Default Used Hospital gurney as food preparation table

Guys and gals , I thought you may get a laugh , or a bad vibe from this .
When the Kimberly Hospital closed down , in an auction, a couple bought one of those adjustable height gurneys you transport bodies around on .
He’s 6’5” and his wife is 5’5” , so they had a stainless steel top put on and use it in there kitchen as a place to cut and prepare food etc.
It works great for them ,as they are a foot apart height wise , and there’s a hydraulic foot pedal you can use to raise and lower the gurney to each persons preference .

Heres where the problem comes in for me . How many dead bodies were wheeled around on that thing?
I have a thing for bad vibes , and this really gets my spidey senses tingling lol .

I was wondering how you do you guys feel about preparing your dinner where I’m assuming there were dead bodies lying on it numerous times

I donít always insulate , but when I do .
Ok ,I never insulate

as long as it wasn't your body - what's the problem...
well - it it was your body.... it'd make no never mind to you...

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...
If only new layers hadn't been added....

We used to do a lot of hospital renovations and we used the old gurneys for work tables. Had a chop saw set up on one.
They were great because we could wheel them all over the hospital.
Rick, live patients are transported from operating rooms , XRay, labs, etc. on the gurneys, they ar standard for moving sick people around. sure beats a wheel barrow.

Hopefully the food they prepare on the table is also dead, so the trend continues...

I have to say that it's something I've never wondered about. Until my son became an ER doctor, I wouldn't have worried. But after some of the stories he's told me, I would have to have the table profoundly sterilized before I would consider it.

The bad vibes are merely the stories you tell yourself. Given that, this thing would spook me too.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

I donít think all the sterilization in the world is going to remove the stuff Iím concerned about lol

Let's see, now. What could we prepare on our gurney? Leg of lamb? Chicken thighs and breasts? Tripe? (Organ meat) Mountain oysters? Meat balls? Head cheese? Rib eye? Lady fingers? Elbow macaroni?
