Jedidiah, you're normally pretty astute, but on this issue I must inform you that with all due respect you have not got a single fucking clue.
*Neither* of those things happened to me when I was hospitalised in China a couple of years ago.
What I did get was prompt, professional, and effective treatment by very qualified doctors and staff using the latest equipment in a very modern and well-maintained facility.
I also received a bill for 1600RMB, because I'm not a Chinese citizen and I informed them that I was able to pay.
Can you remind me which US hospital it is that only charges $250 for ER admission + overnight stay? I can't seem to recall...
