(Newser) – If you've ever been admitted to the hospital and thought, "Man, these nurses really aren't as attractive as the ones on TV," apparently you should visit Sweden's Stockholm South General.

The nursing manager claims the hospital simply wanted to "stick out a bit with our advertising campaign" and get some attention—and the plan worked, the Local reports.

The hospital also explains that the ad's wording came directly from a satisfied patient, who was quoted in a newspaper praising the facility's "TV-series hot" and "Söder hipster" nurses.

We want a nurse who is qualified and good at their job, regardless of looks." (Read more strange stuff stories.)
