The Joke!

I received this joke in my email. At first I thought maybe they were talking about, Canada v.s US. Then, I thought... Maybe they are talking about Saskatchewan and another province... as Saskatchewan has horrid wait times!!!!! But read and you shall find out what this is all about!!

The Joke:

Boy, if this doesn't hit the nail on the old head, I don't know what does!

Two patients limp into two different medical clinics with the same complaint. Both have trouble walking and appear to require a hip replacement.

The FIRST patient is examined within the hour, is x-rayed the same day and has a time booked for surgery the following week.

The SECOND sees his family doctor after waiting 3 weeks for an appointment, then waits 8 weeks to see a specialist, then gets an x-ray, which isn't reviewed for another week and finally has his surgery scheduled for a month from then.

Why the different treatment for the two patients? The FIRST is a Golden Retriever. The SECOND is a Senior Citizen. Next time take me to a vet !!!

Now see, We need more trained Medical Professionals for people. We need to get something to shorten them waiting lines..

Food for thought! (especially for those of us going to the polls Nov.7)
