Ants eat away womans eye in hospital

I think I may be even more diligent in checking the state of the clinical room on Monday after reading this :D

The Science Bit:
The ants are attracted to the high levels of glucose in the fluids produced by wounds of patients with poorly-controled diabetes.

In-patients rely on family members staying with them in hospital to stop this sort of thing happening.
And I mean sleeping on the floor beside their bed.
Stepping around sleeping relatives used to be quite a common occurance for me at one point in my career 8O

We should be grateful for some aspects of the NHS at least.
