I was watching a British documentary about hospitals/ambulances now needing to accommodate more obese people (the link to the video is here and I recommend watching it if you have the time, since it's an hour long).
Many of the paramedics, nurses, and doctors are lovely when they're dealing with the fat patients, but to be honest I have no idea how they do it. These patients eat themselves into a disability, have to be helped with everything, moan and complain constantly and are a drain on health care. I'm probably heartless, but my ideal scenario for health care would be to give fat people one chance to lose weight. If they don't do it, they have to pay for all health-related expenses out of their own pocket.
Anyone have any thoughts about the demand fat people put on hospitals? I've heard plenty of horror stories from nurses and paramedics who have to deal with them and physically carry them around, and I was wondering if anybody had any similar experiences or general thoughts.
