Hey, You! Get Off Of My Ward.


blogs.news.sky.com

The Prime Minister was left in an awkward situation when a visit to a London hospital turned sour for his following press pack.

David Cameron was with a camera crew, producer and small group of photographers at Guy’s Hospital when the media with him was ordered out an orthopaedic ward.

The senior consultant was unhappy they did not have their sleeves rolled up in the ward. He is heard shouting “I’m not having it, out”, before they leave.

I've just seen this on the news and thought I'd post it.
The look on the PM's face is priceless and good on that guy for sticking to his guns and the rules.
I've heard some say he's a jobsworth but I thoroughly enjoyed seeing Cameron and Clegg and their press getting a good ticking off.

I would be interested to see a little more of what was said and find out whether the doctor/consultant was just following hygiene procedures, or if he was just pissed off at the "photo op"

Anyway, what do you guys think?

Wow, he sure takes that rule about having your sleeves rolled up pretty seriously.

Good thing the patients were wearing short sleeves,would hate to see them kicked out to.



But really, I am guessing the doctor was a hard ass and just liked things to be done perfectly by the book. Maybe he was having an especially bad day and perhaps he just was never crazy about them being there in the first place and was just looking for any reason he could find to kick them out. I really don't know.

Hmmm

I agree with the consultant. If I had a career like that and I had camera men walking all over my ward and two idiots with their heads so far up their own A**. I would of done the same. Don't they realise this is an hospital?

Sigh

The hospitals get so much stick in the UK for not being clean enough, to right that doctor should stand up for hygeine procedures.

A hospital is a hospital first, a 'photo op' second.

I know man... the whole thing was just cringeworthy, at least the politicians had their sleeves rolled up, I wonder if the camera crew just got their late or thought they could just blend in to the background and that maybe the shouty doc wouldn't catch them

I've seen this happen a lot when I worked inhospitals. To begin with, the man was not in a private room, therefore there must be consideration of the well-being of the others in the room as well as the other patients on the floor. Notice the security contigency in the hallway probably obstructing the free flow of hallway traffic.

This consideration not only includes the possible unnecessary introduction of germs into the room, but also the noise factor and privacy factor. Whenever such an event was proposed where I worked, the press and visitors were escorted to a theater/lecture room and the patient in question was brought to see them there via wheelchair. The risk factors were lowered by much.

This was obviously not a well-planned visit.

Well, ultimately I guess there is no way to really know. You could ask the man himself, but I bet you, regardless of his reasons, he would stick to his guns and blame sleeve policy.

Althoiugh I do support this coalition over the other lot of blithering stupid Labour idiots......... I must concede that this was a BIG cock up........!!

The BBC camera crew were either.......
a) not aware of the issues and made a mistake
b) were aware of the issues and made a political point
c) were all media lovies and didn't really care either way as long as they got expenses and an expensive cup of coffee......

The Senior Surgeon was SPOT ON and correct......... the media will portray him as a stickler and Job's worth But he was dead right...... I guess he may have got a Cob on because the crew, dressed in suits looked too much like bloody medical sales reps !!

The media and the media circus around this visit just go to show how OUT OF TOUCH some in power and those bringing us the news really are .....

PDUK

Well that makes sense for sure.
They treated it almost like they were at a factory or bakery or something..... as you say, there are others to consider in that room and clearly health and safety issues.

I like the clip for several reasons, it shows nobody is above the law/rules

Imagine if this was Obama


This guy wouldn't care who you were in his ward, he'd kick you out.... and good on him.

The more I see of this on the news, the more I applaud the guy for doing it.

typical politician.
while others are working there they are

with their photo-ops and self promotion

getting underfoot and in the way

or work has to stop
like that search for survivors that was stopped,

cause king oreo was in town,
and the SS couldn't have people running around

kudos for that doctor

he should have put a boot in 'is erse

like a certain scots footie player is always recommending
