Gurney

(En español: Camilla con ruedas)

Say: gur-nee

A gurney is a hospital bed with wheels that makes it easy to move patients around. Gurneys can get you to all sorts of places in a hospital - especially from an operating room to the room you'll sleep in. When you're on a gurney, someone will push it around for you, so just lie back and relax!
