Scene Report: Mejiro Hospital

I was hanging out in Mejiro tonight and was walking by the local hospital, so I thought I’d stop in and see how the facilities were for the next time I break my arm. (Last time I broke my arm skateboarding, a common occurrence, I was shuttled to three different hospitals before seeing a doctor who could “set” my arm sans painkillers of any sort in the x-ray room so no one could hear me yell at the top of my lungs. And now my left wrist makes a weird clicking sound ALWAYS. Yay Japanese medicine….)
So without further adieux, Mejiro Hosital Scene Report:
Accommodations: Shabby. The usual combo of dirty beige walls, Betadine-stained entrance way from some Gumi member “bleeding out” in the genkan onto the non-sealed cheapo faux Linoleum.
Floor: Dirty as fuck
Staff: Nice security guard. Gross doctors.
Bathroom: No soap. What? Why? This is a fucking hospital. A doctor came in and took a shit while I was in there, then casually rinsed his hands before walking out.
Rating: Five fucking stars. Never take me there.

    That entrance way stain was probably Mercurochrome, not Betadine. Or possibly just blood.

    Did you have to put on sandals when you went in?

    yeah, pretty standard.
    tho JR Shinjuku General isn’t bad and the one in Hiro-o is nice, even comes with cute nurses, hohoho.

    I have to give super-obligatory shoutout to Sanno Byoin, as they have their shit together. Clean, professional, and great doctors. They just close at 4PM.
