Non-Resident hostile.

The Hawkes Bay Hospital won't touch Larry as far as dialysis is concerned. Should he contract peritonitis, we'd have to wait a couple of days to get anti-biotics from Auckland to take care of it, anti biotics that need to be injected directly into the dialysis bags. If we even have a question we've been told the Hawkes Bay Hospital won't help us out because of the non-resident situation.

Awesome right?

We pay for all our hospital visits, hundreds sometimes thousands at a time. We've appreciated the support some doctors have offered, but to be told we can't even ask a question is pretty pathetic.

With the amount of people on dialysis, I don't know why this backwards country hasn't moved up with the Jones' yet and expanded resources.
