My mother was recently rushed to the hospital in an ambulance due to a severe case of pneumonia. She is 80 years old and for awhile there – there was a question as to if she would make it. She is back at home now and doing better. I really appreciate the kind words that I recieved from many of you.
While in the Emergency Room – I was astounded by the collection of people there with a multitude or problems – some serious, some not so. The waiting room was absolutely packed and there were people actually sitting on the floor in the halls. I do not make it a habit to go to the hospital – but the lack of efficiency was astounding. Now – before doctors and nurses start emailing me and leaving negative comments – I am not placing blame here on the hospital. This post really is not meant to discuss the “why’s” – but to point out the problem.
The evening that my mom went to the hospital was just like any other evening. As I sat in the ER waiting room looking at sick babies, sick elderly people, as well as people that just had a cough – I thought to myself that if there was any kind of mass disaster – there would be lines going out the door and no way for any medical center to respond as needed. I have every intention of staying away from any medical facility if TSHTF. I am hoping to develop a relationship with someone in the medical treatment field – a nurse or doctor – to possibly include in a survival group. After this most recent experience – I see this being important more now than ever before.
Maybe my wife would be wiling to go to nursing school.
