Bed bath anyone?

By moiral
Morning all. This is me at work on a good day hehehe. It's actually a model from the exhibition on psychiatry in our local museum, but modelled on me Tongue. She is actually holding the pharmacy basket and delivering medicines to the wards. Wouldn't fancy refusing my meds from her Grin.
V2 Thought I would throw this in for good measure as it is my main job. This is an old ECT (shock therapy) machine. I do not remember this actual machine being used, but do remember similiar ones in use many years ago. A treatment which was considered quite primitive in the past, and still is by some people, as many had very unpleasant experiences of it's use. The use of this treatment nowadays is very strictly limited and controlled, and the standards for using it are as high as you would find in an operating theatre.
Thanks for C&Cs on yesterday's upload.

Don't think I'd want any form of treatment from that lady, Moira, she doesn't look as though she has any form of bedside manner Sad. Well captured images. Carol

I think she'd ensure you took your pills OK.......she has that no nonsense presence! And I fancy a bed bath from her even lessWink
And although I worked in the health field for some decades, I have never seen the apparatus in V 2.........both she and it........well, Dougie has summarised it so well.......scarySadSadSad

I do like a challenge Moira.
I am sure I could put a smile on her face if she gave me a bed bath.
By telling her a joke off course !!
