A doctor dies and of course goes to hell.

The devil says you have a choice between spending eternity in one of the next 2 places...

Door #1: Medical Records, with the clerk chasing him to sign (and date and time!!) all his orders.
Door#2: The Emergency Department, everybody's a Code Blue.

So the doctor sees another door down the way with a doctor sitting in a chair at a desk with one nurse rubbing his shoulders and another bringing coffee, and he asks, "well what about that one??"

The devil replies, "Oh no, that's nurse's hell."



  • one froggy!
  • altho nurses only fully understand the sarcasm in it tho...LOL. :)

    My family doesn't really get why I roll my eyes at ER, House and have to walk out of the room at the stupidity I see.

    These shows depict docs performing nurse (MY) role for the past 20 years in ICU/ER, show nurses in outdated roles, or just plain ignore the fact nurses exist altogether.
    This just reinforce the 'doctor as God' complex IMO.

    The health care team is made up of many other dedicated people and I am so tired of doctors being the only focus.

    Med techs, nurse assistants, PT, OT, RT, LT, etc.

    OK off my little soapbox (to great relief I'm sure)

    Thanks FroggyRN1!!

    I guess that most of my life has been surrounded by nurses.
    My wife started out as a Respiratory Therapist, then years later got her Bachelor degree and carries the RPT, BSN title proudly.
    Needless to say that a good portion of our friends are in the medical field. Nurses from the ER, from Critical Care, to Operating room. Also in the group are a number of Doctors.
    So basically, me being the computer guy is sort of in the minority.
    Point I want to make is that overall I believe nurses in general are:

    Not appreciated
    Do much more than what the guidelines state

    I have total respect for nurses. Their overall caring nature and ability to work long hard hours, working with
    critical patients and such is very admirable.
