second visit…

on my second visit to the orthopedic doctor at Denver Health, i was more at ease… i was anxious to see what my wrist was feeling like and how much longer i would be one-handed for… i knew the routine of how to check-in and what it was gonna cost and all the stupid details… i found myself looking around and letting my mind wander a bit… always a bad thing to allow a person to use their brain in a hospital… haha… you want them scared and controlled… keep them in place…

while i was checking in, i couldn’t help but realize that the women behind the counter were all overweight… i understand that they sit behind a computer all day… i understand that they help a lot of people throughout the day (as they did for me)… but i could not understand how we were in a place that helps people get healthy/better, and these women were wasting away…

i know how hard it can be to finish up with work and force yourself to go to the gym or be active… you feel exhausted… chilling at home is so comfortable and easy… but that is not the deal you signed when you were born… these ladies at the hospital, as well as many people around the US, need to use their health to better themselves… the hospital should be encouraging their employees to set a good example for the rest of us…

so, if this hospital claims that they help people live better lives, they should help their employees do just that… the hospital should have its own workout facility… the people behind the desk should be required to use it during their shift… they should also be compensated for their effort to stay in good health… their eating habits should also be reviewed and adjusted…

i understand that the hospital cannot force employees to live a certain way… but they should explain to their staff that they have an example to display to the people that come into the hospital…

i have a problem with not practicing what you preach… there are bigger problems in our healthcare industry, but i thought it’d be fun to pick out a smaller detail and hate on it…

peace and noLove…
