when fear of litigation deprives you of dignity

In Britain, an elderly woman was obliged to drag herself up a flight of stairs and down a hallway because paramedics declined to help her, citing health and safety regulations related to heavy lifting.

If I were that old woman, I'd go through the exercise one more time: I'd work my way down to ground level, pull off my trousers, then drag myself upstairs and along the hallway again, defecating the entire way.
