There is always that sinking feeling when has to visit the hospital for consultations and checkups with one’s physicians. There is no avoiding the lobby where one sees all sorts of patients and their attendants and it adds to the stress where one is waiting for the physician to attend to you.
There is also the increasing cases of hospital-acquired infections that is a cause of very serious concern. All these for out-patient services and consultations that according to studies last for an average of 11 minutes per patient.
It is true that top tier hospitals take serious efforts in disinfecting the premises including “negative air pressure” zones but the sheer volume and human traffic caused by the floor plan of most hospitals make zero infection efforts difficult to attain.
