Kind of Stupid

These are physicians and scientists. Yet, they’ve basically made up a grading system of emergency healthcare. There is no apparent baseline and it certainly is not comparative with other systems.

I mean, there’s really a difference between the model in California and Arkansas? Why didn’t they compare the United States with other countries before giving the U.S. a grade? All we can take from this study is that you’re better off being a victim of trauma in California than Arkansas.

Emergency care in the United States is comparatively fine (and that is all it is worth judging it on). There I’ve said it.
