Is it true that if you don't know someone in the hospital you don't care?

Italy is one of the European countries that guarantees greater protection of the right to treatment. In fact, in addition to all Italian citizens, all European and non-European citizens who are regular or irregularly present in our territory have access to treatment.

All this represents a right enshrined in art. n. 32 of our Constitution, of which the universality of care is the cornerstone.
Being treated in the times that are considered right for your health, however, is often not easy. Precisely to remedy this, today, in many healthcare facilities in our country, it is possible to book the services to which one needs to undergo thanks to a unified booking system, the Single Booking Center or CUP. This system, which provides for the integration of the booking agendas of all health facilities, allows citizens to book services by reducing waiting times.
Regarding hospitalization, according to the data available on the New Health Information System, for the first 6 months of 2014 hospital discharges (and, therefore, ordinary hospitalizations) were more than 3 million and nearly 1 million discharges during the day, more than 160,000 resignations from rehabilitation facilities and more than 50,000 resignations for long-term care.
Italy, therefore, still cares and fortunately cares for everyone, always trying to do better.
