From November 29, 2015. Hospital stakeouts are a pretty regular thing, but they're pretty strange experiences. First off, lets be honest: no one wants to be in a hospital. The thing is, you're also not supposed to be in one unless you're friends or family of a patient there, and any intruding reporters caught on premises are usually kicked out if they're caught (meaning you get to go stand outside the entrance). These assignments make you feel a bit of a fraud sometimes.
