Never tell me there's a better hospital than Mayo, because I won't believe it.

Over 10,000 people shared it and over 160,000 people liked it. That means Rochester, Minnesota,  Mayo Clinic patient Melissa Stone went viral sharing something she discovered inside a Mayo Clinic changing room.

"A DISPOSABLE HIJAB"

Mayo Clinic says they've been offering the disposable hijab since 2018. It'll come along with your gown and cute little non-slippy-slipper-socks. IF you don't get one, just ask and you'll have one lickity-split.

Reading thru the comments and replies I learned the response was so huge because it was such an unusual and wildly welcome thing. Many religions make use of a hijab, or something like it, and many in the comments talk about feeling incredibly exposed during procedures where they could use a disposable hijab.
