Canadian Health Care: No Waiting for Dogs and Cats
Not all Canadian health care is long lines and lack of innovation. We found one place where providers offer easy access to cutting-edge life-saving technology, such as CT scans. And patients rarely wait.
But they have to bark or meow to get access to this technology. Vet clinics say they can get a dog or a cat in the next day. People have to wait a month.
~John Stossel's latest column "Socialized Medicine Is Broken and Can't Be Fixed" (Note: The overall Canadian median waiting time for CT scans is 4.3 weeks in the traditional 12 specialties and and 4.5 weeks for psychiatry, see Fraser Institute.)
