I can't help it... it hurts almost as much as circumcision... :tonofbricks:
That's what I thought it said!! :smilewinkgrin:
Why does this need to be funded with our tax dollars?
The number of babies being delivered on Medicaid can't be that high.
It's like a ten second procedure. Hospitals should be willing to do it without charge in such cases. What could it cost them?
Does anyone know what the reimbursement charge is that Medicare is currently paying for the procedure?
Can I just say, "the most painful cut of all"? (I'll get my coat.)
I remember the good ol' days when I was a nursing student in western Queensland, we use to get the Koori blokes who had gone through the secret mens business and had been circumcised with something sharpish but not cleanish.......they would come in to hospital with infected wounds, of course all the nurses were female and no female could attend the bloke so the doctors (being all male) got the job of looking after them. I was very happy not to have to deal with that.
Maybe, if the government had been a little more sensitive to cultural mores, a supply of disposable blades and antiseptic wipes may have been a cheap alternative to hospitalisation and antibiotic treatment and the voiding of humiliation and no doubt fear on the part of the young man in question.
