I dont really find them odd and like the person above mentioned, it does take forever in the UC i've seen some grotesque stuff there
But i rarely go to the hospital since i never really have anything serious besides minors colds and 24 hours bugs

2004: Snapped my shoulder blade in half. My friend pegged me with a rock when I hit a double at the local BMX track.
2006: Severely sprained wrist. I cased the step up onto my operating table. For some stupid reason, I tried to catch myself when I hit the ground.
2007: Sprained ankle (3rd degree) for the third time that year. The first sprain happened when I got confused at a my local mx track and hit a blind double in fourth instead of third. I landed in the corner and hyper-extended my ankle. I hurt it two more times that season and finally went to the hospital when it really started giving me trouble.
2008: Crushed my T10 and T11 vertebrae while skiing. T9-T12 had to be fused together. I overshot an 80 foot table at Timberline because of an icy inrun. My bindings broke when I hit the ground and I basically landed in a sitting position.
2009: Fractured another vertebrae. Apparently it was an old fracture that I didn't know I had. It has been broken so many times that it will no longer heal without another surgery. I don't know how I originally did it, or when. I think I broke it again when I cartwheeled a 40 foot double.
2011: I found out that I had allergy induced asthma while stacking hay. I don't know why that hay was special but I had a severe asthma attack because of it. My boss couldn't even understand me when I called him to let him know I had to quit early. The nurse told me I shouldn't have driven myself to the hospital. Apparently my blood O2 levels (or something) were nearing the point where I would have passed out. Aside from not being able to breathe well, I felt fine.
2012: Stretched PCL and a few minor fractures in my knee. I gave up motocross after breaking my back. But I got on my friends bike for a few minutes of fun. I cased a sketchy 40 foot table and came down hard on my knee.
2012: Cut the tip of my finger off at work because I am an idiot.
2013: 2nd degree burns on my back and third degree burns on my left hand. My sweatshirt caught on fire when I brushed up against a heater in a hay shed.
2013: Broke a bone in my foot while longboarding.

I think those are all my trips to hospitals. I have had a lot of sprained ankles, a few concussions, and some other minor injuries that weren't worth a hospital bill. I don't like spending time in hospitals, so I avoid them if I can.

A few times for broken bones surgery and once for a really bad fall off my horse. I hate hospitals with a passion, I appreciate what they do and everything but it's an intense phobia after falling I was so scared about going to hospital that the paramedics thought I had a severe head injury and were saying to eachother that I was agitated and that they needed to put me to sleep, and they did! I did have a head injury but not as bad as they thought, just bruising on the brain, and the "agitated" was just me being afraid. I was in intensive care for like a day and a half out cold, and then in a normal ward for a week. There was a hell of a state on my riding helmet so if I hadn't have been wearing it I would have definitely been killed. I was back horse riding 2 1/2 weeks after falling. yeehaa!

Hmm I've been admitted to the hospital only a few times.
In 2005 I had suffered a severe asthma attack and was rushed to the hospital. It was a close one. If my parents weren't around I'd probably be dead.
Once around 2007 I fell on a concrete step and nearly ripped off my upper lip. Apparently it was only hanging on by a little bit of skin. I was sewed back together just fine so it was a pleasant hospital experience.
Last year in 2014 I over exerted myself in the gym and felt dizzy. I continued to workout but then walking to a water fountain I fell and split the flesh on my chin. I went to a sh** local hospital and they sloppily used glue to patch me up because they were lazy bums who refused to stitch so I still have a bad scar.

Hoping to become a surgeon, I may spend much of my life in hospitals.

Stepped on a bumblebee when I was a kid, they needed to clean my foot and lower the swelling.

Busted my elbow driving a cart. Just had to keep it straight for a few weeks though.

Last july, on the 11th I tried to kill myself via wrist cutting. Got stitched. Now I got an ugly ass scar.

And probably many more hospital trips. Pretty young still.

I don't hate hospitals.

What I hate about hospitals are the long wait times

I've been to my hospital 5 times in the last 2 years.
It's usually my family or caseworker taking me there because they think I'm 'at risk'.
The last time I went I escaped and they sent the police after me because I was filed as a missing person.

When I was 14 I lived in the hospital for 6 months, so I'm used to them now.
Not fun. Not a nice place to be. Very boring. Kinda sucks.

I don't have a particular hatred for hospitals, but I don't like them. Then again, the only hospital I've had to stay in was a mental hospital. It's just something that depends on your experiences.
What I do hate are pharmacies.

I don't like hospitals. Luckily for me, I have never had to stay in a hospital. Only time I had to go was when I broke my arm when I was a kid.

I've never been there for myself. It's always for others.

Hospitals are hell. I've stayed over for a week at a time before. You can't even sleep since the nurses come in every hour to wake the patient up to measure vitals. I have no clue how people get well in hospitals. The environment is so sterile and cold, the beds are uncomfortable, everything smells chemically clean, the food is bland and there is little of it.

Cemeteries usually look really nice. I could probably imagine myself strolling through one with nice trees and well-kept gardens. Sometimes I think people should be taken to cemeteries to get well and be taken to hospitals to be buried.

I don't really have any interesting stories on hospitals... but I have a picture to share.



This particular hospital didn't have a fourth floor because four, roughly pronounced (shi) 死 = death. Spooky...

Pretty common in Asian countries. There was a scary movie made about the missing fourth floor. Forbidden Floor or something. You should try to find it and watch it. An elevator behaves strangely at night and someone notices that the time it takes to travel between the 3rd and 5th floors is unusually long, as though there is a hidden floor that simply wasn't possible to get to normally.

I've seen some buildings in the US that don't have a 13th floor. I'm guessing it's the same concept. I was in Japan and never saw a single fourth floor in any elevator.
