- Jan 24 by BrandonLPNI work with a nurse who pronounces the "p" in pneumonia. I don't correct her because it's pretty funny.
I've also heard this nurse tell a resident that metformin is an "insulin pill". I'd like to be able to say she was just "dumbing it down" for the resident's benefit but, alas, this was not the case. She really thinks it's an oral form of insulin....

During school I had a preceptor in the surgery department frequently refer to the OR room. Really? Operating room room? Drove me nuts. Same for ER room or ED department. Aaahhhh!! Lol

- Jan 24 by danabsnJust heard this at the pharmacy....."can someone help me find the blood pressure cups". Hmmmm. I'd like to see one of those too.
- Ah.... busted. But sometimes it's as hard to teach things as it is to learn them.
