Some haunting things doctors hear:

"Doctor, why is Mr. Smith's blood pressure so low?"

"Doctor, your patient hasn't had a bowel movement in three weeks. Could you disimpact him?"

In the patient with insulin-dependent diabetes: "Blood sugar? Why do I need to check his blood sugar?"

As you find your patient with severe chronic obstructive pulmonary disease moribund on rounds: "It was just a little sleeping pill."

"Doctor, what are those little bugs in his hair?"

"Doctor, I saw a sad face next to your name on"

"I know you guys have been incredibly productive lately, but we're sorry guys, we have to cut your pay 10% next year."
Happy Halloween!
