KATHMANDU — A hospital in Denmark has shared a photograph of a 75-year-old patient enjoying his final wish of a cigarette and a glass of wine with his family, while watching the sunset from a hospital balcony.
Carsten Flemming Hansen was told by staff at the Aarhus University Hospital that he was too sick to undergo surgery on his stomach and would die of internal bleeding.
After being informed of the news by his nurse, Rikke Kvist, Mr Hansen told her of his final wish,despite the hospital’s no-smoking policy — to watch the sunset while enjoying one last glass of wine and a cigarette.
She was only too happy to oblige — despite smoking being banned at the hospital.
“That was when I remembered that we are on the same floor that has access to a balcony,” Kvist told Avisen.dk.
With the help of Mr Hansen’s family he was taken out to the balcony to enjoy the sunset on Tuesday evening.
“It was a very cozy and relaxed atmosphere,” the nurse said.
“Of course they were relatives also affected by the fact that he was going to die, and they were sad. But it was cozy and there was humour.”Follow @gorkhapost

One of its branches got infested by insects and is on saline drip as part of the rejuvenation. The tree is given treatment by injecting diluted chemical to kill termite population that infested it.
Termites had affected almost entire tree due to which parts of it are fallen, and it closed for tourists in December 2017.
District collector of Mahbubnagar inspected the tree and ordered forest officials to take care of it. They began the treatment of the tree with mixed chlorpyrifos(Pesticide) in saline bottle.
Forest officials are infusing the chemical solution drop by drop using saline bottles similar to a saline drip given to patients in the hospital as pumping of chemical into the stem failed. The solution was injected in the barks of the tree.Follow @gorkhapost
