I'd Rather See the Vet!

Hubby is doing much, much better. thank you to everyone for your thoughts and well wishes! They are greatly appreciated!
Hubby fell in the driveway, landed hard on an uneven edge of concrete and broke his femur close to his hip. 
I am grateful to the rapid response of the EMTs.
I am grateful for the wonderful, compassionate care given in the Emergency Room.
I am ever so grateful for the fabulous orthopedic surgeon who performed the surgery.
I am grateful for the care given by the caring, compassionate nurses.

I won't mention the nurses who acted like they were being put-out because they had to see to the needs of a patient. (SHAME ON YOU!)
I won't mention the over-zealous insurance rep who was a royal pain in the tush for the duration of the hospital stay and who (IMO) badgered the patient when the patient wasn't even in the right frame of mind to make a decision.. (SHAME ON YOU!)

"If a person is in the medical profession to make a lot of money, then they are in the wrong line of work! A person should pursue a medical career because they want to help people." 
(a paraphrased quote I recently heard on tv)

Glad you ran into good people and the others have to live with themselves which is good punishment.
Stay warm and cozy!

I'm glad Hubby is doing better! Yes, there are some people who just shouldn't work in the medical field. Unfortunately there seem to be a lot of them!

Glad to hear things are improving! You are right to focus on the good, caring professionals you dealt with. But there always seems to be a couple pains in the ass too, doesn't there?

There's always a few bad apples in every hospital, sorry you guys had to deal with that.

I'm very glad though, that for the most part, your hubby was well cared for and is doing better!
