    Hey,Dr. Doug you forgot to add a inside door block so no one can get in to interrupt your sleep also add a crash helmet so if you fall off the gurney, you won’t crack open your head.

    For bald guys who can’t escape to a bed/floor/gurney and must sleep sitting up with their heads on their arms, have them paint a face on their chrome dome so they look awake.
    Poor interns, they are so abused!
