Italian Hospital Asks Doctors Not To Snort Cocaine At Work

Giuseppe Di Maria, an An Italian hospital director, is in a bit of hot water over a memo he sent suggesting that doctors and nurses should not snort cocaine while on duty. From the article: "Social services chiefs have opened an internal inquiry into the affair and also referred it to the local prosecutor's office. Director of social affairs Guido Scoditti said he had no choice but to pass the matter on to the authorities. 'The director of the hospital has certainly made an error, he should not have sent this memo, he should have informed me directly. The alleged consumption of cocaine in a hospital environment should certainly not be dealt with in this way,' he said."

That doesn't seem like something you'd send in a memo.

You should also refrain from injecting heroin while at work, too. :-P

The Board of Registrars would also prefer (1)

The Board of Registrars would also prefer if staff refrained from:
* sodomising unconscious patients
* urinating in the stairwells
* using quadriplegics in electric wheelchairs for hallway races
