What do you hate most about hospitals?
I've been sitting with my husband for two days now at the hospital and I think I hate the fact it is freezing cold most. What about you?
There is a sterile, kind of chemical smell I can't stand that is pervasive in every hospital I've ever been in. Also the florescent lighting irritates me. Hope your husband gets well soon!
Firstly, I am so sorry to hear about your hubby. My thoughts are with you both.
The thing I hate most about hospitals is that medication and the routine checks -blood pressure, blood drawing, ect. - are scheduled to what is convenient for the staff, not the patients. I am sure this is out of necessity, but when they wake up a patient up 3AM to take blood and again at 4AM to take blood pressure, then 7AM to dole out meds, I cannot see how this contributes positively to a patient getting rest.
Unless one MUST positively, absolutely, be hospitalized for "life-saving" cause or reason.......I say "AVOID," them !! Just in the last year, I personally know 3 people who have gone to the Hospital for one thing or another....and picked up ILLNESS from the GERMS that breed especially rampant in HOSPITALS.... A friend of mine did not die of his cancer.......he died due to MRSA.....which he picked up during his last visit to the Hospital. I hate pretty much everything about hospitals.....we should all, at least be LEARY of them. It's getting worse, rather than better. WHY? Take a guess. The answer is the same answer for practically all of business and society......MONEY.
I agree with what @ChristinS said about the chemical smell. It's also really quiet like a library except when the emergency sounds go off. My prayers are to you and your husband.

Why do people use hospitals?With self help options such as first aid, ambulatory prehospital care, clinics and many others. Why do you think people still use hospitals?

For or against?Personally, I hate the idea. The government needs to stay out of my personal life. I like my freedom of choice.

Do you think hospitals should give away formula to women who have just given birth?
