How do you remove a nail from someone's head?

So how do you remove a nail from someone's head? How about by using a claw hammer. Don't try this at home kids.

In Shawnee, Kansas, George Chandler, 60, and his friend were working on a ladder when a nailgun hose became tangled and caused the gun to fire a nail deep into George's head.

George told his friend he didn't know where the nail had gone but felt stinging on his head. When his friend checked his head he could see that the 2.5 inch nail was driven deep into Chandler's head. Probably a good thing they didn't try and pull it out themselves. They called an ambulance and he was rushed to a hospital.

At the hospital nothing fancy was done, the doc drug out the trusty toolbox and used a common claw hammer to pull the nail out. Paging Tim Taylor.

I wonder how this will show up on poor George's hospital bill. Will they call it some special procedure or will they just bill him for the claw hammer and charge him the $5.99 you can buy one for at Home Depot.
