Overhearing whispered conversations about you while you are in the hospital? Then wondering what they meant by it?
Why do hospital personnel persist in talking about patients while they are in the same room, assuming we are so far “out of it” we can’t hear them?
I’ve discovered even when I’m supposed to be sleeping, unconscious, or loopy on drugs, I hear most of what goes on.
Usually I keep “sleeping” because I really don’t want to be bothered. I’m tired. Plus, I hope someone will say something important or at least interesting. A little bit of juicy gossip about the doctor is always food for thought.
So far, it hasn’t happened. But it could.
