It's hard to follow a doctor's orders 24/7. But some people can't even do it when they're on their way out of the hospital.
A recent Reddit thread asked hospital workers to share the dumbest things they've seen patients do upon leaving. The answers might make you feel better about your own health practices.
I work in medical imaging where patients have to drink oral contrast for their exam.
Some folks really hate the stuff and one patient after being given the oral contrast went outside and dumped it in the bushes and came back in and said that they had drank it.
Our front desk lady actually saw her dump it in the bushes and told us about it but we would have seen the lack of contrast in the image even if she hadn’t told us. I talked to the patient and was like “we can see inside of you, we can tell if you drank it or not.” - Kyla_420
