They're Taking Over the Asylum

While spending an idle moment 'surfing' the internet yesterday, I came across one particular website, or blog or whatever it is, that I enjoyed immensely.

Gimcrack Hospital provides an antipodean expose of life in an 'improper' hospital. As someone who, many moons ago, spent a summer vacation cleaning the nether regions of elderly folk in a South Manchester hospital, I can attest to the veracity of almost every word written by the estimable Nurse Myra. It seems that the carnival of life in a psychiatric hospital is much the same whether it be in Australia or Withington.

Don't get me talking about UK psychiatric hospitals, however, or we'll be in for a very long posting, indeed.
