They've never said "dummy" on Top Gear, so I don't know what it means.

apotheosis27: what the hell is a dummy?

/nice of them to apologise


At first I was thinking a training mannequin, but then I thought that was too ridiculous. It must be the word "dummy". But then I read the article, and I'm back to square one.

I think the Brits call a pacifier a dummy. Maybe they stuffed the pacifier in and and taped it on to silence the poor baby. Kid could have suffocated if his nose plugged.
 
2013-01-25 01:37:54 PM
Perhaps a tag that says "dummy?" Inquiring minds want to know.

DUMMY - British slang term for a baby's pacifier.


Makes a whole hell of a lot more sense compared to what I was thinking.

Good thing he didn't have a lorry taped to his face. I've also heard that a lot of British babies get torches and bonnets and pavement taped to their faces.
Do not admit your child to a British hospital!

FTFA:

A separate report by the Healthcare Commission in 2009 revealed between 400 and 1,200 more people died than what is considered normal between 2005 and 2008.

it has also recently emerged the trust has paid out more than £1m in compensation to 120 victims of abuse or their families.

 Sounds like this hospital has far more serious problems than someone taping a binky in place.  1200 too many people died in 1420 days.  That's almost 1 a day!

What the hell is going on at this place and why is it still operating?

If only they could stop sick people from going to a hospital. Have them die on the street, and that will stop messing up the statistics.

Did you miss that part?  1200 wasn't the total for the time period, it is the number above and beyond the norm.

I never allowed my children to be treated with a pacifier and I think they're probably better for it. Is a couple extra minutes of noise in a day really worse than the possibility of some life-long oral dependency? Picking up a crying child improves the child-parent bond way better than sticking a place plug in their mouth.

No - Mid Staffs health trust is a clusterf**k. It's amazing none of the senior staff have gone to jail.

I'm just glad the Poopy family don't live there.

Sheeit, I've seen folks shut their kids up to age four with a pacifier.
The only thing worse are the older-than-toddler-younger-than-tween kids hooked up to kid leashes.
Really, any kid on a leash.

It makes my skin crawl.

I didnt know what a dummy was either because the article didnt exactly tell me. I couldnt figure out if it was a piece of tape with dummy written on it, a crash test dummy or something else. On my phone the picture in the article looked like a watch.

CSB:

We have some friends who are Kiwis and they moved to the Midwest. Their little girl was in daycare and could only say a few words, one of which was "Nappy". Every time she said it, the staff tried to get her to take a nap. Eventually they learned that in New Zealish (and the UK), nappy=diaper.

Not one but two farking auto-play videos.
When my son was born he inhaled poop and had to stay in the hospital for a month. They had him on a ventilator and lots of meds. When he came off the ventilator they put him on a C-pap machine. He needed a soother in his mouth to complete the seal on the thing and he wouldn't keep that thing in no matter what. We were *this* close to taping it in there but of course, we didn't.
