Here’s something you don’t hear everyday.
Apparently, nurses were left ‘off their faces’ when a patient’s elderly relative accidentally gave them a cake laced with cannabis as a ‘thank you’, a hospital worker has revealed.
Imagine the scenes in the ward – just a load of nurses giggling their arses off and smashing packets of biscuits.
Police arrived at the hospital to discover that staff had eaten a red velvet cake that was full of the Class B drug. It had been brought to them as a thank you present for the care they had provided to the relative of an elderly man.
It is thought that the cake was made for his grandson’s 18th birthday and he had no idea about the contents.
Hospital bosses at first denied that anyone consumed the cake but after police confirmed it was eaten on the premises but were forced to admit ‘one member of staff’ tried it but ‘did not experience any effects’.
However a member of staff, who asked not to be identified, claimed that ‘three or four’ nurses ate the cake and were left ‘off their faces’ and ‘relaxed’ by it.
The staff member said: “They were eating the cake and then the next minute the staff were all off their faces.
“It was brought in by a nice old man as a thank you, but it was full of funny stuff and had them all relaxed.
“There was no impact on the patients whatsoever, but they all knew something was wrong, so the police were called in.”
Police tested the cake and confirmed it contained cannabis. It’s believed the Class B drug was added to be enjoyed at a teenager’s birthday party, but his grandad unwittingly took it to the hospital when he saw there was some left.
The police investigation found he had no idea what was in his grandson’s cake and that he was shocked to discover the disruption it caused on the ward.
A police source said: “It was genuinely an error by all parties, even the person who put something in that he shouldn’t have because he didn’t know it was going to the hospital.
“Nobody knew that, and that’s why we’re not taking it any further.”
Their chief nurse said: “A homemade cake was brought in to one of our wards in error by a patient’s family.
“The item was collected by plice to be tested. An internal investigation has been undertaken and we can confirm that one member of staff tried the cake, but they did not experience any effects and there was no impact on our patients.”
