The porter’s office

Head porter: Sure, right away. Hello, Wahid? Are you there?
Porter Wahid: Yes.
Head porter: Where are you?
Porter Wahid: I’m at the top of the stairs outside Physiotherapy.
Head porter: OK. Can you go across the hospital to the stores and collect a box of disposable syringes and take them to the Path lab? And also, a wheelchair.
Porter Wahid: Box of syringes and a wheelchair, OK.
Head porter: Porters’ office … Yes, Doctor Sayed, I’ll do that … Hello, Brian?
Brian: I’m here,

Brian: Where are they?
Head porter: Outside Cardiology near the swing doors on the main corridor … and then take a stretcher to Ward four, collect a patient and take him to Radiology …Hello. Porter’s office …

I'm the Head Porter in this hospital. What do I do? Well, I run the place.
Porters do more than just push food trolleys around the hospital. We transport patients by wheelchair or stretcher from the wards to Radiology or Physiotherapy and back again. We remove dead bodies to the mortuary, we lift and carry heavy equipment and furniture, and we dispose of all the waste. Each hospital bed produces 4.5 kilos of waste every day. We collect it each day and take it away for recycling.
We deliver the post all over the hospital and bring letters for patients - that's a very important things. As we move around the place, we take files, samples, and specimens from here to there and back again. Last year I walked 1.800 kilometres!
To do all these things a porter must be fit, be able to think clearly in an emergency, and be polite and friendly. Next time you are waiting for a porter to answer your call, please be patient. He will be with you as soon as he can.
Giving directions via email
Dear Mr Keane,
Here are the directions you asked for from the railway station to the City Hospital Renal Unit. Leave the railway station at the main entrance. Turn right and walk along Station Street for about 100 metres. Go across the road to the number 45 bus stop. Take the bus to the hospital. Get off the bus opposite the hospital. Walk along/down Byron Avenue and take the first left. The door to the Renal Unit is on your right. The Renal Unit is next to the hospital research library.

Modern wheelchairs are a big improvement on the first wheelchairs, which were just wheelbarrows like the ones we use in the garden. Professor Stephen Hawking’s wheelchair, for example, is a vehicle, an office, and a domestic servant, all in one.
The first real wheelchair was owned by King Philip of Spain in the sixteenth century. It had the latest technology – removable arm rests and leg rests – and was made of wood. Modern wheelchairs are made from the same strong, light metal as aircraft, and electric engines mean that users don’t need to use their arms or have someone to push.
Wheelchair design made a big jump forward with the invention of a computer program that responds to voice commands. For users who cannot speak, computer technology also makes it possible to manoeuvre a machine by small movements of the head, hand, tongue, and breath.
Some things that able-bodied people do without thinking can be a major problem for disabled people, for example climbing stairs, entering and leaving buildings, and using toilets. A wheelchair can either help or make the problems worse. So before choosing a wheelchair there are many questions you have to ask: Will the wheelchair be self-propelled or manual? Which is more important, maneuverability or stability? How do you get in and out of it?
The iBOT claims to solve many of the problems of standard wheelchairs. It is a highly advanced, all-purpose wheelchair that can travel up stairs, raise the user to reach high shelves, and balance on two wheels in the shower. It is great fun to use, but beware the price – the iBOT costs as much as a luxury car.
