Of course, I am not talking about hospital food.
I’m talking about the patients
A patient immobilized in bed, waking up to find mice eating her face.
It has the makings of a health-care horror story — Friends of Medicare says the night-time ravaging by rodents left a Lethbridge senior nursing minor wounds to her face. And it could have been so much worse.
“She’s immobile — she couldn’t even wake up and shoo these things away,” said Sandra Azocar, executive director of the health-care advocacy group.
“It’s beyond comprehension, unfathomable, that this could happen to someone.”
According to Azocar, the mouse-bite victim lives in the dementia unit at St. Therese Villa, a modern 200-bed facility with a history of problems with mice and bed bugs, blamed by some on a policy which allows residents to bring their own furniture with them from home.
A facility with a history of problems with vermin? Do they tell prospective residents about this? Since it is Canada, do they even have to?
Anybody want to run a pool as to which state something like this will happen in first?
