In recent days my grandmother, my dad, my mother-in-law, and my sister-in-law have all been in either the hospital or emergency room. In any case they have been subjected to time in a hospital bed.
Okay, it goes without saying that those forced to occupy a hospital bed are in some way incapacitated, injured, or in pain. They are in an emotionally vulnerable state. They are stressed.
So riddle me this? Why the hell are hospital bed TV remotes such a pain in the ass? Why must you go through the whole damn array of station in only one direction. Why must these institutions of health torture their already beleaguered patients by making them continue to push the damned button when they accidentally overshoot their desired television station by one?
Are all hospital bed remotes this way or only here in Amarillo?
I get the fact the same remote calls the nurse, raises the head and feet of the bed, but really in this day and age of technology a channel down button is too much?
It is my belief this is just another example of the health industry sick and demented sense of humor. Why else would they make you parade around in a gown with your ass hanging out after a tonsillectomy?
