A Doctor Goes to H*ll...

  1. a doctor died and went to hell. he was met at the gate and asked to stand in a room and wait for satan. after four hours satan finally appeared. the doctor was incensed. poking his watch he said, "how could you keep me waiting so long!! i am an important man! i am a doctor!" satan replied, "doctors are a dime a dozen here in hell. but i'll tell you what. since you had to wait so long, i'll give you a choice as to what part of hell you will spend eternity in." satan took the doctor down the hall and said, "i'll be back shortly. you can choose between door #1 or door #2. when i come back you can let me know where you want to be assigned..."
    the doctor opened door #1. inside was an icu. blood was spurting, alarms were going off and pts. were coding. a man in the corner extubated himself, as a woman in the center fell oob. the doctor quickly shut the door and said, "my god, i really am in h*ll. i'd better check door #2." behind door #2 was a medical records dept. unfinished charts stretched for miles with notations about delinquent h&ps. message slips from managed care case managers filled a swimming pool sized bin, all marked urgent. inside, physicians were dictating as sweat poured off their brows. the doctor shut the door and said, "i don't know which is worse." then he noticed another door off to the side. he opened it and inside was a tidy nurses station. the nurses were all young and beautiful. they were busily making rounds with doctors and calling to obtain lab and x-ray results. they poured coffee and served donuts purchased with their own money. one doctor c/o a stiff neck and a nurse rubbed it for him. "now this is more like it," the doctor thought as he closed the door. satan came strolling back down the hall and said, "well, which have you decided on, door #1 or door #2?" the doctor replied, "actually, i would like to go behind door #3." "that's not an option," said satan. "but that's what i want!" said the doctor. satan replied, "im sorry, but you can't go in there. that's hell for nurses!!!"
