    So do you think "homeowners" insurance covers that?

    Ok...I know that was in really bad taste...
    Sorry...

    But think about it...

    "Bump behind clitoris" that is what the triage sheet said when the chick checked in at 0500. Wasn't my patient so I didn't get to hear if she found her meatus or felt that first wart erupt.

    If I had a nickle....it was funniest when a former employee came into our ED saying they use to be a nurse there...turns out they had been an escort/transport person, his primary nurse looked him dead in the eye and said, "yep, thats the same thing." :uhoh21:
    :chuckle Seriously had a patient's family member claim that they worked in the medical professional. I could overhear this family member asking the RN about the antibiotic scheduling and going on and on and on. Then the family member said in a firm and authoritative voice "I work in a veterinary office!!"....coming to find out this woman was a SECRETARY at an animal hospital :chuckle To this day, we will joke around and say "I work in a veterinary office"(in a sarcastic tone) if we are pretending to be know-it alls!

    "Spotamat Jeeezus" = spinal meningitis
    "he fell out" = fainted
    Patient "my friend has a mouse inside" -RN "inside what?" - Patient "we were having sex and the mouse can't get out!!!"

    And I'm sure that there hasn't been a seasoned ED nurse out there who hasn't heard "There's no way that I could be pregnant!" upon hearing the results of their pg test.

    There's no way that I could be pregnant!
    a) I'm on birth control
    b) We used b/c almost every time
    The list goes on and on and on...
