Four years after Sault Area Hospital agreed to allow mixed-gender wards, an shocking instance of male self-pleasuring in the presence of an outraged 61-year-old female patient has come to hand.
The woman has told the Sault Star that she was recovering from a heart attack when the man in the bed opposite hers started masturbating.
At the same time, she complained, another man in a bed adjacent to hers was giving her "the eye."
The woman was shocked by what she says was the off-hand response from hospital staff when she asked them to cover up the chicken-choking man's genitals.
"The nurses were laughing. They thought it was hilarious,” she told the newspaper.
