Mobile Phone Ban

Apparently mobile phones no longer interfer with medical equipment. Wonders never cease. Another scare come safe! Patients are now allowed to use their mobile phones in hospitals. The undoubted benefits in keeping contact with loved ones at a time of need can now be recognised. The quite remarkable benefit to doctors and people who need to contact them may soon be recognised and they too will be "allowed" to use them. This could be the single most important improvement in the health service possible. Why have we been putting up with the madness of mobile phone bans in hospitals?

Fascinating how things work out. There is a repeating theme of misinformation leading important decisions. If only we could have predicted this...Oh, we could! LOL!
