Death and politics

A man bled to death in an Irish hospital while his family looked helplessly on. Facilities and medical care was available to help the man but they were refused. Why? Because of the incompetence, in fighting and arrogance of so called medical professionals in the so called Irish health service.

Meanwhile, as the grieving family tried to come to terms with the shocking report into the man’s death the person in charge of the health service, Mary Harney, was being praised by all and sundry for the quality of her political leadership.

Nobody has been held accountable for this man’s death, nobody ever will. He is just one of many people who have died while in the care of the Irish health service and to date not a single person has been brought to book
