I've seen hospitals charge crazy amounts for crazy things.
It's good. Sorry if you thought I was singling you out. It wasn't my intent but I could see how it could be taken that way.
As for the costs, you're absolutely right. When I worked in the hospital, I couldn't believe the cost of charges from my department. I wasn't a highly paid person, but for me to enter a room for 30 seconds and do a simple task would cost the patient quite a bit of money. Have me do it for 10 patients on each floor and I would bring in a load of money for them.
While I don't miss the job, I miss some of the excitement that went with it and the knowledge that I helped someone.
