It's actually my father, as mentioned below, who is on a hospital adventure with his knee replacement surgery. I have just been visiting. With all the brouhaha over our local and/versus regional health services, it has been interesting to visit Royal Inland over the past few days.
First, the physical structures in our hospital seem to be showing their age. I noticed wear and tear in the wards, masking tape directioals arrows, and a lot of stuff parked in hallways. I am not sure how this impacts the quality of care, though, as the nurses and doctors seem excellent and caring.
The parking maching for the parkade is not winning a lot of friends. I am not sure how new the system is, but most of the people waiting in line with me were really grumbling. I personally found the machines not too bad but then I am a bit of a geek.
