III! 8 p.m. Lynne Van Luven Hospital hints Hospitals are an okay place to visit, but I'd never want to live in one As a recent scarred, but ambulatory, survivor of one of Lethbndge's Halls of Healing, it occurs to me that one should not merely check into a hospital, expecting a Lourdes-type miracle One should prepare oneself Therefore, here is a cunningly subtitled, "Turning the other cheek for a hypo whilst maintaining mental equilibrium" Point one in pre-hospital psyche-ups television is a great deceiver Don't expect to be met shapely starlet-like nurses or to be wheeled ceremoniously to your private, lavishly ap- pointed room Nor should you expect braces of muscular, hand- some, ever-so-concerned doctors hovering at your bedside or striding assuredly into your room when you take a crucial turn That kind of thing happens only m the febrile minds of TV scriptwriters and hence on "Medical Centre" and Dr Welby Point two: aside from their M D certificates, most doctors are quite ordinary mortals Erase all images of kindly, silver- templed and sagacious family surgeons Smudge up that crystal-clear concept of a moody-but brilliant specialist giving a nick-of-time diagnosis yours is the only North American case of Fungn of the Femur and Lower Tarsus Point three: Bear in mind that doctors and nurses are only human Bear silently observations about their seemingly sub- human ministrations Alter all, sick people can be a whiney bor ing lot Even you might get tired of answering call lights and bleating complaints Point four: constantly remind yourself that the unwritten credo of hospitals is, "Abandon all shreds of human dignity all ye who enter herein" You will soon see this motto practiced close range You will be asked to bare your quaking frame to needles, pokes, jabs, rubs, incisions, sutures and plain clinical scrutiny Draw comfort from the fact that none of these demeaning activities are directed at you personally and that your room mates are just as mortified as you by the strangled groans issuing from within the white curtains shrouding your bed Point five. Expect the worst After all, your doctor may be obsessed with internal (as well as external) cleanliness, thereby earning himself the title along the wards as "Public Enema Number One" It's wise to be prepared for such situations Point six: expect not to like the overcooked, bland and un- imaginative fodder Appearances aside, each tray will carry the requisite nutrition, as specified by Canada's Food Rules So eat and shut up Or eschew, and loose the 10 pounds you re always yakking about If you cooked 431 meals daily, your broccoli probably wouldn't resemble broccoli either Point seven: Show signs of life as soon as possible following anaesthesia and sedation Accept only every other hypodermic preferred to dull your suffering, unless you are wealthy enough to support the demarol habit thus engendered Last and final point: Be much in evidence about the hospital whether it be holding rowdy gatherings in your room if confined to bed, or weaving uncertainly about the halls if am bulatory Pester the nurses Thus, your pleas to be sent home will be met much more receptively Nobody likes a trouble- maker cluttering up vital bedspace P.S..
