When it comes to hospital wait-times and parking rates, there is never a win-win. Since we are patients and not there because we want to be, hospitals should charge reasonable rates.
Recently, I had to get an IV drip. As I waited and finally got my drip put in, my parking ran out. Of course, I had no way of renewing the meter once I was in a room on an IV drip. When I came out, I had a $48 ticket.
Where is the justice? Greedy companies and governments charge for everything. What's next, getting charged for the air we breath?
Anyway, I went to security and they said parking is not consistent and they do not always check so don't worry about it? OK, so now I am told there is no consistency.
This is a hospital!!! Make it a one-charge parking fee. I have travelled to many places in U.S. and Canada and there is much more free parking available and especially at hospitals in other areas. What is up with this city and charging crazy prices for everything?
Come on now. This is a hospital, and we can't always get to our cars. What if someone went in with a heart attack?
Talk about a double bad luck day - getting a heart attack and charged for parking or parking expiring. Give me a break!!!!
