WW: Cut here to exit.

This photo was taken in a health care facility and was sent to me by both Jim Jensen and Jeff Tock of Ingersoll Rand Security Technologies.  🙁

    Oh @#$%^&!

    Nothing surprises me anymore.

    Wow, that really does leave me wordless. How many motions does it end up taking to get out that door? I figure at least four, not to mention the 30 seconds it would take to realize why the door won’t open, trying to put your fingers in the scissors (assuming you have working limbs, hands and fingers), and time to cut through that thick material.

    Are you sure is not South America?

    I worked as an Institutional Locksmith in a large medical center complex in the NY metro area. This is pretty normal stuff.
    The nurses favorite material to use on doors is usually bandage tape. Good to see that a little more imagination was used here. 😉

    If it was around here there would be a double-sided d/b on the door too.

    Completely acceptable….

    Those are SAFETY scissors!

    They have the roundy points so you can’t hurt yourself!
