'Pillowgate': Dave Donates Pillows to Hospital

We’ve had more reports of a ‘pillow shortage’ at Mildura Base Hospital this week... here’s Dave ... who called us yesterday...

Dave was true to his word ... and yesterday donated pillows to the hospital. Big W Mildura also kindly donated pillows.

We understand staff at the hospital were glad to receive the donations.

So why is there a shortage?

We’ve contacted the Hospital ... but so far we’ve not had a reply.

Ramsay Health ... a private business ... has a contract to run Mildura’s public hospital. Is it a case of business minimising costs ... or is this an issue in other public hospitals too (Ones that are run by the public ... for the public...)

It's a sad situation ... we'd cry on our pillows ... but we had to give them to the hospital!
