Retrofitted ambulance will help medical staff handle extremely obese

C’mon. When you don’t fit in an ambulance, that should be terminal. 1,000 pounds? A winch? This is the best part:

The new ambulance will be more comfortable for heavy patients and will help preserve their dignity, Bell said.
Hey, Joe! Bring in the fat-ass ambulance! You know, the one with the winch!

Yeah. Real dignified.

Ambulance company officials expect to use the unit at least twice a week.
Dr. Keith Bachman, an internist at Kaiser Permanente and an expert on obesity, said Kaiser Sunnyside Medical Center recently began an initiative to make the hospital “obesity friendly.” Kaiser is putting fans in rooms of patients who are extremely heavy and is using special sheets to wick perspiration from their bodies. Special beds with inflatable cells are available at Kaiser for the extremely obese.
You know where I want to go? I want to go to the obese hostile hospital. I want to go to a hospital that paints pictures of pastries on the wall to taunt people. You can get to 400 lbs through depression and glandular problems. You don’t get past 500 without being a disgusting tub.
