This is an exceedingly well-equipped hospital. As well as the asbestos screens, they also have a supply of asbestos pajamas, just in case they have a patient who can’t stop being on fire.

Seriously, other than the possible risk of the Human Torch being admitted, why on earth would they be spending money on such a completely impractical and unnecessary piece of clothing?
