I've always said I don't care if the cook spits in my food, unless he tells me about it.

You are no longer on jail. So you can (and should) complain about bad cookers.

My point is, how can I know to be offended if I don't even know about the offense?

I'm also the type to avoid being offended and give others the opportunity to correct any problem they are responsible for.

If we would apply such philosophy (about don't care) to hospitals, many people would die of infections due workers makind dirty.

The point is that such places, fast foods, are not safe, and have workers who hate their job and express their frustration spiting on the food or similar things.
Typical of cowards... they should go to jail.

I remamber when I brought some burger home made to the physiotherapist girls who helped me with a tendon inflamation, and even some of the girls not being very nice I did the burger in very clean and nice conditions as I would do for the nicest people.

Sometimes I think some people really need physical punishment in childhood. Some sort of people don't listen to reason. They feel pleasure making wrong and so need to feel some pain for the evil they did, to breakdow the mechanism of "self reward being a freak".

As I said, I would take offense if I had knowledge of someone spitting in my food. I'd apply minimum necessary confrontation to allow them to correct the problem and hopefully to correct their behavior.

Your point about hospitals should not be taken lightly. My grandfather went in with a broken leg, stayed due to a bladder infection, got C diff, then a respiratory infection and finally died after several miserable weeks.

I don't know how a hospital can bill for problems they are responsible for having caused. If proper procedures are followed, there should be an extremely low incidence of infection to patients, and if there are still high infection rates, then the procedure isn't adequate.

As it is, I view hospitals as the place you go to die, not the place you go to be healed. That said, I'd probably be dead several times over already if not for antibiotics.

I look forward to the day medicine begins adopting things like analytics, AI, and other strategies all other industries adopt to improve quality and reduce cost. The emphasis should be on improving patient outcomes, not protecting the healthcare industry and doctor compensation.

On Brazil there was a typical rule, called Cheque Caução (deposit check), for case of extra expenses due complication for some procedure a patient will be subjected.
In other words, people had to pay in advance for suposed extra costs that migh happen, and in many cases due medical error or improper hospital care against infections.
And there are still efforts on rolling on justice system to bring back the rule of deposit check.

In a emergency of a hospital, when I helped a relative with dengue fever, I saw a nurce "Achoo" in her own hand and then, without clean and disinfect her hands, remover a syringe that was connected in the arm of a patient. I complained with her and she told that for just remove, and not connect, the syringeit itwas ok.
It shows clear how sh...t the profetionals of health systema are in general. A TV report once showed how many doctors exame patient's wounds without proper gloves. And there was a campaingn once to instruct doctors to wash their hands, since a lot of them hadn't the proper habit for this.

Medical field it's a disgrace. A hell... I don't trust even in the doctors of my family (some relatives). For me they are all incompetent or suspects.

Brazil has a problem that Japan was able to fix once they learnt the blood fluke life cycle.

When you said snails I was imagining it would refer about Schistosomiasi, but this disease it's related to poor sanitaion, so suage treatment or suage drains.

Malaria it's more often in Amazon forest.
If the mosquitos survive the burnings...

Medical science don't like poor people. More people die from diseases linked to such things (poor sanitartion) and remote rural locations, than people who die from AIDS and cancer. But researchs for such diseases have very short money. That's why this is called neglected diseases. No one (or almost) cares about... Sad thing.
