What are some of the hardest jobs in the world? My answer would be pretty much anybody that works in a hospital especially doctors and nurses. I have to give the utmost respect to anybody that chooses to work in a hospital for a career. Being around sick and dying individuals on an everyday basis has to both emotionally and physically draining. To make the job a little less stressful, employees in hospitals have come up with their own terms and words to describe patients, treatments and diagnoses. All of these are on the humorous side and make the job a little more tolerable. So, enjoy these humorous terms…
