Well That's Different #9: Medical Practice

While I was in Yangshuo I saw something that I don't think you are ever likely to see in England or America.
A young couple with a baby were walking along a crowded street. They had clearly come from the hospital. This was eveident because the woman was carrying the baby which had a tube taped into a vein while the man walked beside her with his arm held high in the air carrying a bag of what looked like saline drip into which the other end of the tube was fixed.

I know from personal experience that English hospitals sometimes send people home before they are fully recovered but I've never seen that before.
