Phones and Hospitals...

There was a news article in the Daily Mail yesterday that is echo' d on the BBC News site today.

Doctors want the ban on mobiles to be relaxed (as they want to use them) and scientists say this is a bad idea.

PatientLine and PatientCall (the two companies who bought the rights to bedside telephone charges) obviously want a full ban!  They charge between 10p and 26p per minute.

Oddly, yesterday the consultant obstetrician's phone went off during Serena's surgery and no-one batted an eyelid!  She just got the midwife to answer and ploughed on with removing the placenta!

Fortunately Serena's room seems to get a reasonable signal so you can ring her direct on her mobile!

We expect her and baby to be home sometime tomorrow.
