Yes, I had 4 cookies for breakfasts this morning: brain food! That's me ensconced in an enormous rocking easy chair in the Neurology lounge, where I frequently put my feet up while reviewing charts or writing notes.
Scenes from social distancing: The in-hospital eatery is closed down, and the tables and chairs have been replaced by a cooler with 1/2 gallons of milk and shelves with loaves of bread. Is this an invitation for panic purchasing as if a snowstorm were on its way?
All of the couches, chairs, and end tables have been pushed into a corner in the lobby to prevent visitors or patients from lingering. The entrance is now cordoned off, and security guards check badges in order to keep the number of visitors low.
