According to Health Day News, if you are admitted to the hospital with heart problems, the time and day of week may have much to do with how well you are treated " Patients hospitalized for heart failure appear to have better odds of survival if they're admitted on Mondays or in the morning, a new study finds.

Your thoughts? Have you been admitted for heart issues? What day of the week was it?
