I was taking a day off from writing. I was gonna do nothing, but maybe read a bit. Yah Right. I read a friend’s blog post. I left a reply to that friend. This is my reply.
Sorry I do not have any questions about the hospital, but do need to know more about the chair room. I have never heard of such a thing(It’s been 2 years since I was last in hospital).
Who pays for it? If the insurance pays, how is it billed to them? Who originally thought this “room” was a good idea? Is it just the hospital you went to that has it or are there many similar ones across the country? Could you have left if you chose to? I’m sure if I thought longer I could come up with many more questions, but right now I just have 1 left. Well It is more of a statement.
There is something seriously wrong with the mental health system in this country if you spent 2 days in a chair because there was no bed available to you. I’m not saying they need more beds, I am saying they need to figure out a way to need less beds. Obviously something is not working somewhere. And don’t look to other countries for answers. Their systems are different but just as messed up. I think they need to listen to us. The ones who need the beds.
I was taking a day off from writing and look at me go. Thank you Lily. I just might have to go back to my blog and vent about this. Oh look I already did vent 😀
I hope you have as good a day as you are capable of having.
I kind of have the feeling this is not going to be the end of me talking about “the chair room” and just think I wanted to get drunk and forget today was even happening.
Take that depressive brain!!!! I beat you today!!!!
