Thanks for the reminder to keep our eyes focused forward, and on what has been accomplished instead of agonizing over lost opportunities, and where we've been. That's why the windshield is so big and the rear view mirror so small.


Electric doors would be nice, but I guess they do cost... probably less than a building, but that's not why I'm commenting. Something that would not be costly would be a little more effort by whomever is in charge of the maintenance of the sidewalks and curb areas in the circle of the hospital. I had the pleasure of taking a discharged patient whom just had OP foot surgery to the circle on the day of our incredible ice and snow storm. Of course the weather was inclement all day, but how difficult would it have been for a person to be assigned to keep the area clear of ice, snow and slush for the day of OP surgery. It's not like we have this kind of weather everyday. The ramp was "shoveled" to no more than a narrow path. The wheelchair was wider than the shoveled area. The curb was all ice, snow and watery slush. I could not get the wheelchair even close to the curb. I assisted the patient while she hobbled on one foot with crutches through the hazardous ice to her awaiting ride. It was not nice. Did I mention that all the while, we both were getting saturated with the cold wet freezing rain? You said that everything is about the patient. I'm sure this patient did not appreciate this. Can we do better?
