I was in hospital the other day and ended up in a ward for observation. My local hospital has moved up slightly in terms of vegan food. They actually had soy milk this time though I had to ask for it and the lady had to fetch it.
The food menu had a tick list on the back for vegan. I don't know if there was an actual vegan menu like it insinuated as I had moved to the discharge lounge by lunch time. But I did get a potato and veg casserole with sweetcorn and brocolli for lunch which I quite liked. Dinner was a bit lacking in the ideas department; jacket potato and beans, side salad. They did add a soy yoghurt though. Fresh fruit would've been nice as it was definitely on the menu.
That's an improvement I guess. Although the fact that hospitals serve primarily (if not only) "foods" that cause disease is outrageous.
I was in the hospital 8 years ago or so for an appendectomy and I just had someone bringing me some food from the outside. I reckon they had some vegan veg cream or something like that, but I'd not trust them with that (only "trust" them with my life because my other choice was to die, so...)
"There is no hope. Knowing that humans die untimely, by the millions, simply makes me feel a bit better. If more than, say, 2000 were killed in one go, I could smile. 20000? I might throw a party..."
There is at least one hospital that serves only vegan food, amazingly. Think it's somewhere in the USA.
Thankfully the hospital shop sells a vegan sandwich and vegan wrap. Plus vegan flapjacks. And it has a Costa coffee too which sells this really nice caramel cookie thing. I couldn't see any vegan sandwiches but the soups in Costa were vegan.
It is stupid that hospitals serve animal products and junk food in general. A poor diet will not help sick people. They still sell chocolate bars and other junk in the vending machines.

cybernaut: Well, it can be a little hard for me to come here sometimes because of how negative things can get here. I realize there's much to be negative about, but it's still hard for me all the same.
