A code dummy in bed for practice
That they've fallen out of bed or off of the toilet!
Blood...lots of blood
that the patient in question has thrown her colostomy bag across the room, again!
Playing with feces
-Sorry for being crude, but it's true
"As a nurse, some fears are unavoidable..."
I hope I don't find a naked patient peeing in.... their water pitcher...their trash can...or over the side of the bed....again!
anything that begins with the word "code"
When a patient pushes their call button, I hope I don't find... a naked, agitated patient standing in the room with a bloody foley catheter and/or IV catheter laying on the floor. (True story on more than one occasion)
an explosive code brown.
that the patient is just fine, the family member just needs some more coffee.
...their roommate on the floor.
That their IV has "fallen out"
