My friend is in the hospital with cellulitis, but she doesn’t have insurance. They’re probably sending her home tomorrow, but America’s broken healthcare system is ruining everything. Here’s a short rundown:
She needs a home-care nurse to treat her wound every day.
She has no insurance.
For some unknown reason, she is ineligible for Medicare.
She is unemployed and has literally no way to pay for this nurse.
Do we need to try to set up a GoFundMe or something like that? They're not going to force her to lose her leg just because she's poor... are they?
