    I'm always losing pens too.. not just an Aussie thing! I don't like to keep them in my pockets because, pen length being equal to pocket width, they get stuck. Lately I end up stabbing them into my bun, then forgetting I did it - remember when somebody asks why I have horns.

    Oh no I forgot what I never can remember...oh yeah.. I never can remember the date ..it keeps changing and I have to ask my patients. I only hope they are more oriented than I am.

    To clear out my pumps at the end of the day. I've just started writing PUMP in big red letters on my Kardex so this will help me to remember at the end of the shift. So far I'm doing a little better.

    Got a day off, then the next day I came in and somehow went around for about two hours thinking it was still February!

    Thank goodness I didn't have to do any NIHSS. :imbar

    The worst is when I call coworkers by the wrong names. I had two of them mixed up the other morning, and the funniest thing about it was that patients corrected me.

    It's so weird that I can recall the most complex scientific stuff, but then come in wearing two different socks or forgetting things like patients' names.:spin:

    What is one thing that you just cannot seem to remember?
    to open the door wide and leave it open when i go in to do assessments - i have been working in a prison and its so different - after 2 months plus they still have to buzz down and say "open that door wide - now" - so used to giving total privacy !! not so in prison - safety first. oops.
