Wouldn't it be nice if one's own bed could become a "hospital bed"?
In other words, save on the expense of a hospital when incapacitated?

Would be a good idea but doctors stopped doing house calls decades ago (there may be
a few that do now but I don't know of any).

This has nothing to do with beds, she is a serial killer. They are reviewing files and say she can be responsible for up to 300 deaths.

This is what happens with lack of oversight and lax enforcement.

How can this "doctor" be out on bail and still be alive??!!?!?! I'm surprised nobody has administered her style of justice in retaliation.
