You may be working in a redneck hospital if...

    2. The hospital makes its own alcohol from a still out back.
    3. The ambulances have gun racks, NASCAR bumper stickers, and beer can holders.
    4. You hear the intercom say "Paging Dr. Bubba to the OR", and 5 Drs. show up----and they're all related.
    5. Spit cups and coolers are considered standard bedside equipment.
    6. Pts. are given a choice of Coors or Budweiser with the grilled SPAM.
    7. There's a case of duct tape on the shelf next to the dressing supplies.
    8. More than 3 pts. say "I don't know how that fish lure/beer can got stuck there" on any given day in the ER.
    9. They use '67 Chevy hubcaps for bedpans.
    10. The defibrillator is a truck battery with jumper cables.
    11. There's a goat in the ER----and it's a frequent flyer.
    12. There's a license plate collection nailed to the walls of the Drs. lounge next to a movie poster of "Deliverance" and a shrine to Elvis.
    13. At least 1 med cart in the hallway is up on concrete blocks.
    14. There's at least 3 different brands of chewing tobacco in the Pyxis.
