We've all been to a hospital at least a couple of times in our lives, and those visits are never, never pleasant. Not only you have to answer a bunch of very personal questions, get poked and prodded but also often endure a great deal of pain, which probably have brought you there in the first place. Nurses and doctors, knowing all this either try to ignore your whining entirely and just do their job, while others try to add some optimism to the situation by making you laugh with hospital puns, funny stories and various sorts of jokes. This list that you'll find below are real stories about the second category of hospital staff and their ingenious ways of keeping patients' spirit up.

From doctors who probably have a Ph.D. in trolling to patients who are taking it rather well and nurses spending their graveyard shifts in very nonconformist ways, the hospital turns out to be an excellent source for funny jokes. So, scroll down, say 'ahhhh' and breathe deep, because you're going to need all the oxygen that you can get for laughing at these funny things found in hospitals!

Leeches and maggots are excellant. Maggots in particular are a superb treatment for removing gangrenous flesh - not that I would want it used on myself

The maggot treatment is true - but not for the squeamish. They bandage them into an gangrenous wound and they eat all the rotten flesh away

It's still hard to believe leeches are used for medical stuff. I know it's useful, but tbh I'd rather die than have a leech on me

Better than the 1-10 scale where you only base it on the worst pain you've experienced. What if you haven't had much before or are worn down by having serious pain a lot? I've always found this really difficult as pain from a broken bone is a different type of pain to, say, nerve pain.
