Quoting Chuck Bass:" When they called to cancel, they should have already had another appointment in mind for you. They didn't want to reschedule you on the phone right then? Thats really weird"
Exactly. It was just so unprofessional to me. Of course a woman in labor and giving birth is more important, but just the fact that they're trying to tell me there is only ONE medically trained staff member who is qualified to look at my vagina and work US equipment in this ENTIRE hospital is just ridiculous. During business hours, no less. God forbid I'm ready to deliver at the same time another woman is, only one of us would have the doctor.
If I was getting private care, sure, completely understandable. But this is Kaiser fricking Permanente. I am actually astounded not a single soul, not a nurse or doctor on call could work the damn machine to tell me if baby is heads down or not and to deal with my bitching about intolerable heartburn.
And yeah, I figured they'd reschedule me, but she actually told me they needed at least a 24 hour notice to schedule me a new appt. An hour before my appt. And that they would call me back to set it up.
This is the last incident with Kaiser I can deal with. They make me want to rip my hair out.
And the icing on the cake, McDonald's tried to charge me a quarter for BBQ sauce today. Furreal.
