Hospital Experience

By Dave Hanks

My wife was in the hospital for a procedure that was to be 2 days at the most. She was in for six! It was very tiring for her and me both. I was frustrated and became a bit angry. I kept the words to myself. Perhaps they could read my demeanor.

It made me believe the statement that 10 percent of a working force are responsible for 90 percent of the positive things accomplished. Many of the other 90 percent seemed inefficient - lacking common sense, not really listening to problems, and unable to do the simplest of things without direction from above.

Going on extended stay in the hospital to make one well, is like sending someone to prison to make him change his ways. He will usually come out a harden criminal, and the patient just gets weaker until they can get back home to recover!
