    There are so many pages to this thread that I don't know if I have posted this before or not. But here goes:

    I was the med nurse on a small med-surg unit on the 3-ll shift. My assignment, in addition to the meds was to help the patients in a four bed room to get ready for bed. Three of the four beds were occupied by some college guys who had been injured in a football game the previous night. None of them required much beyond the cursory basics.
    The fourth bed was occupied by an old guy with dementia who was a sweetie, and we'd had him on several previous admissions. He was sitting in the chair, and I just had to help him back into bed. After I pulled the curtain around for privacy, he murmured that he had to pee. I handed him the bottle and turned my attention to pulling down the bed-covers and after a few seconds I felt a warm stream hit my leg. He was holding the urinal in one hand and his business-end with the other hand and staring off into space.

    In dismay I turned to help him place his penis IN the bottle and said the worst possible thing I could have said in that room: "Oscar! Oscar! You're 88 years old and you don't know how to use it yet?! Put it IN! Put it IN!"

    Laughter erupted and soon all of us were helpless with it. Naturally, the college guys couldn't get over it, and for the next two or so days, every time I entered or passed by the room, at least one, if not all of them just had to mimic in falsetto: "Put it in! Put it in!"

    I was recently taking care of a pt with alzheimers/dementia. This pt never made any sense when she talked. Then one day, in a brief moment of clarity she said, "To love is nothing, to be loved is something, but to be loved by the one you love, is EVERYTHING" then it was back to babbling...
    Pretty profound!

    I had a pt.like that once, her sentences seldom held together ( carrots growing in the walls?). Anyway, she was babbling on as usual, when suddenly she focused on my face, brushed my hair away from my forehead, and said "You know, dear, you really should trim. your bangs." My mouth dropped open in surprise. She never said a coherent thing again!

    Jeff Foxworthy says something to the effect that, "If you shout out, 'Hey y'all need to come and look at THIS!', before you flush the toilet, you MIGHT be a Redneck!"

    I've told this before on some other thread here a while back: One summer day I got 3 medium sized beets fresh from a friend's garden. I ate them...all three..and they were delicious!
    A day and a half later after I pooped, when I stood and turned around, what I saw gave me a real adrenaline chill. What looked like a LOT of frank blood filled the water. I was stunned.
    I said to myself: "Ok,ok, ok; Ummmm, no bloated abdomen, no stomach pain, no tenderness, don't feel dizzy..." I was running through all the s/s that might have given me an indication of trouble, trying to calm myself. Decided to wait a few minutes and just sit and listen to my body to see if I could discern anything that would cause such bleeding!
    I was glad I hadn't gone into the panic-mode that threatened when I first saw that red water.
    Warm relief flooded through my arms and chest when I remembered I had eaten all those beets!
    If I'd called an ambulance and ended up after an ER with a diagnosis of "Multiple-Beet Ingestion" then my FACE would've been as red!

    So, yes, look at your poop, but try to think before you get in a tizzy about what you see!

    But I think I like you.
    Gads, Far'wyn, your answer threw me another ear-worm; now I am thinking/hearing/humming the tune by The Partridge Family's "I Think I Love You".
    What a NUISANCE!

    When I was supervisor at a LTC facility I had a CNA call out because she was having her "cycle"!! In fact, she called out for an entire week because of her "cycle" I had never heard this excuse before and just wondered why she would think it was an excuse to call out??
    Maybe her tribe stuck her in a menstrual hut because she was 'unclean'?

    I had the pleasure of starting out in nursing when it was well-paid, the staffing and ratios weren't ever an issue, and all functioned as a team. What has happened over the years in the field of nursing is nothing short of tragedy and travesty.
