A good friend of mine just suffered a very bad car accident. He fell asleep on his hour and a half commute home from work, and rolled his car across the highway.
He suffered some pretty bad wounds to his legs and feet, and has been in the trauma ward for 6 days now. The cost for his stay in the trauma ward is just a little over 18K a night, yea that no bull, eighteen thousand dollars a fucking night just for the room. Meds and care cost extra.
His stay is going to end totaling well over 100K, not counting the surgerys he needed to put his ankle back together. And that is only because he refused the ambulance, and made his wife come pick him up off the side of the road and take him to the university hospital, or else he would owe another 20K in transportation bills.
Anyone want to ask me my opinion of our health care system?
Anyway, sorry for the rant. I just hate seeing good people getting screwed by the system, after they have clearly paid their dues.
All good vibes would be appreciated.
Thank you in advance.
