The high cost of dying part 4

the hospital where she's been for over a year can't keep her
insurance companies won't keep paying for her care
she just not getting better
it's just business you see

the rehabs won't take her
she'll stay too long there
and the insurance and Medicare pay for that
it's just business you see

we'll have to send her home
and teach you how to take care of her
it shouldn't take more than an hour or so to teach you
to do what a nurse, respiratory, CNA,
phlebotomist, physical therapist,
five doctors could do

we will give you the bed in the equipment send doctors and nurses
we are not willing to pay to keep her alive here
she'll have to go home to die
it's just business you see
