ginandbacon: If they just served some decent veggies I'd be happy.


I'm sure there are lots of long term coma patients that they serve, and many of them are decent people.

Happy yet?

grumpfuff: My mother spent a few days in a hospital about a month ago, and while there she ate better than I do at home.

Just spent another night and day in the hospital.  They put me one what they call a "clear liquid diet," which means a broth loaded with enough salt to give an elephant hypertension and a carton of water, high fructose corn syrup and "natural" flavors which they actually had the audacity to call "juice."  The concept of nutrition is completely foreign to hospitals.  If hospital food improves, it'll be a miracle and I'll say "Thanks, Obama" most sincerely.

maxheck: Bathysphere:

After my appendectomy, the hospital gave me black forest cake. It was delicious. In the psychiatric ward, the food is nasty. They serve decaffeinated coffee with every meal and encourage you to drink it, even if you don't like coffee. CSB.

One of those weird little things you learn... After you have a spinal tap the first thing they tell you to do is go down to the coffee shop and chug the biggest, most caffinated coffee they have. Don't know if they were getting kickbacks from the coffee shop in the lobby, but it seemed to be common knowledge.
What the heck are you going to say to people who stick needles in your spine?

Stop it?


Good point. Other weird thing you learn is that when they do the spinal taps is they invite basically the hottest nurse of the opposite gender to "observe."

They don't do a darn thing, they're just there in the room to keep your mind occupied. Heard the same thing from female subjects, they got the hot guy nurses.

Also, pack sandals. Your back will be too farked up to bend over far enough to lace shoes.

The hospital by my house (UCSD Medical Center) looks more like a hotel inside than an actual hospital. Which is good I guess?
