The Thursday Thirteen

Thirteen Things about Hospitals

In honor of Glenn's 24 hour stay in the hospital, I thought I'd put out a list of my observations.
1. No one likes them unless they are delivering a baby.
2. Nursing has a rediculous amount of ick factor to it.
3. Cafeteria food at hospitals is borderline awful.
4. In spite of this the employees seem to eat it.
5. The ER Waiting room is full of unusual people 24 hours a day.
6. You can feel like you are dying but only 'Triage' can get you a room.
7. There is never enough parking.
8. Air mattresses sound like jet engines preparing for takeoff and are hard to sleep on.
9. Hospital gowns were never meant to actually cover anything!
10. You must ride in a wheelchair if you have been a patient, you can't walk out ever!
11. Stickers are available in the ER
12. If an alarm goes off on a piece of equipment in your room, it will take forever for a nurse to come shut it down.
13. When you are ready to go home, it takes a long time to get them to release you!

What is it with hospitals with no parking? Are they somehow surprised that people actually want to come there? Grrr...
