well maybe things are better there i waited two years in oshawa
Out of curiosity, what were the circumstances behind that immense wait for the MRI?
our emergency rooms are a nightmare
One of big reasons for this in your area (and pretty much all areas) is that the public has been using ER's for the most basic of medical checks because they either don't have a family GP or they don't want to go to the walk-in clinics. It's too bad people didn't use this facility for what it was intended and that is emergency medical care.
I can remember a number of years ago going to visit a very sick friend in a Toronto hospital and I had to go through the ER dept where he was waiting for a bed. I overheard a mother and her 12 year old daughter speaking to one of the nurses ....the daughter had a bit of a sore throat!!!!
harry i'm glad you can get things done quickly but things are not the same all over ontario
I wish that were true all of the time but it isn't. Fortunately, because we know the system from Marg's working days, we can bypass some of the nonsense. But I do get tired of of having to prod people to do their jobs in some cases....it's a delicate balance...complain too much and they make you wait longer!
