The waiting room
Having worked in a hospital for some time. I still can’t figure out why patients don’t get seen on time particularly in a clinic setting! After all the time slot is allocated to you. So whether you’re early, on time or late you just don’t win – well perhaps the late comer wins in a warped way!
After attending a clinic today with my daughter I am led to believe that hospital staff have taken it upon themselves to improve our social skills by getting us acquainted with fellow waiting room occupants. Everybody sits there with the common goal of waiting for your name or number to be called. The look on people’s faces when their turn finally crawls around is priceless. A bit like winning the waiting room lottery.
