was recently at a hospital and noticed these signs

was thinking back to the various hospitals I’ve been at over the years… 

when George was in St. Boniface Hospital for his heart surgery we were able to use our cell phones in his room but not in the halls of that ward as the phones might affect pacemakers… 

a few years later, when I was there, I could have my phone in the room without a problem… was able to use my phone at HSC a few years back as well…

now there isn’t anything saying you can’t use your phone but they don’t want you to take pictures of others… what are people doing that the hospitals need to have these signs all over… yikes…

today people use their phones to keep family and friends informed about how the patient is doing, without having to leave them to find a spot inside or outside of the hospital where they are allowed to use their phones…

while I was there I found my way to a bathroom, made it outside, and back to the room without getting lost… I am notorious for not being able to find my way around in unfamiliar places, lol…
