Holy Abscess! Not for the faint of heart

  1. 3 This is quite a large abscess, kind of gross too


    My son saw this and asked if it was real? I said it looks real to me. What do you think?

    Have any of you nurses seen an abscess this bad? Worse?

    I warned you that it was gross. I was thinking the same thing, that tray was getting pretty full

    Love it! I would've paid good money to be the one that was squishing it out with their hand!

    Does it make me look bad that I had to share this with all my nurse friends???

    Right now, here, at home, watching this, I want to barf.
    But I'm pretty sure that if I was at work and saw this, I would be like "Huh, they need another bucket, I'll go grab one." without a problem.

    I actually gagged and coughed while watching that.

    Can you imagine the stench?

    Think they'll need to put in a penrose?
