Fury at gross hospital meal
A SHOCKING photo of an "omelette" served to patients at Scottish hospital has been branded "not suitable for a dog".
The image of the horrific meal shows a tiny omelette so charred from overcooking that pieces have broken off.
It was served to a female patient at Edinburgh Royal Infirmary and shared on social media by one of the country's politicians.
Hi @JeaneF1MSP with all the attention on QEUH in Glasgow, I don’t like to add to your burden but I must. My constituent has been in Royal Infirmary Edinburgh 10days. This was her dinner tonight. Food’s been consistently poor. (It’s an omelette btw) can you challenge contractors? pic.twitter.com/M7FQUdar4r— Alex Cole-Hamilton MSP (@agcolehamilton) 28 January 2019

Social media users were disgusted by the photograph.
One wrote: "That's an omelette? It looks horrific. And where are the vegetables? One can only recover properly on a balanced healthy diet.
"Making an omelette even for large numbers is not rocket science. Scotland's flagship hospital is one scary place."
"Omg you wouldn't feed that to the dogs. My brother's in hospital at the moment and he was given a burnt shell pie and equally burnt beans the other day. Equally unsuitable for the dogs," another said.
