Last Thursday at 6:50 PM my 2 year old daughter fell down the basement stairs and hit her head pretty hard. We got to the hospital at 7:05 pm, first nurse saw her at 7:15, she was admitted and at her room by 7:25, doctor saw her at 7:45, Dr. ordered X-ray, In radiology room by 8 pm, X-ray taken at 8:10, back at the room at 8:15, x-ray results came at 8:25, Dr. reviewed the X-rays at 8:35. Dr concluded everything looked ok but wanted to keep her for observation. For the next 3 hours we had a few visits by the nurses, two stuffed animals given to my daughter and a final visit by the Dr. W finally went home knowing everything was OK.
How much did I have to pay for all of this? 15 dollars for parking.
Some people complain about universal health care here in Canada, but when sh**t hits the fan, I would rather be here than anywhere else in the world.
THANK YOU Health Care professionals and thank you Canadians for having the courage of keeping alive and well a health care systems accessible to everyone.
