RHH emergency department director Emma Huckerby said Mr Richardson was being monitored in the transit lounge when his family arrived to collect him.

The employee who was monitoring him:

This is what happens when you implement Obamacare Australia.  Even your ex-citizen Arnold Schwartzneger agrees.

Not sure why he was admitted in the first place. Sounds like he needs to be allowed to ease into the next phase of the lifecycle. This is one way that Obamacare will be better than these socialist like health systems found in much of The Realm. It won't allow tea totin' conservatards to recklessly extend gramp's life like this and waste that money that can be better spent on a 30 year old's health needs.

Strange. One does not normally find that kind of incompetence, indifference and inefficiency among unionized government employees

Hmm, "vascular dementia", checknthe wiki... Mini strokes caused by poor blood flow. Like Joe Biden, he could seem surprisingly lucid some of the time.

This whole kerfluffle is an old sitcom plot made obsolete by cellphones.

Graham Richardson, 75, suffers from vascular dementia, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, heart disease and an aortic aneurism.
==============================================

COPD, heart disease, an aortic aneuryism, AND pneumonia... and he's still alive?

I'm thoroughly impressed.

/But at the same time, his life royally sucks.

Sweet farking Christ,

Why has no one killed this dangerous criminal yet?

Look...if I'm wandering with a bag pills, leave me the fark alone. And, for Christ's sake, DON'T CALL MY WIFE!

Man vascular dementia, it has turned the wife of a good friend and colleague from one of the brightest, wittiest and kindest folks I know into someone who struggles with life daily and even with treatment cannot do many any of the even simple things she used to do.  Like all memory problems I wouldn't wish them on my worst enemy as they really steal you from you and from those that love you.

Arnold is from Austria, not Australia. There's kind of a big difference.
