The past two times I've gone to the hospital (nothing major, I was sick and wanted the doctor to tell me what was wrong . . . hopefully get something perscribed that was stronger than what I was taking . . . . ) and the past two times someone at the hospital had to tell people not to use their cell phone. Yesterday, someone was even told to turn it off. Why is that? Is it because the cell phone could screw up the frequencies of the hospital machinery or is it because the hospital doesn't want someone talking about confidential stuff over the phone? I was discussing it with another patient in the waiting room (it was her mother that was told to turn it off) and we thought the reason could be one of the two I mentioned but we weren't sure.
