My Dad just checked out of that hospital, the week before last.
Fortunately, we (with a GA permit) can carry in GA hospitals. I've also spent more occasions than I care to recall, sitting in the ER with my Dad. Man - what a freak show. Two days ago, we were in the University ER, on a gurney and waiting for a room. They then parked a guy in handcuffs, dripping in blood & secured to a wheel chair about 5 feet away from us.
I'm reminded of what an incredibly dangerous job that our EMS folk have.
