A (Traumatic) Sphincter Says What?

| | Comments (0)

In an emergency, timing is critical, but there are no national standards for trauma care. Can anything be done about it?

Why would we want or need a national standard for such things? Are we incapable of having our own perfectly good local standards? If we are, then by what logic would we think national standards would be any better?

OK, fine, some places don't have good enough care. Why is the solution national standards, instead of local citizens saying "let's fix this ourselves?"

As Fred Thompson said recently:

Before anything else, folks in Washington ought to be asking first and foremost, "Should government be doing this? And if so, then at what level of government?"
