From "The Medical Registrar" (facebook)
Once upon a time, there was an elderly care team of doctors who became very concerned that none of their demented patients were being fed at lunchtime.
So at the expense of their own lunchtime, the three junior doctors went round feeding and watering the patients as best they could.
This did not go down well with the "patient experience matron" especially when the local MP and the Chief Exec witnessed this and asked why the doctors were feeding the patients.
In response, the trust banned all medical staff between 12:30 and 2PM from the ward so such embarrassing scenes will not recur.
And that was how protected mealtime (at least at one hospital) was born. True story.
