    I work in labor and delivery, one patient's request that when she had pain she'd like to use hospital-provided marijuana for pain relief. I told her that's not something we stock.

    Since the kitchen was closed and all we had were cold sandwiches, could I go to said kitchen and fix her up something?

    I had someone who asked me for an phone charger too!! I'm not even sure what kind of phone! I had to ask them to clarify what they meant, because I can't believe someone would think that we carried all varities of phone chargers on the unit!

    I directed them to the visitor lounge phone in order to place any calls they needed.

    I will say, though, that cell phone chargers would be a useful personal care item to have for sale in the hospital gift shop ... if they weren't so well stocked with holiday giftware and home decorative items.
