Here at the Hospital for Special Surgery as my stepmom is getting her knee replaced.
This is the view from the "Visitor's Atrium".
Unfortunately NY1 is blasting in every waiting room in the place. I don't understand how people can tolerate having the television on all day long.
At least it's not Fox News. If it were I would be the guy the nurses hate because I would insist that I not be a captive audience to their propaganda.
I've noticed that fewer doctor's offices have Fox blasting at their patients in waiting rooms in the last couple years. The last time I had to tell someone to turn that crap off was at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital. The nurse behind the desk was none too happy about it but I figure it's my civic duty to those who are too intimidated to tell them they can't foist that garbage on us.
Anyway, it's a pretty view here at HSS.
