"$59,000 and all I got was some morphine and this lousy tumor."
That's the t-shirt slogan of the day.
Mom got her insurance statement which shows that her first stay in the hospital from November 6-9 was a whopping $59,000. She went into the ER for a nosebleed that wouldn't quit and came out with a sinus tumor, a whopping headache, and a multitude of drugs in her system that had her so screwed up for days she didn't even know where she was.
$15,000 of that bill was for the operating room.
Are you kidding me?
