People usually possess different perspective on whether the most important thing for the government to improve health care is to clean the environment. Based on my observation and life experience, I disagrees that the most important thing for the government to improve health care is to clean the environment.
First of all, in order to improve health care, it is important to have more medical facilities, but cleaning the environment cannot help government with this purpose. For example, one of my friend, David, broke his leg in a car accident in Green Island, where there is only one hospital in the whole island, near Taiwan. In addition, the facilities in the hospital are too old to be able to make delicate surgeries. Under this circumstances, David can only took a plane flying back to Taiwan to get treatments. As a result, he lost his leg because he waited too long to handle the injuries. Accordingly, it is important for the government to expand and renew the medical facilities to take care of patients.
Secondly, to improve health care, decreasing working hours of doctors is necessary, but to clean the environment cannot achieve this goal. For instance, there was a lawsuit related to a medical issue. A patient got huge bleeding after he left the hospital few days later. Therefore, she was sent to emergency room and had second surgery. And it turned out that a surgery knife was left in patient's stomach because the doctor who did the surgery had worked for more than 15 hours in a row. He was not able to keep concentrating and taking care of everything. Therefore, it is important for government to force hospital reducing the working hour of doctors in case these kinds of medical mistakes happen again.
Last but not least, funding poor people to be able to see a doctor is also important for improving health care, and cleaning the environment cannot allow government to do so. For instance, my cousin John had headache problem since two years ago. He only earns 15,000 NTD per month while seeing a doctor may cost at least 3,000 NTD. So, he did not go to a doctor until he fall unconscious this month. Then, he did the examined after sending to emergency room, finding he had a brain cancer which was unable to cure. Apparently, if government can sponsor part of medical expense for poor people, he will have more chances to be cured since he can see doctors as early as possible.
In conclusion, I strongly disagree that the most important thing for the government to improve health care is to clean the environment. Instead, having more medical facilities, decreasing working hours of doctors, and funding poor people are more important.
