Yeah, The Police Were Idiots…

…but seems to me, this is even scarier:
The owner of the car, Delesia Rattray told the Daily Mail she was stunned to return to her car to find the window smashed in and a note from the police to call them.
She had taken her 10-year-old sister, who owns the doll, to visit their mother in the A&E department.
"When I rang they said they had thought the doll was a baby in the front seat. Someone had phoned them to say there was a baby in the car. Some nurses had come out and agreed that it was a baby.
"The doll does look a bit real, like a baby a few months old, but if you look at the hands, which weren't inside the blanket, and feet you can tell it isn't.
"I can understand why they broke into the car if they really thought there was a baby inside."
Nurses..? Nurses couldn’t tell the thing wasn’t real!?

Anyone who has been on a ward lately would know that nurses have honed their box ticking skills at the expense of sensory input and cognitive ability. They are quite unable to see and identify the needs of an English speaking, articulate,elderly patient, under their care, requesting the loo. An unknown doll in a strange car without charts is wa-a-ay outof their expertise.

Good marketing for the doll.

"So real looking it even fools the police"

The blinking thing was just more life-like than the dummies which they do their training with. (Dummies being the training apparatus, absolutely not a reference to trainers).

I fear you're right. And doctors are fast following them down that route.

"...more life-like than the dummies which they do their training with."

Heh!
