The Children’s Hospital

On Tuesday and Wednesday, I spent almost two days in the Children’s Hospital. After having three days of stomach pain, the doctor decided that I should go to the emergency room to check my stomach. I obeyed my doctor’s instructions cheerfully hoping a visit to the major hospital will get me the answer to my pain. This will be my 3rd visit to the emergency room in four years. I never liked that place, usually only pain or something not good happened. Fainting, Dislocated a knee cap, and now a hurting stomach will be enough for me to dislike. Despite disliking the hospital, everybody will have to agree that the hospital has the coolest machines ever. The doctors thought at first my pain was a symptom of something serious, so they allowed me to stay for one night in the hospital. The room for the night was very un-hospital like. It has a bunch of machines, but it is more like a suite. There is a bathroom, a bed, a couch for my parents, a huge flat screen TV, and the best of all, a Xbox 360 for me when I’m bored. No matter how much the hospital is like a hotel, I still can’t sleep. It just doesn’t feel the same. I will rate my stay a A-. Even though the services by the nurses were terrific, the waiting is way too long. I have to wait an hour each time before doctors came to see me. I had a blast playing the Xbox 360! IT was great. Anyways, the new Children’s Hospital is a pediatric facility located in Aurora, Colorado, serving patients throughout the state and the western United States. In addition to the main facility, there are also many smaller facilities located in Denver and the vicinities. It is ranked among the top 10 children’s hospitals in the country by both CHILD Magazine and U.S. News and World Report. As of 2007, U.S. News and World Report ranked the Children’s Hospital as the #4 best pediatrics hospitals in the US. The Children’s Hospital treats patients with childhood psychiatric disorders, such as autism, attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder, or selective mutism as well as chronic diseases
