The Canadian Experience With Government Health Care
As a citizen of Canada living only with our socialized medical system I can tell you there are plenty of people refused care.

In Canada, approximately 30% of health care spending is private spending… [in large part because the] Canadian system… does not include dental, vision, and prescription drug coverage…

and…

The Canadian single-payer regime subjects thousands of patients to life-threatening delays for treatment… the typical patient in need of specialist treatment last year waited 21.2 weeks after referral from a general practitioner — a record high.  In 1993 [before Canada went socialist in healthcare], the median wait time was less than half that figure — 9.3 weeks…  Delays can even prove fatal.  Long waits have contributed to the deaths of more than 44,000 Canadian women in the past two decades…  Many patients would gladly pay extra to receive care more quickly.  But British Columbian law makes it effectively impossible to do so…  [As if that weren’t enough… t]he average cost [for those lengthy waits, sometimes leading to patient deaths] is about $13,000 per [Canadian] household per year.

The public health care system in Canada has a waitlist in every province and surgery dates are often cancelled or bumped due to a more urgent case arising or a shortage of beds being available.

Surgery wait times for deadly ovarian, cervical and breast cancers in Quebec are three times longer than government benchmarks, leading some desperate patients to [come to the U.S. — pre-implementation of Obamacare] for an operating room…  The latest figures from the provincial government show that over a span of nearly 11 months, 7,780 patients in the Montreal area waited six months or longer for day surgeries, while another 2,957 waited for six months or longer for operations that required hospitalization.

It is widely acknowledged that the nursing shortage has negatively impacted quality practice and patient/resident/client care.  Bed closures due to lack of staff often result in overcrowding: a situation in which demand for service exceeds the ability to provide care within a reasonable time and in an appropriate environment.
