My dad spent his entire adult life in them, but I hate them.

    Hospitals killed my brother with a massive infection and my sister with the H1N1 vaccine even though she had a major heart condition. I am never going to the hospital.

      and no one will ever be held accountable.
      My wife has been waiting 2 years now for surgery for a hernia which was probably caused by c-sections.
      Yet I could get intestinal surgery for my cat within 3 days.
      Canada sucks if you need healthcare.

    Hospitals are filled with doctors, nurses, staff, sick people struggling to survive, and visitors too. Best not to linger to long in a hospital because it’s also a biohazard environment.

    Reminds me of Mike Harris preparing for an Ontario election and having to decide whether to invest in hospitals or road infrastructure. He plowed money into highways and neglected the hospitals… and won the next election handily. The lesson? Car commuters vote; sick people don’t.

      dumbest comment so far, and it’s just 8:24am Monday morning.
      Larry needs more coffee.

        Larry has many more where that one came from.

    I hate hospitals too. But I’m always in awe of healers like your father. Having lost both my parents recently , I was impressed with the professionalism and compassion they received from their doctors and nurses. To do that job, and not become cold and hard, shows a strength of character few possess.

    As a former nurse, I can see how some people might find hospitals not exactly their cup of tea……but I suspect it has more to do with lazy incompetent nurses, BScN nurses who don’t want to get their hands dirty, and uncaring physicians who entered the profession more for prestige and pay than actually wanting to care for their fellow human beings. More importantly, woefully underpaid(at least in BC who work for Sodexo or Aramark) support staff, who earn slightly more than minimum wage to keep the hospital clean, and the patients fed aren’t trained nearly well enough.
    When support services in BC hospitals were being privatized, I remember a BC Cabinet minister calling the cleaning staff in hospitals “toilet cleaners” and how they really only deserved minimum wage……well I saw those “toilet cleaners” get a room spotlessly clean in 15 minutes when we needed a bed desperately, and I saw how those middle aged ladies were sweating afterwards…..
    Having well paid, competent support staff allowed me to do my job better, and we certainly didn’t have the nosocomial infections and bed sores that seem to be so prevalent in hospitals today….
    We need to go back to the days of hospital trained nurses, and unionized support staff who can earn a living wage.
    So endeth my rant….

    My special needs son almost died in a hospital after contracting bacterial meningitis in his brain. My husband got a nasty infection after lengthy shoulder surgery and had to have the surgery again.

    But, unfortunately, we need hospitals.

    Sunnybrook did its best last Friday for my daughter. A concussion, not a brain bleed and we were out in under four hours.
