Hospital costs

Paul had an accident at work yesterday, will write more later. While I was waiting for Paul, I took these pictures of charges, remember this doesn't include such things as any treatment, surgery or medications, these are just room costs.

That sounds very cheap to me!! I spent one day at the hospital earlier this year just to check to see if I was allergic to tetanus. In fact I arrived at 08h30 and left at 13h00. The cost €1200!!!!! Thankfully NHS paid €1000 for me as we are not permanent residents here yet, but I was still a bit stunned by the €200 that had to come out of my pocket. Diane

Thanks Diane Paul is fine, it would have been similar for me except I had a top up insurance, wouldn't be without, my op was over €4000, I only paid for the TV and telephone.
