    A friend of mine was doing his first night of ...internship on an ER rotation in Kansas. There was a thunderstorm that night -- thunder and lightning lighting up the sky! He was at the reception desk of the ER, staring at the rain through the sliding glass doors. A lightning bolt lit up the parking lot, and he saw an incredibly macbre sight! A man came walking through the rain, carrying a limp, unconscious woman. But the truly bizarre thing was he appeared to have a hatchet protruding from his skull.

    Yup! The guy got all likkered up and decided to try his hatchet-throwing skills by throwing at a target affixed to a cement wall in his basement. The hatchet hit the wall, bounced back, and embedded the sharp edge in the guy's skull. Frightened, he went upstairs to get his wife to drive him to the ER. She took one look at him and passed out. So he picked her up and put her in his pick-up truck to drive her to the ER.

    Seems that the hatchet went right between the two lobes. It was successful removed and the guy was discharged without any discernable brain damage. (And ADDITIONAL brain damage!)
    This is very funny! :chuckle :chuckle

    Many years ago a nurse told me a story that I will never forget!

    While working ER one night a man was wheeled in by a friend to the desk. The man was wearing a long trench coat. When the nurse asked him what he needed he said, "Can you take this off?" He opened the trench coat to reveal a duck in his lap. Seems he found this duck attractive and was being intimate with it. :chuckle They wheeled him to surgery with the duck quacking all the way. Unfortunatly the duck did not survive.

    So just remember it's never a good idea to **** a duck!
    JEEEEEZ!! What Next?!?!?!?!?!

    This is a family tale as oppossed to a work tale. When I was in high school my mom ruptured the tendon on her middle finger. Of course it was Christmas Eve night and we couldn't miss Mass. She must have forgotten that it was splinted straight up and was giving everybody the bird as she walked back from Communion. My brother and I were purple trying not to laugh. Mom's face looked like this when we told her.:imbar We, of course, looked like this: It's now a classic story passed down to the kids!
    Now, my face is like this...
    Isn't it wonderful when you have ammunition against a parent?

    Believe it or not I was trying to teach my husband to fly fish. He insisted on standing beside me. When I was trying to show him how to pull the line,
    As I was pulling the wind caught the line and it caught in in the NOSE of all places. Try taking your husband to the ER to get the hook out of his nose. Too bad it didn't have a ring on it

    One night a man was brought into the ER. His face was swollen and he was holding his butt at the same time. He would not sit in a wheel chair.

    Into the trauma room he went he lay on his side while his wife explained that they had been at an outdoor show and her husband went to the port-a-john. When he sat doun he sat on a brown recluse, when the spider bit him he jumped up so fast that he hit his face on the door of the john and broke his jaw.. The rest as they say is history. Can you just see how the insurance was filed. Man bit by spider and breaks jaw.

    Probably the following answer will help "I am sorry Ms, that is outside the bounds of my professional responsibility. The service you requested was not part of the nursing school's training."

    Or he just could have replied " Sorry Ma'am, you're insurance won't cover that."

    A nominee for "funniest" injury...

    women came in with cc of nipple pain. Turns out she decided to get her nipples pierced for her 65th birthday. Considering the age and nature of the complaint, everyone thought it was quite amusing
    Ew gross! Wouldn't that irritate her knees? :chuckle -Andrea

    ok when I was little I for some dumb reason wanted to be hurt - I would do things like put on ace bandages on the school bus and tell everyone I sprained my wrist. I have no idea why I did this. Anyways when I was 7 I was playing outside and thought I would "fall down". So i fake fell - I mean I was just walking around the yard and fell. Imagine my surprise when my leg really started to hurt so off to the ER. Turns out my "fall" tore ligaments in my leg. I wore a hot pink cast for 6 weeks and got all kinds of attention.:chuckle Not long ago I told my mom about this - she didnt think it was too funny!
    OMG, I used to do the same stupid thing!!! I 'fell' off the couch one day, pretended to fall on the phone beneath it, and I said I broke my rib. The x ray showed nothing. I used to go to school with those stupid ace bandages wrapped around one limb or another.sounds like a deep rooted psychological problem, now that I think about it.........:uhoh21: I havent confessed to my mom yet, however........ And I never was "lucky" enough to have a real genuine cast... wow I would have LOVED that.........I just realized ,I never actually voiced this to anybody, ever........too funny

    I know of a gentlemen who discovered his latex allergy in a rather, uh, memorable way (hint: not gloves.) I really can't imagine how unpleasant that would actually be ...

    about 10 years ago my wife and i were getting a bit frisky in the kitchen and we were both naked. she grabbed for my special purpose and by pure reflexes i jumped away and caught my scrotum - that's right - scrotum, on a kitchen cabinet and tore a small hole in it. well, thinking i would never have any more children, i called the er and told the nurse what had happened. i could tell she was trying no to laugh and told me there was nothing she could do unless i came in. so i did. after a few pokes and prods i was sent home with nothing more than a bandage. a small bandage at that. needless to say once my wife reported my er trip to the relatives i got all kinds of testicular jokes! but, everything's fine now. the boys healed well.
    michael... your wife told this story to the relatives???!!! thats even funnier than what actually happened!!!!!
