Overheard at Auckland Hospital

I overheard this at Auckland Hospital’s emergency ward last night. The patient had just be resuscitated after blacking out and the nurse asked how he was, his reply;

I thank the good Lord that I live 3 kms from Auckland Hospital and not in Wanganui or Hawke’s Bay

The same patient was also heard to say to the nurse that now he knew why ADHB was saving so much money, they were only using liquids instead of feeding him. Of course he had neglected to observer the NBM sign behind him, the drip, the bag of blood, the heart monitor, the oxygen mask, the automatic BP thingy, the stent in both hands and the one in one arm. I think we can forgive him.
