If hospitals gave away awards for creativity, a certain nurse at a hospital in China would have got a gold medal. No, not for assisting a surgeon with her genius, but for sending across a message to a patient.

In a hilarious episode shared by Reddit user WaspDog, an international student was hospitalized in China and was scheduled to have surgery, the next day. However, the nurse who had to send across a piece of medical information to the patient, couldn’t speak English.

In a bid to convey the proper medical instructions, the nurse came up with an innovative idea. Taking up the pen and the paper, she decided to illustrate the message to the student. And here is the result.

Though most of you have figured it out, the piece of information says that the patient has surgery at 8 am the next morning and has been asked not to consume food and water tonight after 10 pm.

If this wasn’t funny enough, the interpretations by the users that followed, surely were.
