These pictures are a little dark and blurry – because my crappy phone camera doesn’t have a flash and because they were taken in a hurry. After all, you’re not really supposed to take photographs in hospital corridors are you? Probably not. Both are signs from NHS hospitals I’ve been involved with and they are both regarding “assessments”…
Yes, that’s right – I was about to let these people slice me open and rip out one of my organs, when they couldn’t even get their sign right. I mean, come ON, somebody accepted this sign (or did they order it to be like that?), then someone else put it up, then all the staff walked under it day after day… But nobody noticed it was WRONG? Or were they too sloppy to care? Either way, it worried me. The op was a success, luckily.
My second photo is from the hospital that treated my Dad for cancer (he is now dead, sadly).
Again it mentions assessments and I suppose I should be glad that they can spell the word… But STILL the sign gave me a “What the f*ck?!” feeling – because they appeared to be assessing penguins. Despite that and the existence of “Panda Ward”, this was not an Animal Hospital… So I had to assume the place was being run by Surrealists, crack addicts, or Furries – which worried me almost as much as the misspelt sign back at the hospital that treated me.
My final assessment of all this? Based on my photos – the signs are not good.
