I DO hope so.
What a sick, vile practice - I'd be all for such people being billed for the cost of Babcia's stay in the hospital, especially where it's a clear-cut case.
Asked a friend who worked in a hospital and they say this is not new at all. Does that make it a tradition?
It is, somewhat. I know a junior doctor who told me all about this sort of thing - they frequently get Babcia dumped for a couple of weeks while (obviously) the care-givers go off on holidays.
