My hospital has recently put suggestion card boxes in every ER room. This is, if I am not mistaken, one of the Signs of the Apocalypse.
I've thought of stuffing the boxes... "Too many buffalo, not enough armadillos." "Not enough nurses wear white caps. Or blue capes with red lining." "Mysterious Tokyo, pick me up foxy night game."
Wait, I'm off the subject I wanted to talk about. Which is: real patient responses.
About half the responses are variations on: "I waited too long. Why did it take so long? It took hours to get me to my room. I was here far too long. You need to reduce the waiting times."
Another third are variations on: "The nurses were so kind and considerate."
The rest are random. Including my favorite:
"Go to Hell Dick Faces, your Fucking Bums who suck on Monkey Gorilla Cock meaning your a Fucking Mammals Fucking Losers."
I was going to call this patient, and discuss his ideas on how we might improve his ER experience, but sadly, he signed a false name on the card.
薬缶 == yakan == (noun) kettle
|Originally a pictograph of a container with a double lid. This character now usually refers to metal containers. Henshall suggests taking it as 'noon' (午) and 'mountain' (山), and as a mnemonic: 'Open can for noon picnic on mountaintop.'|
