The Wages of Socialized Medicine - What Obamacare Is at its Core

While socialist President Nicolas Maduro honors his dead Communist compatriot, Venezuelans die in  the filthy hospitals meant to save them.

Why don't the doctors use the age old medical technique of allowing maggots eat the infected wounds to clean out the dying flesh since they have no medical supplies to fight the bacteria? m/r

Blood, flies, agony: inside Venezuela's hospital hell

December 1, 2016 - 2016 AFP

Plumber Freddy Herrera broke his leg in four places when he crashed his motorbike nine months ago. But his real troubles started when he got to hospital.
The doctors fixed the leg. Then they had to operate 13 times more to cut out infections caught in the stinking hospital where he languishes.
With open rubbish bins, flies in the corridors and rotting corpses stacked in the morgue, this in the Coche district of Caracas could be the set of a horror film.
But it is all too real: the dirty, miserable human face of Venezuela's economic and political crisis.
There aren't many doctors here—just 18 for a community of 150,000 people. Medics warn harmful bacteria has grown to resist the few antibiotics that are available.
"I'm scared that after fighting this for so long, they will come and tell me they have to take off my leg because the bacteria have infected the bone," Herrera says.
"I don't want to go up to the operating theater anymore. Every time I do, I come back feeling worse."
