Hospital No Waiting Room

- EvilGentleman - Friday, February 10th, 2006 : goo

[previous] :: [next]

In March , I had to go to for surgery. The day after the surgery (March 30), I walked past the at 8AM and saw this.

This happened at the Lakeshore General in , . For the last few years, all I have heard about the hospital system is how horrible the waiting times are, always at least 4 hours, and sometimes as much as 18 hours. This kind of makes me wonder how much of this was and how much was . I have never had to wait more than 45 minutes in this hospital.

As near as I can make out it says, "To be seen in the emergency room, please -- --- ----- ----" Guess I shoulda used the flash. I was still groggy from getting my gall bladder ripped out, wasn't thinking too clearly.

Catherine Penfold-Waxman: 10th Feb 2006 - 20:58 GMT

Why did they remove your gall bladder? Did you get to see it after they took it out? I kept my tonsils for 13 years until I stupidly left them with my bother when I came to New York. He instantly threw them out. My dream was to have them made into a keyring, sadly unrealised.

didja get to keep your gall bladder? hehehe ;)

That ain't no catnip inside Stella's toy mouse...

It is really hard to get to keep anything in Quebec these days. My son did not even get his tooth back from the dentist, cuz it was considered biological waste once it was no longer attached to him. I have heard the only exception to this rule is in the case of aborted or miscarried fetuses, and even then, it is only to be released to an undertaker.

gotta love it.

My wife and I have since been back and have experienced 6 or 7-hour waits (2 hours for triage, and 3 to see an actual doctor, and finally, another hour or two for the doctor to wander back with a diagnosis)

Sirhcbre: 4th Sep 2006 - 04:15 GMT

I had to wait in outpatience for about 9 hours once. ironically, the nurs said she figured my chest pains were probably a result of my galbladder going on the fritz. it turned out I was drinking too much apple juice (I wasn't used to city water) so there was too much acid in my stomach.
