My dad had open heart surgery last week, and my mother over heard one gentleman say to a nurse" I'm glad I'm Canadian", as if this surgery was done in the USA, I'd of lost everything. SO here is my qeustion, around how much would it have cost my Dad in the US?
Open heart surgery ( 6 hours in the OR), 4 days in ICU( including chest tubes, xrays, CAT scan, 4 pints of blood, insulin, IV antiboitics and a nurse with him 24/7), plus another 4 days in a different unit, with a nuring ratio of 1 nurse- 2 patients, plus a sitter...
I'm guessing at least 100,000.00. Am I far off the mark? Let me know!
What's up for the weekend?
