FU Hospital on the Harbour View

Posted on Thu, Feb 26, 2009 at 7:18 AM

I was just going to tack this on to the other hospital bitch but I started ranting.

We had to go to the hospital near the NSCC(a.k.a. you might as well die at home) for my husband. We got in in about 2 hours, because a very very old man with a concussion kept trying to get out of his wheelchair to help him get out of my lap.

I wanted to belt the fucking triage nurse. I get there's no beds, and that girl over there has a bloody banana bag, but if he's screaming and hyperventilating when we come in, don't nod and tell me in a chipper voice, okay! When I come back and tell you he's started vomiting again, don't do that again. When I tell you he can't walk any more, DON'T DO IT AGAIN. Thanks for coming out after he dropped to the floor and I slid under him on the linoleum so he wasn't faceplanting next to the bathrooms, and after that nice old man yelled 6-7 times for help(and fuck you, his wife, for telling him to "leave the man alone". You'd probably ignore someone in trouble for it not being your business).

When we come in a second time after going home for 20 minutes and he gets worse, don't tell me it's fucking normal that he's now puking up blood and has actually faceplanted in the ladies toilet and is just slobbering on the floor. In short, FUCK YOU.

THANK YOU to the two sweetheart nurses who arranged his ultrasound(ulcer, thank God). Thank you for finding him a tooth brush and helping him brush his hair before his appointment upstairs since it looked horrible. And thankyou to the sweet young doctor who gently tapped me awake after I fell asleep on the wall sitting up and made me go home to bed. You good ones make up for a lot, I just wish you'd stop sticking the assholes out front.
