Hospitals Introduce the Medical Obfuscation Procedure

As anyone unfortunate enough to have to seek hospital care today quickly learns, all services no longer go by the simple names of yesteryear.

Someone operates on your heart, that’s a cardiologic procedure, presumably much more complex and more costly than an old-timey “operation.”.

Likewise, someone sets your broken finger, that’s an orthopedic procedure.

Likewise again, if you can get someone to bring you breakfast before lunchtime, that’s the early morning nutritional procedure.

And now, if they cut off your left leg when it was the right leg that was black from gangrene, that’s called the “wrong site procedure.”
