Regulating away healthcare

A doc talks about bureaucrats and politicians with good intentions. They are putting greater and greater distance between medicine and common sense.

It's become a sisyphean nightmare.

Endless reguirements for documentation to get paid, defending one's actions so the patient will get paid, justifying one's actions so the hospital will get paid, while covering your ass so you won't get sued. All while trying to take care of patients.

We are left to wonder, where has healthcare gone?

The answer is simple: it's gone the way of the bureaucrats.
