so my sister got sick in china. she went to the emergency room, got a doctor immediately, got a blood test, 3 iv bags, and 1 weeks worth of three different types of medicine (intestine, fever, something else). all this cost under $25 US, no insurance.
in america, she waited 1 hour, saw a doctor who didn’t do any tests, looked in her ear with an otoscope, prescribed some medicine (which needs to be picked up and paid at a pharmacy), got 1 dose of pain relief medicine. and this costs hundreds of dollars, after insurance.
apparently, they don’t even take credit cards at chinese hospitals. why are american hospitals so odd? maybe america has quality otoscopes. surpasses the world.
