Where I stayed
Kangda Hotel, Nanjing
We headed up to a meeting room where we met the main professor of nursing for the hospital and for the university, she was really nice. It is a huge hospital it has around 2200beds in it and they are wanting to expand it to 5000! I've decided i really do not want to get sick in china. I definitely have not seen anything like it. There are people literally having heart attacks in the hallways! Apparently there can be upto 30 beds in the corridors of each ward!!!
We checked out the cath labs today for cardiology. It was crazyyyy all the patients family would wait right outside the door and as soon as their relative would come out they'd run to them and carry their iv lines etc! Also the dr calls the family in during the procedure to show them the heart and ask them what treatment option they want for their family member depending on how much they can afford... too bad if you can't afford anything, you just die apparently.
So all and all today has been an interesting experience, and we are only half way through having a look at the hospital we are getting picked up later this afternoon to see more, they have a sleep break in the middle of the day!!
