Doping Meat – More Medical Lunacy

I’ve seen it all now. This news item, from Adelaide Now, tells of the disappearance of lamb shanks from a healthcare facility. These had been used to practice injecting and suturing – fair enough. However, they had been injected with Lignocaine (a local anaesthetic), rendering them toxic.

This begs the question – why? In case the lamb shanks are capable of feeling pain? Or is water now so precious that it is now better to use drugs for practice?

To me, this makes about as much sense as the armed forces conducting all exercises with live rounds.

If ever I needed confirmation that the healthcare profession has its share of total idiots, now I have it. Our life in their hands? Scary.
