Foreign Student Hospitalized In China Gets Note From Artistic Nurse Who Doesn’t Speak English, And The Comments Are Hilarious

‘Lost in translation’ language mix-ups and misunderstandings can make for hilarious travel anecdotes – but not when they happen at a hospital. An international student was hospitalized in China and fell under the care of a nurse that didn’t speak English. Understanding the importance of getting the proper medical information across to her patient, the artistic nurse used some creativity to draw him a detailed note that used some pretty frighting graphics.

Reddit user under the username of WaspDog, uploaded the note and internet users went wild. To her credit if you know the context her message is clear: the patient has surgery tomorrow and tonight they can’t have food or water after 10 pm. But of course, that didn’t stop people from coming up with their own hilarious interpretations. Scroll down below to see what people came up with and don’t forget to upvote your favs!
