    This is funny - I didn't think it was possible to gross out nurses! I've tried to think of the "ethical" considerations that one poster questioned. I can't think of anything unethical about this, maybe I'm just obtuse.

    I don't find anything unethical about this either.

    Well, this is kinda yucko, but heck so is the idea of injecting horse urine into people for "weight loss". Also, if it works then go for it. Now there is no ethical problem in my opinion, just "idea" is revolting. They do blood transfusions so why not poop transfusions? :wink2:

    What do they say to the donor? "Take a dump in this jar and bring it back in the morning?" That's not something I would want to carry around in my pocketbook

    We had a patient in our SDU w/C diff and the doctors were thinking about doing this procedure on her. Said it would replace the normal flora and bacteria needed for digestion. Not sure if this would have worked, pt died before procedure was done. I cannot imagine how they would have collected the stool needed or instilled it into the receiving patient. Sounds like a shi**y deal to me. LOL
