Long Hallways

Imagine a long corridor or hallway, empty of all people and obstacles. What does that image make you want to do?

Most kids at the hospital like to run around and scream as they pass down one of the long hallways in our hospital, which leads to our clinic.

So as I was roaming around another hospital, at which I was working today, I came upon a similar scene. I've passed this way quite often. Each time I get the same feeling. This hallway is perfect. It is long, about 50 yards. Has three sloping floors with flat areas in between.

Now close your eyes again and add at the beginning of your hallway/corridor a hospital bed with wheels. Now what do you want to do?

Every time I turn the corner to this hallway there is at least one bed waiting at the top and it takes all the self control I have not to unlock the wheels and go soaring down the ramps!!

I'll let you know when I get brave enough to try it. (I'm not kidding it is so tempting, I think I'll try it out when I have a friend there to give me a push and stop me at the end. There are automatic doors at the end, so I wouldn't crash into those, but that would put me into a waiting room. Hmmm.)
