How Health Care is Supposed to Work
Mar 6, 2013

Went to the hospital for some tests today. Since I am generally healthy, and have had the good fortune to have little to do with the health care system, I wasn't quite sure what the time frame was going to work out to.

I went prepared for the worst, with a couple of books loaded onto my tablet and a pocket full of granola bars.

Got to the hospital about 10 minutes before I was actually scheduled to be there, and was checked in with no wait. Got directions for where in the complex I was supposed to go, and wandered into the lab a full half hour before my appointment. I checked in, and then settled down to read.

About 2 pages later, I was called into the testing room where two procedures took place, and then across the hall to another room for another procedure. I was out the door 10 minutes before my appointment time.

Also, this was done at no direct cost to me. I just had to show my health card at admitting.

The Canadian health care system seems to be alive and well, and taking care of business in a fast and friendly fashion.
