act of God

apparently i slept thru a thunderstorm (what?) last nite.

because this is what i saw going to work this morning....

a tree in the visitors' car park has toppled over.....

......causing a dent on the roof.

so, who should pay for the damage?

the hospital because it collects parking fees?

car insurance comprehensive insurance?

the hospital has made its stand that cars are parked at owners' own risk & car insurance policies generally do not cover  "acts of God."

guess the car was at the wrong place at the wrong time.

just like MH17?

We can never know when we would be at the wrong place at the wrong time. The car must belong to someone working overnight at the hospital I guess.

ironically, it was my patient's car. he stayed overnite because of surgery.

I would have thought as a patient someone would have sent him and picked him up after his surgery. Is he supposed to drive so soon after surgery?

doc said...


no, he was still recovering from surgery. his wife was with him throughout his 3-nite stay.
