Hospitals are a joke!
So, I had to into the maternity ward of the hospital I'm going to deliver at for preterm labour monitoring. We got the itemised bill from the hospital or insurance company (my husband was the one that looked at it) and it is RIDICULOUS. I was there for an hour and a half and was given a shot or rhogam and had uterine monitoring. Non-sterilised supplies in the room (Kleenex, cotton gown, um bed sheets?) $450. Shot of rhogam (costs $120 without insurance to get from a pharmacy) $800 and then some dollars!!! What the heck? How can they get away with charging that? Granted we don't have to pay for most of it because of insurance, but we do have to pay 20%! I'm really at a loss as to how they get away with this.
