UK Midwife: Cutbacks Jeopardize Patient Care

Ad Feedback

While the U.S. debates health care reform, the United Kingdom is having more problems with its own National Health Service.

A former British midwife reported in the London Daily Mail that women are neglected for much needed care during labor and delivery. That's because state-run hospitals are understaffed due to cutbacks.

There is usually one midwife for every 32 mothers about to deliver. And new mothers are rushed home soon after delivery.

The midwife also says there is not enough staff to keep hospitals clean.
