Hospitals are scary, and they're not fun.
A bunch of Israeli hospitals (25 of them) would like to turn at least half of that around — and have employed Medical Clowns to Patch Adams the place up a little bit!
We're not sure this would work here in the U.S., mainly because we're aware of how terrifying clowns really are (Pennywise, anyone?).
And get this — it isn't just in the children's ward. An Israeli study published last year in the journal Fertility and Sterility found that a woman's chances of getting pregnant after in-vitro fertilization rose from 20.2 percent to 36.4 if a clown was present immediately after the obstetrician implanted a fertilized egg.
Who knows. Probably voodoo.
Anyway, would U like to have a clown all up in your medical biznasss?
