ALWAYS THE LAST PLACE YOU LOOK

A 72-year-old British man’s dentures were found lodged in his throat eight days after he had surgery, leading to complications and forcing him to later undergo an emergency procedure.

It took EIGHT DAYS to notice this? Government health care in action.

British medical care coming to a country near you very soon.

We need to ask nursecindy, but I believe when a patient in a hospital bed turns blue and starts choking while pointing at his throat,they really shouldn't have to wait 8 days before being checked on.

The late, great comic David Brenner used to say, "Of course they're in the last place you look. Who finds something and then keeps searching for it?"

Sharon, I sometimes keep looking for something I found. Of course it might be pre-dementia.
