It is never a good idea to formulate negative opinions about a situation or person, when you don’t fully understand it.

People (including me!) complain about all kinds of things which they claim is unnecessary and superficial, simply because they may cause some minor inconvenience.

It would be so much better if people were to take the time to find out the reasons behind a particular action or situation. I had to do a double take when I heard of the recent death of several newborns because of the spread of germs in a hospital. Apparently, certain routine hygiene practises were not observed by staff members. Added to this the HVAC system was a bit off and not maintaining the required low temperatures. I must confess to being one of those persons always harping on about the low temperatures in hospitals. Most of them are colder than Alaska and I truly hate the cold. Little did I know, though, that if the HVAC unit does not maintain these temperatures, disaster can result. There is a legitimate reason for having the temperatures so low, namely – it helps to kill germs. Even though I was not personally involved in the sad passing of those little tykes, I still feel kind of guilty about criticizing hospitals for the low temperatures their HVAC units supply. Being who I am, I will not promise never to find fault with hospital air quality again. Promises should not be broken. Still, I will always remember to wear a sweater to be able to better handle the effects of hospital HVAC.
