How much flammable alcohol did they cover the poor woman in?!? And why couldn't they smother the flames?

Ahh the high quality of universal healthcare systems. As a comparison they spend all of 1.7% of gdp on healthcare. The US is closer to 17.7%. The people of Romania (like many countries with socialized healthcare) are trying to get by on a budget that is one tenth what we have access to in America. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Healthcare_in_Romania

I'm sure this happened to Kenny when they accidentally replaced his heart with a baked potato.

So very sad for everyone involved. This is why time must be spent walking through tasks before they are actually done so that it is possible to identify problems before they happen. Training, practice, and retraining needs to be a part of civil life. It simply is not a disposable cost to be covered by insurance. The consequences in the real world of life and death are too high to ignore or treat as an acceptable cost risk..
