Hospitals are places that operate on their own imperatives. For example, a preliminary sleep study was being performed on me Wednesday night. There was a big, honking sign on my door that said, quite clearly "Sleep study in progress. Do not awaken this patient!" which in no way deterred a tech from entering my room, awakening me, removing my telemetry connection and wanting to draw additional blood! I told her that I didn't trust someone who clearly couldn't read to perform that task! She was most offended.
Mary Washington Hospital in Fredericksburg, Virginia is a very lovely hospital, if you have to be in a hospital. The staff is friendly and pleasant. They have room service! Breakfast is available 24/7 - just like Denny's! Their chicken caesar salad is exceptional! They are warm and caring. They do really like to wake people from restful slumber for their little tests and vampire behavior. They honestly do seem to give a rat's eardrum about how their patients are feeling.
I don't ever want to go back there! Despite the kindness shown. I missed my cat!
