    In the pediatric hospital where I work, the cafeteria closes at 5, and only the McDonald's is open overnight and on the weekends!

  2. That's an awful lot of breakfast meats! I'm a medical reporter for a newspaper and the most sugary foods I get served are always at the events at the local hospitals or med school. My newsroom jokes they're trying to ensure long-term success by giving us the diabeeetus.

  3. Gosh, the middle one looks like sausages, but I have no idea what the others are!

  4. What they take up to the rooms isn't any better.

    Sure it kills people, but it looks way better than the single poptart I had for breakfast this morning! (I later went shopping and now have several poptarts)

  6. They have to serve this high salt/fat combo, or else the surgeons would have to eat/pee before 6PM.

    One of the hospitals i was posted to had the same sort of food - burgers and fries, and nothing else. It was really difficult to keep to a healthy diet. I was horrified and a little annoyed to be honest; after all what kind of example are we setting? I had to walk fifteen minutes out just to get a healthier alternative - Subway. Apparently, healthy food is just too costly to provide these days!

  8. I have eaten at my hosptial cafeteria only once this year (over halfway through intern year in Australia), which I am proud of. Mind you, the fact that I often did not get time to eat lunch is not so great.

    One of the major perks of my job as an anesthesiologist is that the hospital I work at always has free PB and J at the OR lounge.
