In Six Words, What's Your Story About the Hospital Discharge?

My father was in the hospital recently and discharged home last Monday. (He and my mom live in an apartment about 10 minutes from me.)

With every hospitalization comes a new discharge experience. This time, my dad was discharged with a prescription for new med that cost $1,000 and which insurance wouldn't cover. The pharmacist wouldn't fill it so my dad had to wait a few days for the doctor to prescribe a different med.

The hospital discharge process never ceases to amaze me. The process, which I can only describe as inefficient and clunky, often leads to more work for us.

For this six-word story, let's write about the hospital discharge process. Share as many stories as you'd like in our comments section, below. Share a story by July 6 for a chance to win a free registration to our summer school classes, which take place during the week of August 7, 2017. I'll announce the random winner who gets a free seat in our six classes which provide a break from caregiving stress on July 7.
