Five tiny Santas, all in a row.

Hospitals are always difficult places to be (if you're there, it means something isn't going well). Around the holidays, being in the hospital can get exponentially worse: No one wants to spend their Christmas morning in a hospital bed, but unfortunately, sometimes it can't be avoided. That's why we're glad that some hospitals have awesome staff members like these: They make the hospital a charming, festive place to be, even with limited resources. The hospital employees below definitely know how to bring the Christmas cheer, and you'll be totally surprised at how many uses they find for latex gloves and bedpans.
