The (Great) Outdoors
The only access to fresh air on the ward is a balcony. It is fully fenced in from top to bottom. The door is locked. When I open it, I am screamed at by nurses and attendants alike that the outside air contains germs and will hurt people. How can you hate fresh air? How can you prefer recycled, stale, smelly, germ-filled building air to the outdoors?
