“Mrs. Ross,” someone called. I assumed it was time for my flush. But the receptionist continued, “no photos allowed in the hospital.”
I was stunned.
“No photos in the hospital, Mrs. Ross. It’s hospital policy.”
“My blog’s in trouble,” I ventured, when I’d recovered from the shock. But she didn’t see the humour. Then a feeble, “But it’s my story.”
At each silence, she kept on:
I have to delete any photos I’ve taken. Pause.
If I want to take photos I need to have “Security” accompany me and approve each one. Pause.
If she called security they’d make me delete them right here and now.
Since I learned of it on May 4, I’ve been hoping to eventually join the hospital’s Community Advisory Committee.
