You'd better not have the opportunity... I've been there once for fever overnight (38~39C, no matter what medicine I took it just didn't heal). Me and my wife waited 3 hours to see a resident doctor who spent less than 3 minutes telling me I got a cold and writing me a prescription I gotta get the medcine at any drug store. No medicine, no injection, no what so ever.
You'd bet there are more advanced medical devices in Canada than those back home in China. On the other hand, you gotta bear this in your mind, doctors, nurses or the whole medical system back in China are more caring and merciful. While medical practioners here in Canada are among the richest group of people, whom the government has to restrict / count their lenghth of practice time, it's these group of guys and gals that have been participating different protests or even strike to urge the raise on their pay-checks from the government. Sometime, they just gotta spend more time on vacation than wandering in the hospital corridors. To clarify, I'm not trying to point at this tiny group as the cause of the less efficiency of Canadian medical system, they're part of the problems themselves. The system has been so well developed that they're not rewarded / compensated in accordance with their effort, their contribution or their delivery, but all determined at the moment s/he stepped into the gate of medical schools.
So do lawyers; so do our politicians. This is a developed system, within a developed society, in a developed country. Welcome to Canada! To me personally this is no more than another piffall of capitalism. I bet our generation has all read thru such tales like pouring milk into the sink.
Unfortunately, the reality is our counterpart back in China has been resembling into sort of a similarity. Let's just wish / pray things won't turn so robotic. Otherwise, sooner or later, you gonna learn news alike of patients dying due to unendurable long hour waiting, no matter if it's released by the communist government. That'd be another risk people gotta take to capitalize in China.＜本文发表于: 相约加拿大:枫下论坛 www.rolia.net/f ＞
