Danish heath care system

February 16th, 2009 by UFO in Denmark

Since Thursday I have had problems with my throat without any improvement over the past days. Today I made a decision to visit a doctor. The lægehuset (clinic) is very close to my dormitory, but I took a bike anyway. The weather today is bad even for Denmark: fog and steady raining.

After registration and hour and half waiting, I went to the doctor's office. She examined my throat and sent me back to the waiting room to wait for the nurse. Another twenty minutes waiting the nurse called me in. She took some samples from my throat and blood for my finger and sent me back to the waiting room again. In less then half hour the doctor called me again. As I sat down in the office, she said to me, that the bacteria in my throat was resistant to antibiotics and I should go home and lie to bed. Hmm, goodbye, thanks. No medicine, nothing. I should have probably stayed in bed…
