What are the inequalities in health care services?

August 3 Finnegan Carrington 0 Comments

Well folks, it's high time we chatted about the Grand Canyon of health care - yeah, you guessed it, inequalities! Now, don't get me wrong, I'm not throwing a pity party here, but it's like comparing apples and oranges when it comes to access and quality of health care for different groups. Some folks are cruising in a limo on a highway, while others are bumping along on a dirt road in an old jalopy. You might be thinking, "Surely not in this day and age!" But I kid you not, income, race, and even where you hang your hat can affect the sort of medical attention you receive. It's a bit of a pickle, isn't it? But hey, acknowledging the problem is the first step to fixing it, right?

What is tertiary health care?

In my research, I've found that tertiary health care refers to specialized care that is typically provided in hospitals like medical centers or regional facilities. This level of care includes complex procedures such as surgeries, intensive care, and long-term treatment for chronic illnesses. It's the third level of health care, after primary and secondary care. It's usually accessed via a referral from a primary or secondary healthcare professional. In essence, tertiary care is the high-level health care we turn to for serious health issues.
