Obese patients are being treated on the ground floor of a hospital because of fears that floors above them made of crumbling concrete could collapse.
The shocking disclosure has been made after a group of MPs visited the hospital, built with reinforced autoclaved aerated concrete (RAAC).
Labour MP Meg Hillier, chair of the Commons Public Accounts Committee, described what the MPs discovered as “jaw-dropping”.
“Heavy patients must be treated on the ground floor because the combined weight with equipment is too heavy to be safe.”
First of all, shame on you for thinking the guy above is gross. Truly disgusting behavior.
There is no second of all.
Honestly, I feel bad for these folks. Imagine what that must feel like. You're needing to go see a doctor because there are complications with your fatness. They tell you that you'll need to see a heart doctor (duh) so just come on in and look for the signs to cardiology. No problem. "I can fuckin read so I'll be able to find it," you say to assure yourself that you can find it because, if not, you're fucked. That's a lot of walking and your lungs aint what they used to be. You should also do a casual check-in with the pulmonologist too.
You waddle your way down the walkway and start seeing cardiology on the signs. It says to go down this hall. Well, it doesn't say it. There's an arrow that indicates that this is the way to cardiology. UNLESS…..
If that's the case, you gotta stay on the first floor. No fats on the upper levels.
Once word begins to spread that only the super fats are on the first floor, no one wants to be treated there which is a shame. Everyone deserves to be treated with dignity and respect. No one should feel like they cant see a regular cardiologist on the normal floor because their weight is abnormal.
In my most humblest of opinion, people should be able to trust that the hospital that they are being treated at has the ability to hold their weight on any floor that an appointment might be. If you are 500lbs, you should be able to go even to the highest of floors in a hospital. I know what you're thinking but it should be safe. After all, sometimes they have MRI machines up there and them things are heavy and honestly a little dark-sided. I think that machines like X-rays and MRIs are witchcraft. No machine should be able to see my bones in my body!
