I always screw up when dealing with doctors!
So yesterday I paged the MD cuz my pt's B/p was low (even after he ordered a bolus) and when i was giving him report I was like so at 18 b/p on the right arm was this and on the left arm was this at 18:30 on the right arm was this and on the left arm was this at 19...... And after I was done he goes like "so for the next time, just to make your life easier, take it only in one arm, it's enough" hahah
love this thread!!
Once i was talking to some doc on the phone, and this was back when we still occasionally made actual personal calls to our own homes on the unit ground line in the nurse's station.
As the doc and i were rather hurriedly ending our conversation,
he said "okay, bye"
and out of habit, i replied, "Okay, love you,
and hung up the phone.
oh my, did my face turn red, when i realized what i'd just said to the doctor....and everyone in the nurse's station busted out in peals of laughter.
