Doctor Being Roasted for Harsh Review of Austin, TX Children’s Hospital Food
When someone in the family goes to the hospital, many things run across the family's mind. How long will the stay be? How will we get to and from the hospital? Most importantly, will they be ok?
While an adult might be able to handle questions like this, children may have a different reaction to them. They might be nervous and even little bit scared of what staying in a hospital will entail. Thankfully Children's Hospitals are around to help little ones through a very uneasy moment in their lives.
Recently however, one MD is criticizing a children's hospital, not for the staff treatment, but for another reason.

My Personal Opinion
Going to a hospital at any age is a mentally taxing experience. When I was young, I remember my little sister being taken to the hospital for health issues. My mind was focused on one thing, trying to making sure my little sister was ok.
But later in my life, I had the opportunity to visit St. Jude's Children's Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee. Arguably the pinnacle of children's healthcare in the nation. Those children were going through some of the toughest times in their life, and I remember a story we were told about a child wanting a Cheetos pizza.
The chefs at St. Jude made her that pizza, because it made her feel better during an uncertain time.
In my opinion, whatever food makes a sick young patient feel better, as long as doctors allow it, should be given the patient to make them feel the best they can during an uncertain time.
