Re: The survival time of chocolates on hospital wards: covert observational study

Interesting:

(A) confirms that Doctors are so preoccupied with work that they have no time to enjoy eating chocolates?
(B) Patients leave chocolates with the Nurses or Health Care assistants & they perhaps are reluctant to share them with Poor Doctors ?

However it would be interesting to follow this study further & find out the dental state of those involved in the study? Of course you have into consideration of their smoking and Alcohol history too.

Look this is Christmas time, FORGET ABOUT DENTAL CONDITION & SHARE THESE CHOCOLATES WITH DOCTORS TOO and enjoy the festive season.
