PRODUCING WHITE TAPE

In order to avoid “giving” medical care to three out of each 100 residents of this country, a huge bureaucratic de-mystifier may be erected.

Some nations, England for sure, some places in Canada, I think, and others could be named, treat without charge any sick or injured person who comes to a clinical setting for help. This wipes out the need for any record-keeping beyond the medical (including there, the psychological, of course).

Yankee stinginess (it isn’t exactly greed) creates extra costs in record-keeping, probably about commensurate with the saved funds.
