Hospital foundation visit
On Tuesday my mom (78) had knee replacement surgery. On Wednesday I sat with her all day. She was in really good spirits with little pain due to all the drugs she was on. She was treated like a queen with people in and out all day. They have a new wing at the hospital so the facility is gorgeous, almost overkill. One of the people visiting was from the Hospital Foundation for fundraising. The foundation rep didn't really ask for money, just created awareness that their office was there and the purpose of their office. A business card was left.
Am I wrong to think this is inappropriate the day after surgery while a person is on drugs? If they'd have come the next day (Thursday) when they took her off the meds, my mom's attitude would have been totally different. To me, a mailing several weeks after the fact would be more appropriate (she'll probably get that too). Of course once Mom starts getting the bills her attitude might change even more differently. Thoughts?
