It all looks so clinical and Victorian and efficient and no-nonsense. It's all the hospital I have ever seen in old movies. It's the very essence of hospitaliness. I can just smell the Dettol!

How did you manage patient privacy without dividing curtains? Bed-baths and injections and so on.

PS. Don't know what's wrong with my comment bit. Will try and see if I can fix it, but I have no idea what I'm doing and it still never fails to amaze me when a post actually posts.

Boy howdy, let's hear it for privacy.

Sam: at the end of the ward would be screens on castors and for any activity at the bed-side, screen would be wheeled round.
It could be somethhing I'm doing wrong - wouldn't be the first time.

Hoss: See comment above re screens.
Did I manage to April Fool you this am, or are you too sharp for me?
