The Cost of Healthcare

People wonder why healthcare is so expensive in the US. Ron had his 2nd cataract surgery here in Budapest, the second eye. He was so thrilled with the results from the first surgery. Now he only needs to wear glasses for reading. However, each time one of us is in the hospital (I have had a different type of surgery here), I cannot help but notice how much the doctors do for a fraction of the pay of American doctors and the roles of the nurse are extensive.
Compare an American Nurses station in the US with a typical one in Budapest.
