On staff not by staff.
 
2009-11-05 07:47:09 PM
Where else would hospital staff commit their crimes?
 
2009-11-05 07:48:28 PM
Once again I'd like to point out that we founded this country with the ideal that we can run things better than the english.
 
2009-11-05 07:48:31 PM
Oh, that did it. I am now against the single payer system because of this retarded article. You can stop posting this shiat now. You got me.
 
2009-11-05 07:49:31 PM
Hm. Alcohol-fueled attacks on typical Friday and Saturday nights. So? We've got gang members walking into our ERs with guns. It has nothing to do with socialized vs private medicine. It has to do with humans being f*cking worthless.

feckingmorons: On staff not by staff.

Oh, that changes things.

So people commit crimes against hospital staff while they are at work in hospitals, as opposed to say, following them home or to their local pub. Makes more sense that way.

Oooh! Oooh! Is this that one thread where somebody goes "Ewww social medicine FOAD!" and somebody else gets all "I guess you LIKE not having insurance dumbass FAIL" and then everyone yells a lot and calls each other names?

I LOVE that thread!

You know if somebody is holding a gun to your head and making you read shiat on fark you should just let them shoot you.

So violent crimes by hospital staff means universal health care is bad? Really? Are you retarded, submitter? At least then you'd have an excuse.

AND BECAUSE OF THIS I CONDEMN SOCIALIZED MEDICINE FOR ALL AND FOR GOOD THERE IT IS THE END PERIOD AND NO MORE EVER DOT COM!!!!!`
 
2009-11-05 08:18:20 PM
May have something to do with police SOP, too.

Like taking drunks to the hospital for rehydration vs. sticking them in a cage for the night.

Is every post you make a variation on this?

Your account was created in 2005 and you have over 1,000 greenlights. Are you still, after all this time, surprised and outraged by the level of discourse on Fark? Are you just really stupid or are you just faking outrage?
 
2009-11-05 08:42:25 PM
Good thing nobody wants full socialized medicine like England. We want a Single-Payer system.

Read the article, you twit! It's about attacks on staff, not attacks by staff. There's a difference.

Attacks by staff in the NHS are called treatment.
 
2009-11-05 09:16:07 PM
Damn, looks like Drew's mom has mod duty again.

Glad to see this has been taken care of.
 
2009-11-05 09:21:51 PM
I bet the number here in the US is much, much higher.

Therefore privatized health-care has cooties.

ftfa:

"In April 2006, trainee accountant and former altar boy Stuart Harling, 19, stabbed nurse Cheryl Moss, 33, more than 70 times in a frenzied attack.

He had spent months playing violent computer games and researching how to kill."

1) this has nothing to do w/NHS and article states elsewhere that most violence occurs in emergency rooms, also unrelated to NHS, esp. since e-rooms are not final recourse in a socialized system: submitterfail
2) former altar boy? Yeah, video games are to blame: articlefail
3) spent months researching killing and still took 70 stabs to kill?: psychokidfail (ok, maybe she died on stab 1 and the rest was elaboration)
 
2009-11-05 10:15:12 PM
It's very efficient of the staff to keep their violent attacks inside the hospitals, rather than go out and wander the streets looking for people to attack.

I used to be disgusted; now I'm just amused.™

You know the knuckleheads don't even realize there's a difference right?

So now we have a socialism - hospitals - violent crime - f*ck tha police thread.

imbrial: 2) former altar boy? Yeah, video games are to blame: articlefail

...and now we have a socialism - hospitals - violent crime - f*ck tha police - touched by an angel thread. Could we work soccer hooligans in somehow, see if we can cause a snark singularity?

imbrial: the rest was elaboration

I like your style.

Please no violence on Guy Fawkes Day. M'kay?

I didn't know serving British food was considered a violent crime in Britain?

Subby is a trolling, comprehensively challenged, jackass!
 
2009-11-05 11:17:40 PM
My mum worked ER in New Orleans 40 years ago, and says it was the same as this.

Near as I can tell, the article says that heavy drinking turns idiots into d-bags, the fuzz are handling it poorly, and NHS is caught in the middle.
 
2009-11-05 11:18:30 PM
We all agree the system needs fixing. We disagree on the method by which the fixing should be accomplished.

Considering the discrepancy between the headline and the article, my guess is that he is illiterate and unable to actually read the threads.

Well I'm not surprised. The US military has socialized medicine and look what happened today! The shrinks are killing people!
 
2009-11-05 11:22:41 PM
I'm an RN in Houston, and it's the same over here. Hospitals are buying so much in the customer service model that the staff are chided for angering the patients.

Clearly the violence stems from their system of bill payment.
 
2009-11-05 11:29:39 PM
LOL @ the butthurt coming from the socialized medicine sheep
 
2009-11-05 11:30:23 PM
I'm no fan of socialized anything, but this doesn't sound like any fault of the medical system. If you ask me, they need to spend a little more quality time beating their criminals into submission.
 
2009-11-05 11:30:26 PM
So if we have "socialized" medicine every hospital will be like ER? I can handle that. I'm all for Linda Cardellini and young Sherri Stringfield.

If british people had to live in a country with the british health care system, they'd all be dead! I heard it on Fox News and Fark.com, my #1 and #2 sources for news for the retarded.
 
2009-11-05 11:34:16 PM
subby needs to be less dumb and more "socialized"
 
2009-11-05 11:34:33 PM
What better place to get hurt than in a hospital?
 
2009-11-05 11:34:33 PM
Great, more FUD and fear-mongering for page views.
