A suppository ( funny Hospital Story)I was around 19 and very naive and the nurse was explaining that I needed to take the suppository she was holding in her hand the night before.... blah, blah, blah... I didn't hear anything she said after that because my mind was racing with thoughts of dread.... finally it's like the cloud lifted and she asked if I had any questions. I looked at her and I was just miserable with worry, and asked (while staring at this very large "pill"), "You mean to tell me, I have to swallow that whole thing at one time?
" She said, "Excuse me, I'll be right back..." she went rushing out of the room with her hand covering her mouth. A minute later I heard gales of hysterical laughter coming from alot of people. When she ran out, she left the door open. I sat there and watched a parade of people slowly walk by my room and look in and they could hardly contain their snickers.
When she finally came back, she explained that A suppository is a drug delivery system that is inserted into the rectum

Do you know how they make these rubber gloves?A surgeon was getting ready to perform a simple operation on an elderly lady. She had been administered a local anesthetic. He noticed that she was a little nervous, so he began to tell her a story as he was putting on his surgical gloves...
...."Do you know how they make these rubber gloves?"
....She said, "No?"
...."Well," he spoofed, "down in Mexico they have this big building set up with a large tank of latex, and the workers are all picked according to hand size. Each individual walks up to the tank, dips their hands in, and then walk around for a bit while the latex sets up and dries right onto their hands! Then they peel off the gloves and throw them into the big 'Finished Goods Crate' and start the process all over again."
....And she didn't laugh a bit!!! Five minutes later, during the procedure, he had to stop because she burst out laughing.
....The old woman blushed and exclaimed, "I just suddenly thought about how they must make condoms!

Hospital regulations require
Hospital regulations require a wheelchair for most patients when they're being discharged. However, this girl working as a student nurse found one elderly gentleman -- already dressed and sitting on the bed with a suitcase as his feet -- who insisted he didn't need her help to leave the hospital.
After a chat about rules being rules, he reluctantly let the nurse wheel him to the elevator. On the way down, she asked if his wife was meeting him.
"I don't know," he said. "I think she's still upstairs in the bathroom changing out of her hospital gown."
