If you’re currently in the hospital, I’m sorry. If you’re visiting someone in the hospital, I’m sorry, too, but I’m sorry to a lesser extent. You’re healthy. What do you expect? Regardless, the hospital is a pretty boring and sad place, so enjoy these pastimes while you’re there for a break from all the medicine stuff.
Pull the Plugs
This is one of my all time favorites. There’s all sorts of doohickies and thingamajigs that require electricity to function, and you have no idea how hilarious it is to watch doctors and nurses freak out when you yank the cord out of the socket. They’ll shout things like, “What the hell is wrong!” and “Is this guy still breathing?” while you watch from a safe distance and laugh at their confusion. It’s even more fun if the machine you unplug is keeping a patient alive!
Sample the Drugs
Hospitals are chock full of all kinds of medicines, and if you’re a thrill seeker this could be a great way for you to pass the time. There are some drugs that can make you all high and dopey like opioid painkillers, while other medications, like epinephrine can give you a burst of adrenaline. Just sneak into people’s rooms and pop a pill or stick yourself a needle. All that’s left to do then is wait for it to kick in and see what happens!
Play Dress Up
If you look hard enough, you can always find a spare set of scrubs or maybe even a white coat if you’re really lucky. After you’ve put on the dress wear of a medical professional, grab a clipboard and head into patients’ rooms pretending that you’re a member of the hospital staff. You can tell them whatever you want! Terminally ill patient looking down? Lie and say that he’s cured! A lady came in with appendicitis? Look frantic and tell her she needs open heart surgery as soon as possible! Cause as much chaos as you’d like… you’re a doctor now, after all.
Steal Prescription Pads
This one isn’t so much of a fun activity to have as it is a way to make a ton of money when you leave the hospital, but the excitement of pickpocketing a doctor for his scripts is something that can be an awesome time. The real fun of this starts when you’re back out in society, though, because now you can make a buttload of money selling prescriptions to drug addicted businessmen. It’s a very lucrative venture.
