Occupying a hospital bed.

In the East the symbol of wisdom.

Would you book yourself into a busy hospital for a week or so simply to get free meals?


About Ian Gardner

Ian Gardner was born on the 20th February 1934 in Sri Lanka, then Ceylon, and christened Basil Ian Gunewardene. He was born two months prematurely and nearly died five times in his first two months. He moved to Australia in September 1969 where he changed his surname to Gardner. From childhood he had an enquiring mind and an innate interest in the supernatural. Since 1986, nineteen years of meditation, "searching within", reading and revelations have culminated in this free book which has been nine years in the making. Further writings followed and all his writings are available to all on the Internet free of charge. There is more information in the preface of the book.

    No, but if my child was hungry, and there were no other immediate options…

      Now, this raises some serious questions – such as:
      1. The person who might need that bed and whose occupation of it would save their life is also the child of a mother.
      2. Is the life, or comfort, of an individual more important than the life, or comfort, of another because the former is our child?

    … NO, but when i was a student in the student restaurant you could get unlimited extra food, you only had to pay for your plate, and so we often ate with 2, 3 or even 4 from the same plate. I would not do that now anymore.
    … Now, suppose the hospital staff gets to know the purpose of your visit and gives you free enemas?
    … i don’t know you if you can get free health care in any part of the world. The bill will be much higher than your restaurant bill would be.
    … of course it is not very ethical to take one of the limited hospital beds, and some of the limited staffs time and care for a crazy “money saving” scheme. You might take a bed from somebody who really needs it, and might reduce care from somebody who really needs it.

Well, what do you say?
