There have been times when my patients would be walking down the hall and have the notorious "haldol/thorazine shuffle", and at the same time they would be drooling (side effect as well), and their speech would be very slow and slurred. I swear it made me think that we had zombies walking the hallway.

My son played that one, it was the noises they made when they were shot,ewww!Ok, now we can tell just how "old school" zombie hunting nurses we are lol. I even remember this one!!!! Remember every Sat was Horror Day on TV. Back before you had to pay for your channels and used antennes!! Dont think I missed any of the zombie or vampire movies when they were on.
Remember "The Last Man on Earth" with Vincent Price? The "only survivor or a devastating world-wide plague" except for at night, when hordes of bloodthirsty undead attempt to thump and crash their way into his house. OMG!!
