Hypoglycemic nicknames

  1. 0 We've been having a lot of hypoglycemic patients being brought to us by the EMS, I was thinking of giving them nicknames whenever we try to report to other nurses what's coming from the EMS. Maybe "Bitter Blood"? "Splenda"? Any other suggestions?

    How 'bout "we have a hypoglycemic patient en route to room xxx". Why would you need a nickname?

    Ya that's what I say. I would be irate if I came in and heard 'got Splenda bed 4' and it was me or my family

    That just seems extremely unprofessional to do something like that. Stop and think how you would feel if you were in the same position? I acquired a nickname that spread from neurosurgery> rads>ED but I was well known so I didn't mind

    If you have to ask on a nursing forum to come up with "spontaneously funny nicknames" then you might want to reconsider the whole idea.

    O.M.G. Really? No, this must be a prank.

    Lol, where did everyone's sense of humor go? Ah, you all need to lighten up, take things less seriously.... Bitter blood is funny.. Just not in front of the patient!
