Best collection I've seen in a long time, and I've been a nurse for 23 years! I've always thought hospital transcriptionists probably have to wear Depends to type this stuff up. I especially like the breasts that were equal and equally reactive to light - great mental image there ;)

When I was still working I'd see things like that now and then, all you could do was shake your head...some people never saw what was right in front of them!!!
