Not Private Enough Hospital

Hospital Visitor Etiquette.
  • Do not greet patient "wag waan pussy?"
  • Do not ask if it's the psychiatric ward.
  • Do not trick invalid into getting out of bed in order to lay there yourself.
  • The electronically-operated orthopaedic bed is not a toy. 
  • Do not hog TV remote control and change channels more frequently than once every 15 seconds.
  • Do not eat patient's left-over lunch or grapes.
  • Do not rip pages out of patient's magazines.
  • Do not debate the endless possibilities of what could be administered via the IV line in front of your mother.
  • Do not offer to bring such substances in on your next visit.
  • Do not outstay your welcome.
  • Joe, visiting John (who has acute tonsillitis with complications) in hospital yesterday.
