- Why are there no Doctors around at family visiting times?
- Why are visiting times so restrictive when often patients have little to do all day?
- Why do fairly modern hospitals not have a phone at each bed and a selection of more than 3 radio stations to listen to?
Then today, I went with Little Miss P from work to see G who is a diabetic member of staff and is in one of the local teaching hospitals having had a hypo as a result of a bad cold last week. He was admitted on Saturday. The weird thing is that had this week been a Clinical teaching week, and not a vacation, I would have been on his ward and could well have been off to see him to get a history and examine him. I'm not sure what the rules are on this - can I just say "I know him", or would I have to consent him and him refuse? Anyway I hope he's better soon.
