Socialized Medicine Alert: UK Doctors Have to Prescribe Water to Keep Medical Staff From Allowing Patients to Die of Dehydration

Spring Water, 16.9 Oz. Bottles, Case Of 24

This is the system President Obama and Democrats want to bring to America. Obamacare is only the first step.
(Daily Mail) — Doctors are prescribing drinking water for neglected elderly patients to stop them dying of thirst in hospital.

The measure – to remind nurses of the most basic necessity – is revealed in a damning report on pensioner care in NHS wards.

Some trusts are neglecting the elderly on such a fundamental level their wards could face closure orders.
The snapshot study, triggered by a Mail campaign, found staff routinely ignored patients’ calls for help and forgot to check that they had had enough to eat and drink.
