    We had a very obese mentally unstable women brought into the ER. This nurse told me that the lady started to move uncomfortable on the bed so the nurse pulled her over to see if she needed cleaned up; well, it wasn't BM that was "smiling" at her, but the woman's upper denture! She evidently had it stuffed almost all the way in! To this day we still give that nurse a rough time about that! :chuckle

    Ok, this one came to me from another nurse, but I'll share it with you....

    A man and his partner had gotten drunk (and/or high) and had poured cement into the rectum of one. Well, you guessed it....they passed out!

    And now that you're all waiting with bated breath.....yes, cement WILL harden in the rectum and yes, it does require surgery for removal and yes, it did cause significant damage!

    You just have to ask yourself, "At what point did this seem like a good idea?"??? LOL
    That's what drugas will get ya

    ...I totally believe that there are some situations that it is ok to laugh, vomit, gag whatever.
    Absolutely! Nurses are human! With each repeated incident, I'm sure the shock value decreases dramatically. So until we become completely desensitized (does that ever happen?), I believe it's okay to "laugh, vomit, gag or whatever" just as long as it's not infront of the patient! I can't imagine what some of those ER patients were feeling (besides uncomfortable ).

    I worked in long term care and we had a patient that was put on a strict diet... she weighed nearly 300 lbs. Her family were the noncompliant ones. They would bring her snacks in all the time. One night before her "weigh day" she was complaining of vaginal burning. So the 3 of us... rolled her over and we found her recent snack... a 3 peice chicken snack... taters and roll included... all stuffed "in my pocket" she giggled. Maybe we should get this one and the one with the dentures together...

    As an EMT I go to continuing ed. At one of the symposiums I went to they were showing x-rays of items that ended up in "strange" places. Things like mayo jars in the rectum, pop bottles, ect. But the one that got to me was when they showed an x-ray of a mans bladder, there was a ball of wire inside it. I will let you figure out how it got there. :imbar

    1-13 inch dildo in guys rectum, pt did not survive
    2-13 inch x-mas candle inserted, perfed bowel and rested just under the liver, barely survived after bout with sepsis.
    I just must know what the cause of death was on pt #1, and exactly what would one tell the family?

    Prudish? No Larry, I'm not prudish. I just think humans having sexual relations with animals is wrong...
    Sorry you didn't get my "positional" joke.

    But lighten up a bit. Much of this funny!

    Maybe someone previously told her she was "talking out of her a$$," and then she arrived at the thought of where to place her teeth.

    Makes sense!
