Yuk, huge vectors governed by liability rather than medicine.

I'm relatively old in this crowd and have had WAY too many hospital stays. Over the last 8 years I have probably been in the hospital 2-3 times a year.
I'm an extreme case.
STOP SMOKING NOW! DO NOT SMOKE OR YOUR FUTURE COULD BE LIKE MINE.

I had 2 bypass surgeries on my left femoral artery. I almost died after a bleed out where I lost 4.5 to 5 pints of blood. Smoking caused this.
Due to the lack of blood flow my foot nerved were destroyed and in pain and required medication. I cut myself on the foot and it got infected.

I got something called Osteomyelitis, its a chronic bone infection that can be nearly impossible to get rid of. I had multiple partial amputations to the foot but the infection kept coming back.

Then I discovered I had early stage bladder cancer. DON'T SMOKE. IT CAUSES BLADDER CANCER. I was a 2 pack a day smoker but I quit after my first bypass. Funny how that works. We got it cut out with no return in 3 years now.

This July 3rd I had my left foot and most of my calf amputated. The infection was raging and the pain was too much despite plenty of prescribed narcotics. I couldn't live like that anymore.

I now have a nice carbon fiber and titanium leg/foot thanks to Blue Cross. There is still pain but not as much as there used to be. Some days are better than others but I'm glad its gone, the infection cannot spread any more and hopefully I wont need to see the inside of a hospital unless I'm visiting a friend. I can ride a motorcycle again and do most things. I lost a great job I enjoyed as a Construction Inspector for the Army Corps of Engineers. You cant walk through mud or walk on roofs with a bad leg or a prosthesis.

Tough story. That's how things go sometimes. The moral of the story is DON'T SMOKE. IT KILLS PEOPLE. NO KIDDING!
I used to joke that I would only buy the packs that did it would affect pregnancy's. No problem for a guy. Yeah right.
Its your life but I promise you one day, if you smoke you will pay the piper. Quit now, the life you save will be your own.

I'm actually really healthy so I don't go to the hospital too often. My parents are Asian, so they're pretty into traditional medicine and healing at home kind of thing. They don't really trust doctors with everything, despite that I'm still headin' to med school soon, lawl. Anyway, I've only been admitted into the hospital once for a broken ankle two years ago. About the overall atmosphere, I don't mind it there. People always tell me about how hospitals remind them of sickness, death, and dying. To me, it's about perspective because babies are also born at hospitals. Children go there to get better. It's like all the cycles of life situated in one place. Birth, death, life, sickness, hope, and yeah. I don't mind it. Plus, I don't really mind getting shots and stuff. I give blood regularly, so needles and blood don't faze me, haha.

I went to a hospitals when I was kid. I broke a leg and dislocated my shoulder. Now, that I'm older I don't need one so I would visit a family member whenever I can. What I dislikes are the needles and the elevators. I get nausea whenever I have to take the elevator.

I've been to hospitals a lot and they frighten me. The only news I've ever gotten while in one is someone is going to die. My dad was just there last week and he was diagnosed with cancer. They say he doesn't have long to live but I pray every day that he will make it through. Please help my dad by clicking http://www.savewalterwhite.com/ . Father, husband, and teacher thank you CR members for your support through this hard time for my family.

Been a few times to check in on granny. ALWAYS wanted to work in one. The only thing I hate is the stench of the food, which I think is mainly from the instant mashed potatoes. Disgusting.

I don't mind them... They help the people!

but... I don't like the EMERGENCY or urgent care here in America....

takes them hours to see you... when they do finally see you, you feel as though you have already healed yourself.... I guess, they just see you when you're either having a shortness of breath, bleeding profusely, heart attack, having a seizure (maybe fainting).... well anything that's like a fever, stomach ache.... be prepared to stay very late...

Oh, yeah, I was hospitalized for I dunno 2 weeks when I was young.... Bronchitis... ^_^;;
