    Hospitals, the only place where someone WANTS a detailed description of your bowel movements, vomit, secretions, etc. AND wants to see them!

    Hospitals...the only place where we can, more or less, tell what might or might not be growing in your bodily fluids based on smell alone...or whether or not you're bleeding.

    Hospitals - the only place we give patients a privacy curtain in a room with a door, but allow them to walk down the hall in a gown that shows their backsides.
