Re: Ontario to outsource some procedures to specialised clinics

How soon do we all forget the unsanitary colonoscopy scare from last year in this country?

Offloading some procedures like endoscopies simply begs for sloppy sanitary procedures and continues to undermine the quality of health care we are getting for our money in this country.

Considering that we have mice running around in the halls of GNGH, I'll take my chances thanks.

I'd much rather risk the remote possibility of contracting Hantavirus from hospital food than the very real possibility of contracting HIV or Hep C from a dirty endoscope.

The chance of contracting HIV or Hep C from a dirty endoscope is no more "very real" than the aforementioned chance of contracting hanta.

Then there was all that C.Dif and MRSA when I was on the third floor of St. Cats General this past September. Stool inspections every time you take a shit are a wonderful thing.

The very real point here is that it doesn't matter where you go for a medical procedure, be it a hospital or a clinic, if there are issues with the sanitary conditions you could get sick. Or not.
