    I think children should do more than visit. There ought to be some sort of annual triute. Maybe they should have to hang their parents photo or painting over the mantle.

    The possibilities are endless.

    I think the international medical tourism market is about to really take off.

    You don’t get much in Mexico for your $200.

  4. Devon Herrick says:

    Mexico has universal coverage but if you really need medical care you probably should visit one of the excellent private hospitals that require cash payment at time of service. There are some in Monterrey that rival (or exceed) the quality and amenities commonly found at some of the better hospitals in the United States.

  5. Devon Herrick says:

    I have heard that hospitals increasingly won’t allow parents to videotape the birth of a child. I can see how over-eager parents trying to video a birth might get in the way. But I have also heard arguments that one of the reasons for not allowing video has to do with hospitals not wanting video evidence in the event of a problem birth.

  6. Virginia says:

    My cousin, who recently had a baby, was told by her doctor not to post the sonogram photos on Facebook without first cropping off his name. I’m not sure if that’s a privacy-related issue or what. My cousin didn’t know why he was so reluctant to have his name on the image.

    (She actually had the baby two days ago, and I don’t think they allowed cameras in the OR.)
