A Doctor, a Nurse, and a CEO

A doctor, a nurse, and the top executive of an HMO have died and are in line together at the Pearly Gates.  St. Peter appears to speak with them and asks them what good they have done in their lives.

Old Doctor

Doctor: "I have devoted my life to the sick and needy and have had a part in caring for and healing thousands of people."

St. Peter: "That’s great.  Welcome to heaven.  And what about you?"

Nurse: "I have supported the Doctor and his patients my entire life as an adult, etc. ..."

St. Peter: "Wonderful.  Please proceed in with the Doctor.  And what about you?"

HMO Executive: "I was the president of a very large Health Maintenance Organization and was responsible for the healthcare of millions of people all over the country."

St. Peter: "Fine.  I guess you can come on in . . . but you can only stay two nights!"
