Your Stories Of Being Sick Inside The U.S. Health Care System
We asked people to share their experiences of the health care system, and within 24 hours, we were flooded with close to 1,000 responses.
The stories, often lengthy and detailed, echoed what our poll found: Americans with recent firsthand experience of the U.S. medical system are more likely than the general public to say there are serious problems with the cost and quality of care.
From Oregon to Florida and Maine to Mississippi, Facebook respondents told wrenching tales of bankruptcies, missed diagnoses, medical errors, miscommunication and treatment that was delayed or foregone because of its cost.
No surprises here…but interesting nonetheless. Read about the original poll here and read personal stories here.
