A staff nurse answered the phone, "Hallo, Ward E2. What is the name of the patient and his room number?"
"He is in bed 1, room 10, "came the reply, "And his name is Albert Brown."
"Could you hold the line for a moment, "the nurse asked, "While I check his records. Ah, yes, Mr Brown is doing well: blood pressure OK, blood test results appear normal, he’s going to be taken off the heart monitor and if he continues to improve then Doctor Svoboda is going to send him home tomorrow at midday."
"Oh, that’s super, amazing, I’m so pleased to hear the news; it really is fantastic, thank you so much."
"You sound so glad,"replied the nurse, "You are so and enthusiastic you must be a close friend or a relative of Mr Brown."
The man answered, "Not exactly, I’m Albert Brown in Ward E2, room 10, bed 1. Nobody in here ever tells me anything."
And another medical joke
While working as a radiology technician in a hospital emergency room, I took some X-rays of a trauma patient and took the results to the senior radiologist, who studied the multiple fractures of the femurs and pelvis.
'What on earth happened to this patient?' he asked in astonishment.
'He fell out of a tree,' according to the report.
The radiologist wanted to know what the patient was doing up a tree.
'I'm not sure, but his paperwork states he works for Mark's Expert Tree Pruning Service.'
Gazing intently at the X-rays, the radiologist blinked and said, 'Cross out 'expert.'
