I got my new needle for my port in yesterday, at Carefor. The nurse and the nursing student were very friendly and helpful.
We mostly just chatted about the differences in the two countries’ healthcare, where most of the horror stories to them are distance events from another land “I’ve heard of things like that”, shaking her head sadly. “Thank God things like that don’t happen here in Canada.”
The nursing facility was so nice, everyone was so professional, it felt weird that I didn’t have to pay. I’m so used to having to pay when I get my needle in. It just seemed strange for the place to be that nice, the equipment to be that new and modern, and then for the entire experience to be free. It felt weird.
