Take Frozen Water for Hospital PatientsIf you are visiting someone in hospital, freeze a bottle of water the night before, and take it in. The water will thaw very gradually, and will provide a refreshingly cold drink over quite a long period of time. Provided that the patient is not nil by mouth, this is so much better than the tepid water jugs provided by the ward!
