    They are trying to say "puss-like". But instead they are writing about a kitty cat... or a profane name for a body part...

    ha.

    Sounds like the nursing school I used to teach at. But hey, at 24K a head, the customer is always right. These same students would be promoted and not disciplined at all.

    well here's MY "I can't believe I just did that"

    A nurse asked me if I could help her pull a pt up in bed. I walked in and recognized the pt I had been assigned two weeks ago. She had been in for an infection on her foot. I asked her how her foot was doing and she said "good, it's gone" I replied w/ "Good, i'm glad!" As we were boosting the pt up I realized she didn't mean the INFECTION was gone she meant her FOOT was gone. Yeah...next time, don't ask questions.

    No she didn't just change a TAH post-op day 2 pt. bed leave it in the highest position and tell her to get back in and told the pt. to try even after the pt. asked for it to be lowered.

    Needless to say the pt. requested she not come back in her room that day and the entire group got kicked off the floor that day. (Not my group the following days group though)

    No she didn't...

    Just walk out of lecture, go in the hall and order her take out lunch, giving the guy directions to the room I might add...then when it came, jump up go out and get it and bring it back to class without even a second thought about it.........this was all during lecture

    ... find her pt bleeding like crazy with O2 sat of 80-whatever and... when the instructor asked her what her priority was, the student replied, "Change the sheets?"
    When the pt was taken care of, the instructor gave the student one last chance to redeem herself (heck, maybe the student was just freaked out and not thinking, but noooo).
    The instructor asked her again, "NOW, what was your priority?"
    The student replied, "Well, I guess it wasn't changing the sheets."
    Said student is no longer in our class.
    This was a second year student, BTW.

    OMG this happened with a classmate of mine. I picked her up one day and she brings a plastic cup of wine into my car and plunked it in the cupholder. I didn't know what to say. I spent the whole clinical trying to get my clinical instructor alone. Luckily that instructor ended up being the DON eventually so they got rid of her the key word being eventually

    Of course this was after she turned up drunk to theory several times and fled as the instructor tried to get close enough to smell her breath.

    To add to the list

    No she didn't just me to demonstrate assessment to her to get out of assessing a difficult patient.

    Even worse no she did say "Oh the O2 wasn't connected properly" as we are doing postmortum care on said patient.

    It's just like my medical terminology professor taught us when explaining the usage of the word "purulent": there is NO good way to chart the word "puss - y"!!
