    Maybe there should be a pet tax, just like the tobacco tax and the proposed fast food tax — to cover unpaid bills in emergency rooms.

    Only kidding.

    The figure on hospital EMRs is much lower than what I have seen before. Appaently, the real problem is much greater than most of us supposed.

    According to news stories on Natasha Richardson’s death from a head injury after a fall while skiing in Canada, Quebec (population 7.6 million) has no airlift for trauma patients. http://tinyurl.com/cbwt2r

     In the U.S., Colorado (population 4.9 million) has multiple airlift systems that provide rapid medivac to Denver’s Level I trauma centers for patients in 9 states. http://www.airlifedenver.com/

    Just one more reason why the best skiing is in Colorado, and one more example of how higher U.S. spending on health care benefits sick people.
