hamster care
 n.— «One might wonder why it is necessary to pay a bounty to get a doctor to call you back. The answer is that under the watchful eye of managed care and insurance companies, the quality of care has gotten so awful that doctors refer to it as “hamster care.” Only those patients who pay more are going to get treated by the “concierge” doctors who get off the daily treadmill and practice good medicine.» —“Good health care should not be only for wealthy” by Arthur Caplan Witchita Eagle (Kan.) July 7, 2004.
