Patients Are Sharing The Worst Hospital Food They’ve Been Served (65 Pics)

Hopefully, you haven’t had to visit a hospital long enough to order food but if you have, I hope it’s better than the bad meals these patients had.

Hospitals should promote health and wellness, right? The whole idea of being there should be to heal and feel better than you did before you came in. Apparently, not if you’re served a meal like this.

I’ve only had to stay overnight in the hospital a few times but I don’t remember the food being this bad. Healthcare is expensive (at least in the United States) and for the prices we have to pay, the least they could do is serve up a nice meal. If they don’t then I guess these meals deserve to be shamed online like every other cooking fail.
