Why did you go to the hospital? Do you like the ambience of hospitals?

I have been to the hospital five times. I had four surgerys and a baby. Each time I was there a few days.

i've been in and out of the hospital lately for check-ups. i have to visit my doctor frequently because i am into a work up. i haven't stayed in the hospital yet that i am the patient. the last time i went there was when my husband was operated. i like the hospital, depending on the type of it. there are some hospitals that don't smell like one and some has this odor that even if your already far from here you still smell the "hospital odor".

Thank God that I've only been there twice in my entire life. This is both to deliver my two children. I like the hospital which I'd stayed because the room is big and nice with nice decor too. The services rendered by te hospital staffs are good too. If given a choice, I would still go back to the same hospital if need be.

I have been to the hospital when I got stiches, when I got my tonsils and adnoids removed, and when I gave birth to my son. I usually have gone to Provena Mercy Center in the past, because the service is excellent. When I had my son, I was well taken care of by the staff and by my midwife. I didn't feel the hospital staff was intrusive or detached, which doesn't help the patient to relax. As long as the hospital doesn't resemble a morgue via it being cold, metal, and white, I am good. I am even better with a few homely decorations and items that obviously help the patient to relax more.

my last few experiences at the hospital have been a fight with cancer so it has been horrible. i have been a little to distracted to give a true sense of what the ambiance of the scene was. i will try to focus on that when i go back, next month lol. that might make the trip there a little better, take my mind off the real reason i am there!!

my mom told me that when i was about two years old, i would often be confined in a hospital. but i don't remember them really.. so, i don't count them. i've recently been confined to the hospital last january. i was having a very terrible headache. my head seemed to be pulsating for more than 24 hours already and i don't really have migraine. i stayed for about four days. i don't really like the ambiance. but i don't it's a great way for me to rest since as my doctor said, i was just in a lot of stress and i need to have a full bed rest.

I hate hospitals and try to avoid them if at all possible. The cold temperature, the smell, the sounds, and the sterile environment all make me very uncomfortable.
