So, my nurse was wheeling me around earlier because I was going stir crazy. We were joking about how small the rooms are, the rehab wing is in the original part of the hospital so its quite a bit older and could use some lovin, especially compared to where I was transferred from. She was showing me the different parts of the wing, and told me I got one of the biggest rooms, I jokingly said "haha how did I get so lucky"
Well, she said "because you have great insurance of course" and then went on to explain that there was even a "medicaid" section, smaller rooms, older couches trays etc. And that is where the medicaid patients all go :(
Honestly, I think its kinda sad that just because someone has medicaid they are purposely put in a shittier area. And because someone else has "good" insurance they get a bigger, better room.
