Re: Who says hospitals in Zurich are the best because they are not

When they woke me up, the lady wouldn't tell me what i may have been babbling about!! All I remember is falling asleep on a tropical beach!!

Music? I thought that was normal. Yes, I do watch Medical Dramas!!

That was my first general anasthetic.

Re: Who says hospitals in Zurich are the best because they are not

i just stayed a week at the unispital and i think i've come out the other end in credit re all the insurance i've had to pay lol!

anyway, not that i've got any experience to compare it to, but the care and service was exemplary. the nurses are amazing! they have all this technical stuff to do but remain smiling throughout.

Many doctors in ZH come from Germany and speak high german but not swiss german. To the locals they are "foreign".

All doctors in the UK speak English as it is now a requirement, even if it is not their native language.

The NHS has far more doctors than Zurich, please don't suggest otherwise, or you will just look dumb.
I have observed the so referenced "foreign" ones are mostly involved in the first 1 or 2 stages of checkups and the final work esp. when surgery is involved is done by the swiss doctors (can make out from their Swiss German).

Re: Who says hospitals in Zurich are the best because they are not

I've been super impressed with the hospitals and physician care since my arrival. Totally different than US. Particularly with how chaos-free the waiting rooms are and doctors who aren't rushed. Yeah, getting information in German is hard sometimes but I'm in a German speaking area. I'm thankful! Sorry your current experience is different.
