Hey health enthusiasts! Guess what? It's Friday the 13th! 🎉
Before you dodge black cats or avoid ladders, let's take a whimsical detour and explore some of healthcare's quirkiest superstitions. Ready for some fun? Let’s dive in! 🏊♀️
1. Hospital Floors and the Missing 13th 🏥 Ever noticed how some hospitals jump from the 12th to the 14th floor? It's all in good fun (and a tad superstition) to skip the number 13!
2. “Quiet” is the Forbidden Word 🤫 Ask any ER professional, and they'll tell you: never claim it’s a “quiet” day. Saying the 'Q' word might just jinx it into being the opposite!
3. No White Shoes After Labor Day? 👟 An old nursing school superstition suggests wearing white shoes after Labor Day could bring bad luck. Fashionistas might argue, though!
4. Full Moons and Busy Nights 🌕 A full moon night in the healthcare world? Prepare for an unusual number of emergencies and unique cases. Even if it’s just a coincidence, it’s a popular belief in many ERs!
In the grand scheme of things, Friday the 13th is just another day. But it’s these playful superstitions that add a sprinkle of fun and intrigue to our otherwise hectic healthcare lives.
Whether you’re superstitious or just a little-stitious (see what we did there? 😉), here’s wishing you a fantastic, lucky, and utterly uneventful Friday the 13th!
