Don't say that I didn't warn you.
So, my niece has had a diaper rash for about a week and a half now. It is horrible. It sometimes bleeds and is resistant to EVERYthing we have tried. It has times here and there where it's looking better and then the next diaper...all
So, Josh takes her in to a local urgent care tonight. They REFUSE to see her, stating that they need a current Medicaid card. (Because we only have custody of her and we have not adopted her, she cannot be on our medical insurance.) Josh tried to calmly explain that since we got custody of her, the Medicaid people have been called several times and we are always assured that in "5-7 days the card should be received". Nope. They need her current one, or she will not be seen. Josh tells them that they have seen her before with the old one, they just called to confirm that she was still covered. "I'm sorry. Without her current one, we will not see her."
I didn't even know that it was legal to turn a child away! I'm so angry! And, of course, stupid Medicaid is only open "8:00 a.m. to noon and 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. Oh, except for on Thursdays, when we can't even get off our asses to start answering the phone until 11:00 a.m."
So, here's hoping that their building catches on fire tonight and the flames lick the receptionist's ass on the way out the door.
Let her feel some of the pain, that this baby is in.
