Decent chop, but you need to put a news link as per the contest directions (please read them again for the exact link format). This weekly news contest always requires each chop to provide a news link on which the chop is based.
[ Only about a third of hospitals nationwide are meeting the 90-minute standard for treating heart attack patients, so many hospitals attempt to speed up treatment by using time-saving practices and devices. ]
I read this and shuddered. That means I have a 33% chance of surviving a heart attack. This news was such a shock I almost had a heart attack. Despite the slow response time by some of the slower acting hospitals patients did not complain. I guess it's hard to complain when you are dead. Hopefully, the doctors and hospitals in my area will comply with these recommendations. I am afraid to go to the hospital even with a broken leg.
In this contest you are asked to show different methods of speeding up treatment by hospitals or doctors. Show unusual tools or methods used. An example would be a tree branch to set a broken leg or a chainsaw to perform surgery.
