I’ve had my own run-ins with bad hospitals in Jordan. But this is a story about the Prince Hamzah Hospital: a public hospital, and a “new and improved” one at that! Sadly, it is a reflection of the current disparaging state of the public health system that is available to most of the country that cannot afford private health care or don’t have a relative in the armed forces, that allows them access to the Medical City.
Public hospitals in Jordan are also filled with inhumane, indifferent and incompetent hospital staff.
Every Health Minister in the past decade has promised to improve them.
