Here's one for you all. Has this ever happened to any of you.
When working in a hospital, it was common practice to put green food coloring in the tube feeding solution of our tube fed patients. This was done so that we could tell if they were aspirating. I had a patient expire one time that had been on the green tube feedings. Minutes after her death, she began to turn a lovely shade of green.
I am not kidding about this. The family was very upset when they went in to view the body. They returned after the funeral to tell us that the undertaker had a terrible time preparing the body because of this. We later found out that a couple of other people had the same response with their death. We switched brands of food coloring and it stopped. I must say that in 12 years of hospital nursing, this was one of the most shocking experiences that I ever had. Course now, I think that is was pretty funny. Not from the families perspective, but from my shock and dismay.
