Re: Room 402
My view of hospitals and dying has always been colored by George C. Scott's/Diana Rigg's 1971 movie The Hospital.
One time they called me - my Mother was dying - she was supposed to be in Rehab/PT for a broken leg getting training prior to release. When I got there - rushed to ICU - she was there - they sorta thought - but no records of dying - after some searching(half a day) found her in one of the wings - very chipper with no memory of drug reaction.
Apparently - they overdosed/gave the wrong drugs to the wrong patient/ or something.
