8 Quirky Types of Hospital Visitors

6. The Groupies

Groupies at the hospital are the patient’s personal fan base, always there for emotional support and positivity. Their dedication surpasses all bounds as they hang around from dawn ‘til dusk, catering to the patient’s every whim. Whether it’s cheering the patient through a rough recovery period, or holding her hand as the doctor delivers some bad news, the Groupies are like mountains, steadfast and unshakeable to the core.
