    Introduce myself as working in the "NEUROLOGY" department to my UROLOGY pre-op patient (seeing as I work all services) and, without missing a beat, start the pre-op interview ... until I saw the look on the pt's face ... :stone ... I guess I was the one who needed some help 'up there' today ... :chuckle ... pt genuinely believed he was about to have "wrong site" surgery in a big way, wow ... :uhoh21:

    Insulin has to be checked by 2 nurses, how did that get through? Glad to hear the patient was ok though!
    At some hospitals, they don't require a second nurse to check insulin. That's the case at the hospital I'm at this semester.

    No she did not have her cell phone on in class and answer it on the second ring DURING LECTURE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    No she did not have her cell phone on during lecture three times in the past month, answer it, and proceed to tell her boyfriend she was in lecture and what we were learning about that day!!!!!!! :roll :roll

    She hung up quickly after the instructor shot her a "oh no you did not just answer that phone in class" look! :chuckle :chuckle

    Now she keeps it on vibrate- but keeps it on her desk instead of in her pocket or bag :uhoh21: :uhoh21: It sounds even louder when it vibrates on the desk than when it would ring!

    No she did not...

    Place her stethoscope on the right side of the abdomen when listening for the "whoosh" while checking NG tube placement.

    This was me on Thursday. What in the world was I thinking? Maybe her stomach had moved to the other side? No wonder I didn't hear it! LOL

    ....say to a patient's wife...."No, he's not a doctor, but he plays one on tv!!"

    One of my wittier moments in clinical-too many commercials for me. :selfbonk: These posts are way too funny!!!

    Check the patients respirations by grabing her wrist and looking at the clock.

    My other friend in OB, asked the patient " how is your lochia?" The patient said. " my what?" LOL........She should have said, "how is your bleeding?"

    Tell our instructor he didn't know how to make a bed (senior) EEks!

    No she didn't...

    ...tell a group of psych patients that another nursing student (male) was a doctor. (she wanted them to leave her alone, which they did when they thought a doctor was on the floor)

    ...get caught making out with a resident(doctor, not patient), during clinicals, at the hospital. What is worse, she was dating a resident, but one she got caught with was not him!:imbar

    ....ask the instructor "what do that does" in reference to the antibiotic ointment being applied to a wound.:uhoh21:

    No she did not confuse pediatric surgery to insert tympanostomy tubes with tubal ligation surgery. Not that I know anyone who did that, of course.

    No she did not .... just blow her nose directly into her hands (without a tissue) ... not once but twice ... during my stats class.... and then ask to "borrow" my pencil.

    No she did not.... take the "dart method" of giving an injection literally, and throw a needle at her patient!

    (Incidentally, this student was asked to leave the nursing program :chuckle )

    but....thats how i do it. granted i hold their wrist, count their pulses first then continue to hold their wrist and look at the clock every so often while watching their chest rise and fall.

    you do count people's respirations by holding the pt's wrists and looking at the clock. alot of health care professionals do it that way. its so that the patient doesnt know youre counting their respirations and change their breathing pattern.

    pretty slick, eh?

    Your right. I was taught that technique in LPN school 15 years ago for the exact same reason...so the patient doesn't know your counting their respirations.

    No she did not...blurt out to the (male) doctor when watching an infant circumcision, "That's the first uncircumcized male I've ever seen!"

    Yes, that was me. I felt like such an idiot. I'm sure that was far more information about my personal life than the doctor ever wanted to know.
