This three part series delves into the various problems that plague Medicare. One issue that comes up is how the system is set up so that hospitals get more money for each visit, even if those extra visits are a result of an infection picked up in an unsanitary ward. As a result, the highest quality health care providers end up with substantially less funding. The articles also touch on how the Medicare system encourages unnecessary surgery and a possible conflict of interest with the hospital inspectors.
