I lol at the stud who quit because he had to empty a bedpan... - Page 2Register Today!
- Aug 30, '12 by Bella54Quote from tenjunaI'm assuming this is semester one of nursing. It happens. It's the moment of truth the dreaded code brown. We had a few drop at this point to.Had to share...there are (were) 4 guys in my class of 30. We have already had 10 people drop out after they found out exactly how much was involved with class and clinicals.
If that wasn't bad enough, within an hour of starting rounds last night, we had this alpha male go squeamish. Now try to imagine the stereotypical stud muffin...perfect hair, chiseled face, probably works out like it's a religion, basically a babe magnet...ok so this guy is standing there bedside with this LOL, and she made quite the BM mess in her bed. There was a very nicely filled bedpan sitting on the bed, and this guy is standing there looking like he was going to hock up a spleen.
He absolutely refused to touch said bedpan, and in fact decided right then and there to quit the program. I didn't even bother to hide my amusement, actually I rubbed it in as much as I could before he walked out the door. Ain't I a stinker?
I am pretty sure he was only in nursing school because he believed all the nurse porno. Ahh, one less moron, thank you nursing gods.
- Sep 1, '12 by CrazedMy first code brown I spent my lunch break asking, "Do I smell like poo? I swear I still smell it. Is it on me somewhere?"
I was paranoid for the next two weeks that I still smelled like poo. I have this feeling like the stink particles just nestle somewhere in your skin.
Took my older kid to the doctor today and there was a little girl, maybe five or so, who just yacked all over mom, the floor, the trashcan, the chair, and I had to laugh when my teenager said, "So um, when you're a nurse do you have to watch people puke?"
- Sep 1, '12 by MrsFrancisI had a girl drop out of my CNA class too.
I was like "Did you not read the job description before enrolling? Its quite clear what our job is."
I think that was probably a hurtful experience for a resident. How would you feel if you couldnt help yourself, and made a mess? She/He is probably already feeling embarrassed, then Mr. Macho pulls that crap? Grrrrrr....
- Sep 1, '12 by andrewschultzIf I were you, I wouldn't have been so immature about it. Everyone has a weak spot. Unfortunately, that was his. You will find yours at clinical eventually. How would you feel if you were berated for grossing out? Remember compassion? Apply it!
- Sep 2, '12 by tenjunaQuote from andrewschultzEh I can't argue with that you are of course correct...but still it was the funniest thing I had seen in a long while it couldn't be helped. Having been through 2 wars, I doubt I will see anything that will gross me out though but I understand the comment. I guess you had to be there *shrug*If I were you, I wouldn't have been so immature about it. Everyone has a weak spot. Unfortunately, that was his. You will find yours at clinical eventually. How would you feel if you were berated for grossing out? Remember compassion? Apply it!
- Sep 5, '12 by NovoI don't find this amusing or funny. Just because he was dressed a certain way you automatically though of him as a "stud"? You sound like you feel superior because you have a higher threshold for dealing with feces and I'm not quite sure if that's a good thing. When I first started I could not even see stool without puking and gagging but I've learned to deal with it, maybe that's what he was going through? Either way please grow up.
- Sep 6, '12 by futurenurseclarkI do find It funny, but i also wonder how I will deal with "code brown" when i am faced with it for the first time. I have a pretty weak stomach, but my hard work will not be overshadowed by caca. You said two wars? Thank you for your service! I have 2 brothers that have been deployed, one brother went 3 times, the other once. I am forever grateful for yall's sacrifice.
