Do you know what hospital rooms need? Microwaves. Seriously people, the food here sucks and then it doubles it because it arrives cold.

I mean, you can order out or make popcorn or even ramen noodles, but noooo: the stupid machine apparently interferes with important life-saving equipment and people may die nearby like the hospiatl was attacked by Cechen terrorists with an EMP bomb.

Excuse me for wanting a hot meal, sheesh!

  1. Miggy, my man…

    Turn that Latiin charm on the charge/head nurse and ask to use the one in the nurse’s lounge. Offer them chocolate in return. It WILL work, trust me…

  2. I wonder if there might be a market for some form of food/drink reheating system for use in hospital rooms. Obviously it would need heavy shielding if it was a microwave, but maybe there’s another solution. Hmmm… maybe a 220-240V connection to an enclosed hotplate?

    1. MRE heaters would work. But in many hospitals, each floor has a small room where you cna get ice or water, and many have a small microwave in them, if they will let you access it.

  3. Not sure about regular one but private maternity hospitals in Australia had microwave, tea, coffee making, refrigerator etc for waiting family 30 years ago. According to my midwife sister they still do.

  4. I wonder about this supposed risk of interference. If medical equipment is really that sensitive to interference, then any passing radar transmitter or ham radio operator would cause emergencies. And clearly this is not so. For that matter, no sane manufacturer would build such susceptible equipment, and it’s even possible that regulators would have enough neurons to check these things.

  5. As others have said, shielding of the microwave shouldn’t be an issue … especially given how many medical monitors use wireless links these days.

    Perhaps line load ratings? Or, more likely, they just don’t wan the liability from … whatever. (Bored patient: Hey, I wonder what happens if I microwave an IV bag…?)
