If you like to relax with video games, check out Hospital Hustle.
The star is Sarah, a recent nursing grad who can’t get a job in California, so she hightails it to a small hospital in Arkansas.
Sarah runs around doing everything from bringing prescriptions to different triage centers to taking X-rays, administering treatments and assisting in the operating room.
See if you can treat all the patients (and save their lives), run the ER on a budget and outrace malpractice suits.
Chances are you’re going to be good at this game. Or give it to your kids—maybe they’ll have a better appreciation for what your day is like!
You can download Hospital Hustle here (available on Mac and PC).
