The Hospital Experience

Have you ever observed that it is often freezing cold in the hospital? Especially if you go to the emergency room for some reason, you better stop & get a sweater or a sweater before you drive there.

If you have to take an ambulance, you are going to be cold unless they supply you a blanket straight from the blanket heater.

Anyway, I recently had to go to the ER with a neighbor of mine, oh, & let me tell you they must have their AC temperature control set to 40 degrees or something. It was so cold in there, & when you walk outside the temperature control was in the 76s! It was quite a contrast. The nurses & healthcare workers that were working in the ER were all wearing either a sweater or a sweater. I asked the person behind the desk why they didn’t turn the AC temperature control up a little bit, because it was evident that most people was freezing. It turns out, though, that hospitals turn their air conditioning really cold in order to discourage the growth of germs & viruses.Doctors consistently wear those really white coats, & they also often walk around abruptly from room to room, so ordinarily they are not cold no matter where the AC temperature control is set. The nurses & other professionals who spend most of their time at a desk behind a computer, however, really would benefit from having the air conditioning a little bit warmer. I did notice that a couple of them had portable boilers plugged in down by their feet. They did tell me, though, they are really not supposed to do that.
