Do You Mind?

Former District Hospital Thurles. This toilet is used by patients in the mental health services day hospital. Whilst it’s highly unlikely that any of the construction staff would invade the privacy of patients, you’d think the HSE would at the very least put up some blinds or a blackout window film temporarily (€4 avg Lidl and Aldi). I don’t think it’s going to break the bank to do this…

    The HSE appears to treat mental health patients with less dignity than what you would find in a battery farm for poultry.

    Surely, that’s one for the “you only had one job” heading, or is it ever right to fit see-through windows in a toilet?

    While a blind would be nice – there is a bit of wall at back of that toilet. It looks about 4½ – 5 feet high.

    While standing you (an average-sized adult) could most likely see out of the window, but the lower half of your body would not be visible to anyone outside.

      Jesus, Cian. Is there nothing you wan’t stoop to defend?

      You’ve probably never been next nor near a building site, so let me explain. Do you see that brown thing running left and right towards the top of the photo? That’s a set of scaffold boards for the gilets jaunes to stand on when they are working.

      Do you see the problem now?

        I withdraw my earlier comment. I didn’t realise the board at the top were for standing on.
        Thanks for the clarification.

      I’d love to try one of those mooncups, just to see how legs-akimbo bendy-flexy I truly could be at the point of insertion/removal. Though that makes me sound like I only ever get the bold thing in the one way that god wishes me to….

        Is it Thor?

        Miss Red: Yeah. Nearly made me cry the first time!

        I’ll get my raincoat.

            ah, it’s an old joke about a girl who said to her friend that she had sex with a god last night and her friend then asks “was it Thor?” and the girl says “yeah it was so thore”(sore) – she had a speach impediment ya see…
            It’s the way I tell’em

    Bring it to Broadsheet! Don’t suppose you mentioned this to anyone at the actual hospital did you?

      I suppose if a load of consultants sending letters about rotting bodies in a morgue can get their concerns addressed so quickly then I am sure that….hang on….

      Yeah, not sure that saying anything is going to do much when it comes to the HSE.
