I thought it was only my mother but I soon saw that they did this to all those that arrived. Down computers again? They just spent a bundle remodeling their facilities maybe they should of spent part of it on a new computer system?
Mother was scheduled for a CT and had to fast since 10:00 p.m. last night but she started at 8:00 p.m. Her appointment was for 9:30 a.m. but of course she was not called until 10:45 a.m. My mother is elderly and started feeling bad early this morning as she had to drink that white chalk like substance. She was left to fast for 14 hours 45 minutes but it wasn't until we got home at noon that she was able to finally eat something. What is wrong with this picture?
They called her number and I went to the front desk and the technician asked me "why I had not given them the medications mother takes"...I told her "because you did not ask me"...to which she replied " Yes, I did"...I wanted to punch her because she was calling me a liar and where was she going to write it? They did not have her paperwork!
As if that was not enough, earlier after I had dropped mother off in the front door I went to park the car. Was making my way back to the hospital when I decided to stop and take a picture of the entrance. That is when I noticed this well dressed lady with her fancy purse and laptop bag looking at me. She purposely stopped and waited for me.
She asked me what news media I was with because she was not aware of anyone coming to take pictures. I was going to have a cow if this woman told me that I could not take a picture of the outside of a PUBLIC hospital !!!
She was polite but very inquisitive and prying....you all know how I feel about prying strangers...GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR! I wanted so bad to tell her the article I was photographing for was going to appear in the Terlingua Dreams Times! Was she perhaps the Public Relations Director for the hospital? Who knows, who cares....she was a PIA!
So as you can see...it was not the best of days.
Good night. May you all have Terlingua Dreams.
