Broken iPhone? Take It To An iHospital (VIDEO)

It's happened to the best of us. Your iPhone slips out of your pocket into a puddle. You drop your iPad and the glass screen shatters.

Damaged Apple products is such a big problem it's created a whole subindustry: iHospitals, where you can bring your sick devices for professional repair.

The unique thing is, these facilities actually function like real hospitals. The staff wears scrubs, there's a triage area and even an "operating room."

The trend serves as an alternative to Apple's AppleCare insurance, and can save clumsy Mac addicts a buck -- to help save up for the latest sleek device, of course.

Check out the video above.
