I have been sitting here, for a few moments, scanning my memory for "i can't believe a nurse did that" stories,
after over 3 decades of nursing,
all over the nation, in every kind of unit you can name,
i have very very few of them. <---- Which now that i think about that fact,
is kind of amazing, really, isn't it?
OH, i can recall a few inappropriate remarks here or there,
or a few poor decisions,
but, i can't come up with a lot "unbelievable"
types of stories, or, at least, i can't yet....
A few that came to mind, was a coworker addicted to drugs stealing the drugs at work, but, that one is kinda sad, really,
and one where a mentally ill coworker had secretly taken the code cart into an empty room to hook her own self up to the monitor to see her own heart rhythm, she was always doing odd things, but, moving the code cart to a hidden area, without telling anyone seemed off the hook to us.
lol, i'll have to keep thinking!! surely, i'd have more than those 2 stories....i'll have to think some more on this.
well, my reply here, on this other thread, reply #5,
is probably one f the most unbelievable moments i've ever seen in nursing, ha ha, and it was ME!
I do think, the iv pole may have been moved even an inch, too, by the crowd around that bed in the flurry of the code, which helped cause that whole nightmare.
^ definitely that's
one for the books, eh? Happened over 20 years ago, it is still a stunning story, imo.
To the OP, yeah, i know what you meant about titles of posts,
not always matching up well to the actual content of the post.
