse to assign moral responsibility is normal—even healthy—but the game often plays itself out in irrational ways.

Swedes Continue to suffer long waiting time at ER

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , , , , , , , — MonkeyPrincess @ 22:30PM

Every third person that gets signed in at the ERs around Gothenburg has to spend more than 4 hours of waiting before they are considered fully cared for.

A lot of this might have to do with people coming to the ER with problems that aren’t exactly considered an emergency, and instead should be dealt with by a district nurse or a regular doctor.

A large number of beds at the Gothenburg hospitals are occupied by patients that the communities aren’t bringing back home to nursing homes and service homes, patients that really don’t need the special hospital care anymore – this in its own turn has to do with the lack of homes available for the elderly and sick. This affects the ERs, as they have trouble getting emergency patients signed in to wards due to lack of beds.
