3 Nurses Go to Heaven
Three nurses sadly pass away. They rise up into heaven, and there they approach the gatekeeper to plead their case for entering paradise.
So the keeper points to the first nurse, who says: “I worked in an emergency room. I have treated a lot of people and have always done my best to help. And even though we sometimes lost patients, I still think I deserved to intervene.”
The gatekeeper glances at her file and admits her to heaven.
The second nurse then says, “I used to work in the operating room, assisting surgeons. It was a lot of stress and we lost a lot of people, but I always did my best.” The keeper glances at her file and motions her to enter.
“And you?” He asks the third nurse. “I was a case manager for an HMO. I worked with thousands of patients.” She answers confidently.
The gatekeeper takes a long and careful look at her file. He pulls out a calculator, quickly enters numbers, and occasionally returns to the woman’s file.
After a few minutes like this, the keeper looks up, smiles at her, and says: “Congratulations! You’ve been admitted to heaven… for five days!”
