I spent 5 days in a ward 4GS at the Flinders Medical Centre (FMC) last week, due to the skin graft on my leg becoming infected, whilst I was preparing for the Mallee Routes exhibition at the Murray Bridge Regional Gallery. I ended up at the emergency department of the Victor Harbor Hospital on the Sunday of the exhibition open, then went to FMC early on the Monday morning. I left FMC late on Friday afternoon.
Though I was on an intravenous antibiotic drip for the infection every six hours for the 5 days I was ward 4GS I was allowed to make short walks outside the ward in-between the 6 hours.
The short walks meant that I mostly explored the area around the coffee shop such as Theo's or the cafe in the Centre for Innovation in Cancer. I would usually wander around this area after treating myself to a cup of coffee; or after dinner at 5pm.
