Hawaii hospital turns away horse visitor
医院:马匹不得入内


Sun Mar 23, 8:17 PM ET

LIHUE, Hawaii - A man hoping to cheer up an ailing relative at Wilcox Memorial Hospital hadn't considered one of the visitation rules: No horses allowed.

  夏威夷,LIHUE--一名男子希望让受病痛折磨的住院亲戚心情舒畅一些,但没有考虑到探访规定:马匹不得入内

The man thought the patient would enjoy seeing his stallion, said Lani Yukimura, a spokeswoman at the hospital. He and the horse entered the hospital earlier this month and rode an elevator up to the third floor, where they were met and stopped by security personnel,

  医院女发言人Lani Yukimura说这名男子认为病人看见自己的种马一定会很高兴。他和马匹于这个月早些时候来到医院后搭乘电梯到了三楼那里遇到保安人员后被阻止。

Security managed to get the man and the horse out of the hospital, with "just a few scuff marks," she said.

  保安顺利地把马和人都带出医院。她说:只是留了一点手印”

The hospital has a pet visitation policy, but it's for dogs and cats, not horses.

  这家医院有宠物探访政策,但是对猫狗有规定而没有规定马。

"On Kauai, we have a very warm inviting atmosphere at Wilcox," Yukimura said. "We just hope people understand this is not a place for a horse."

  Yukimura说:"虽然我们这的欢迎气氛很好;但却也不希望有马进来"

The man's good intentions were further dashed when his relative was brought out to see the horse.

  这名病人后来被抬出病房看马,给这名男子的好意更泼上了一盆冷水。

"That's not my horse," the patient said to hospital staff.

  而病人告诉医院工作人员的是:"这不是我的马"

I think "scuff marks" here means scuff marks left on the floor (地板上留下的磨损痕迹).
