Maraca Caca

Patients at a hospital in Cardiff, Wales, say they are “too scared” to use a day room for patients as it’s so far from staff, no one would hear them if they called for help. There is no “call” button in the room either. Staff at the Royal Infirmary’s West Wing provided a solution: they placed a tambourine in the room for patients to summon a nurse in emergencies. If that doesn’t work, there’s a pair of maracas.

The patients’ plight came to light when a man visited his 90-year-old mother at the hospital. “I thought she was joking about the tambourine,” he said, “but I went to the day room and there it was.”

The unidentified man said he shook the thing, but “after 16 minutes I gave up as no one responded.” The National Health Service is investigating.

A THOUGHT: “The maracas, man. Did you try the maracas?”
