    silly people. you can also try stuffing newspaper in your shoes overnight. It helps dry them out. Also, always buy two pairs (at least) when you shop, then alternate them, so they can dry out.

    I had an obese woman call on the call light one evening. Went in to see what she needed. She was in the bathroom, and needed me to "wipe her butt".....jeez. I gave that up on my kids when they were potty trained, say about 3 yrs old? I asked her, how do you do this when you are at home? Answer: "oh, my 7 year old does it for me" Talk about child abuse.....yuck.

    Thank you for making me laugh after a rough night! I did OB triage all night so I had my share of stanky booty.

    One thing I have learned from doing OB so long - those people on Jerry Springer? They are REAL! I see a couple of candidates every night.........

    Quick story about the dirtiest man I ever saw. I got a phone call from a cardilologist to go check on one of his more stubborn pts at home. When I got there, the pt was covered in filth (cow poop and mud) and stank to high heaven. He was in severe CHF and his kidneys hadn't made urine in over 24 hrs but the pt struggled through his chores taking care of his cows. He refused to go to the hospital. After about an hour of rangling with him, he admitted that he didn't want to go because he was "too dirty." It took an hour of scrubbing with the help of family who had arrived to make him sparkle, put him in a clean suit and off he went. He had dignity. I'll never forget him.

    Here was a man who should've been in an ICU out caring for his animals...farming is hard, dirty work. He was admitted to the CCU immediately and died the next day.


    People who think nothing of going ANYWHERE, filthy, amaze me.

    Illinois to Oklahoma to Texas, to Arizona, to Washington State. I have lived all these places. Stinky butts are rank all over and rest assured, no one state "takes the cake" from where I sit. Gross is gross no matter what state in which it resides and nasty people live all over the place, trust me.

You ever have a pt. so funky you go home and the smell is lingering in the lining of your nostrils? You have to light an incense and let the smoke fill your nose! Okay, I've never done that BUT I HAVE wafted the aroma from a freshly lit blue"candle scents by glade" into my nostrils
    for 5-10 minutes. Depending of the strength of the funk.

    Have you tried irrigating your nose when that happens? You can get an olive tip nozzle for a water pik, and use salt water. That'll clean out your sinuses!

    I thought this topic was about stinky butts....cigarette butts. My facility allows employees to smoke outside. They come back in reeking of cigarette smoke. Wish they would either make 'em shower before coming in or outlaw smoking all together.::imbar

    Aussiea are weird - we know this because the rest of the world tells us so. The cultural "norm" over here is to have at LEAST one bath a day preferrably two. This is not so in Europe. I had the misfortune to be standing on a European train in the middle of summer. Packed TIGHT!!!! To my left I was being assulted by the WORST halitosis that ever reeked out of a mouth to my right - well my nose was at the level of this guys armpit (he was holding a strap) and lets say HE wasn't an Aussie. Edged around only to be confronted by hair that UGH! - well she didn't have a nit problem - they would have all slid off on the grease.

    I had to get OUT but nearly added my own contribution by tossing my cookies. YECH! I will never never ride on a crowded European train again.

    SEE? You don't have to be a nurse!!!

    Heck, with all the patients on tube feeds in my unit, I feel like I'm on permenant..

    POOP PATROL!

    I've learned from this thread that poop patroll isn't so bad, because their bottoms get cleaned!!! LOL!
