I hate hospital food.

I’m picky about my eats so I’d say that their food is absolutely vile. I generally don’t eat in restaurants because I can make better at home nine out of ten times.

I never seem to go to the same hospital (probably because of lack of beds, so I get ambulanced over hours away).

But, it seems to vary soooo much. The best I had was at a dedicated psych hospital. I think when they don’t have to

  1. travel with huge amounts of food through multiple units so the food gets soggy or cold

  2. feed people with specific health concerns as their primary audience

…the food is better.

What bothers me THE MOST is when a hospital repeatedly feeds me food I have an anaphylactic allergy to. The last hospital I was at did that plus they didn’t have an epipen available plus one staff member accelerated another patient’s breathing attack who had both asthma and panic attacks by saying “breathe”, “breathe”, “well, I don’t know how to help you then” and just sat there…didn’t get help or anything. I didn’t trust them to not kill me there (and this was a longer term stay and I wasn’t suicidal at the time). I went on a hunger strike until they could show me an epipen.

You gotta do what you gotta do. :woman_shrugging:

I thought when I was in the ward that my figure of erotomania wanted me to be fat so I gained a lot of weight in the ward…

Well, when I was in the hospitals, meals were the high point of the day. Anything they served was alright with me. They could have served roasted rocks and moss stew and I would have still looked forward to it.

To be honest, I was in several hospitals and none of the meals were really that bad. Cheese sandwiches, oatmeal, or a slice of meat were really never that bad to me.
