One could assume that the hospital was evacuated quickly (some sort of govt/military style evacuation looks to have been attempted, based on the ruins of society we've seen so far) - and perhaps there were not a lot of "walkers" lurking the hallways - or those that were followed thier future meals outside.
Stupid worrying about food/water comment aside, I'm just going with the Hospital had a minor outbreak, they pushed back the outbreak-ies into the caff, then abandoned ship fast as the rest of town went to ****.
Hell, it happened in real life during Katrina, without a zombie apocalypse baring down. It didn't bug me here.
either way, some of you need to sit back and just enjoy it. An Abraham's doesn't have a hatch on the bottom, nor is it that big inside, and a glock doesn't have a safety. And this won't be star trek.

They don't. True zombies, in the Romero sense, just waste away under normal/abnormal biological functions. They eventually are consuming themselves (muscle and organs and fat) until there's nothing left and they rot and die, or just die because there's literally nothing left to keep them going. The hunger is just some primitive instinct, whatever's left of the brain telling the body to walk and to feed. It wouldn't be uncommon to eventually just have zombie heads, still barely alive sitting around. There's also some Fiction about how dieing, and becoming cold blooded slows the metabolism, thus they rot and lose energy less.
Or you got the Return series where zombies are both biological weapons and magical creatures. So you get skeletons, pickled specimens, and Michael Jackson coming alive.

It sure made me feel for the horse, and not feel bad for the main character.
Surprisingly, the zombie in the park scene was brilliantly done too. You really felt something for something you never where supposed to in the genre previously.

Thats what I took away, Gf was cheating on him at the time of the convo in the car and before. Hense the "she was distant, cruel and cold lines". Makes it even more sick, since the buddy was telling him how he needs to treat a woman, all the while sporting a **** eating grin.
