    This is a very funny story and thank you for being able to share it and laugh at the situation, one which surely would have made others angry. From the tone of your writing I gather that this event happened somewhere in the south... Is this correct? I remember a CNA that I used to work with who wore tight white scrubs and the brightest underwear she could find. I have also had medical students and residents who wore colorful underwear or NO underwear (with things hanging around, if you get my drift) who I had to advice to "put some clothes on".

    I worked with a nurse back in the 80's at the time when eatable underwear came out on the market. Do any of you remember these things? In any case, she went shopping and found a bargain on underwear and bought several pairs. One day at work she gets splashed with something and she goes to the restroom to wash herself off and to her dismay her underwear was gone. It had dissolved. All she had left was the elastic. She was not aware of the kind of undies she had purchased. We all had a good laugh.

    This is the great thing about nursing. We have funny stories to tell.

    Where are all the "mercy killer" nurses with patients like these? Someone should have put a pillow over her face long ago. She's just taking up space and money. :-)

    JK--little dark humor from someone who's had a lot of these kind of patient's lately....
