Funny "Code" Last Night

  1. 32
    So last night I responded to a code called in the spinal cord injury center. We (code team) arrived in the room to find a bewildered little old man, obviously not in arrest, sitting on a comode asking why on earth all these people where flooding into his room.
    Turns out his nurse had called out to the new grad nurse at the nursing station:

    "CAN YOU GET A COMODE?"

    The new grad heard

    "CAN YOU CALL A CODE!"

    The new gad had called for the code and then went about her duties. The patient's nurse and the patient had no idea a code had been called until the code team came running into the room.

    hahahahahaha poor things! That must have been slightly traumatic and astonishing for the patient! I hate when words get jumbled together and you think someone says something other than what they said.

    Interesting.

    I once got a protein shake for an RN who asked me for a "boost"

    So she called a code and then went about her business?? Wasn't even curious about a code? Didn't bring the crash cart in?? This is funny and sad!
