    If you know your tongue depressor from your pulse oximeter you'll be in the running for a prize on our game show Hospital Lingo. Patients of any age can play. All you need is a phone and a Hospital Lingo sheet from the ward clerk. It's just like playing Bingo, but with all the weird and wonderful things found in hospital.
