We've Come Full Circle. A Full 180* Turnaround.
« on: July 30, 2008, 06:09:50 PM »

Ok, so I sukk at Yogiisms too.

[rant]

So Madolyn broke her toe.  Bent it over in the pool at a water park field trip.

We go in to see the doctor, and to get an x-ray (yeah, I've already had her in the scanner.  That's how I know it's broken.  But the fracture she has is a Salter-Harris type 1 fracture, and a plain film x-ray is still needed at some point.)  With the insurance, I needed to get her seen by her primary, so she can refer to an orthopedist.  I'm quite sure it will need to be reduced and pinned.  Maybe not, but we'll see.

Back to the rant, already in progress.  We see Doccy poo.  Nice lady.  Some sort of Latvian Romanian Czech Lithuanian.  I mean nobody is ever Russian anymore.  Maybe Dolf knows.  So, I pretty much run the appointment, and explain to her what's going on.  She says she'll start on the referral and I say how 'bout getting an x-ray.  Ok she says.

So, we head across the hall to x-ray.  I'm guessing it's her cousin at the desk.  After a few minutes we get checked in, then head back and get the x-ray.  The x-ray tech told me "Take this back up front and hand it to the receptionist."

So I do.  She takes it.  After about 10 minutes of her fiddling with the computer I ask how much longer to we need to wait?  (x-ray is all digital now, I know we're not waiting to see if the films are good or not).

She's clueless.  The x-ray tech comes up and asks what is going on.  The Ruskie tries to explain that were waiting.  Waiting for what?  They're done!  I said, I was told to come back up here, and hand her this paper.
The x-ray tech says "No,  The receptionist back in the pediatric clinic."

 Angry  (That's not what I was told.)

I say  "I'm sorry.  we're having a hard time in this clinic because We Speak ENGLISH!"

Years ago, it used to be the other way around.  Trying to guide people through the hospital or clinic that couldn't hoblay a lick of Englays.  Now the tables have turned completely.

Quarks surrender.

And to the subject at hand...



Once more, we play our dangerous game, a game of chess against our old adversary - The American Hospital Patient. For forty years, your fathers before you and your older brothers played this game and played it well. But today the game is different. We have the advantage.

LOL!  ^  Cool

Don't get me wrong, I'm not anti immigration.  Everyone is welcome here, especially if provides a better place to raise your children.  End war, famine, poverty, oppression, religious persecution, but viva la serial comma.

I was just so befuddled, because at every stop in the joint, I had a harder and harder time understanding what the person was trying to tell me.

So let me understand this. You did an MRI on your daughter's toe before you took her to the doctor. You did a $2000 to $3000 procedure ($300 co-pay on my insurance) and it cost you what? Diddly squat?

*fudge* you and your rant, you deserve it.

Seriously hope Maddy is OK and gets well soon.

LOL  Some people get 20% off their meals, some get cars at cost, I get free radiation!

What a country!


Thanks for the well wishes. Smiley

Seriously though glad you were able to get things going. My work wife's husband went through hell the past several weeks.

He was playing softball and was going into second and decided to slide too late. Hurt both legs bad. Went to the ER. One leg broken at the ankle other ankle sprained. Got into the Ortho a week later and was determined the leg was broken closer to the knee as well and a small break down low and sprained ankle and other ankle was sprained. Scheduled surgery for pins the next Tuesday. On Monday he calls to see what he needs to do and there is no record of his surgery. They schedule it for Wednesday. So 3 weeks or so have gone by and he is in severe pain and looking at 8 more weeks before he can return to work on a limited basis. On a side note he now knows he can get around anywhere by scooting on his ass.

Thanks.  I tell ya, that's a real rant!  I see so many people every day getting caught up, lost, or just screwed by the system.  Like that guy.  It's really sad.

My heart goes out to a lot of people I scan because of scenarios just like you described.  When (and unfortunately "if" ) they ever can get in.

Other people not so much.  They're just *bunghole*s.   Lawyers typically.  Or bike riding coders, but that's a whole 'nother deal.

I've known a couple who've torn hammies running out grounders. Seriously, dudes, it's *goshdarn* softball. If you don't have a keg on 1st and 3rd, there's really no point.

Topic: Yes.   Wink  Getting an appointment now will be fodder for an entirely different rant!  Angry

Equally good topic:  I hung up my cleats years ago.  Broke my thumb.  Needed pinning.  That's how I'm an expert.  Everything can be fixed with a good pinning.  I agree with spacey.  Got too competitive(read:  dude you're ought of high school, you sucked then, you suck now, this ain't MLB, and it ain't even triple A Rochester.  Quit being so anal, and you look like a douch backing out of the box.  Corey.)  Keg on 1st and 3rd, or I'm not interested.

So how many times did Maddie have to go through the machine before you scanned the correct toe?
