    Today, I heard one of the doctors on my ward (SHO, I think) telling a patient that he had to leave the hospital and go to a community hospital instead to free up the bed on our acute stroke ward. It went like this:

    "Mr, uh... [patient's forename]... uh... you, like, are going to [community hospital]. This is because you're, like, medically fit and we like, need this bed. You can't stay here. Uh, so yes. You have to go."

    :facepalm:
    But I bet it's not too hard up financially right?

    We have plenty of space on our stroke wards but no money! I really seem to have lucked out with the nicest medics. They even say hello to me in the morning!

    Shame our hospital is closing now.
