Ok, just having fun here and not being insensitive and all that. Ain't it a shame I feel the need to put out a silly disclaimer?
Anyway, lunchroom today on a med surge floor, folks just started swapping stories. It struck me that only nurses could possibly be talking about this stuff without retching. My favorite today was, "Did you hear about 'guitar man'? I bit, "Nope I haven't." It seems guitar man was a med-surge patient who was found with blood coming from his penis. Upon investigation he was found to have pieces of wire (guitar strings) inserted in his penis (though the urethra). Mind you, this is not a psych floor (or at least we thought). When the Doc was notified, he marched down to the room with a suture kit. The patient of course denied any knowledge of said wire while the Doc fished some of it out with the tiny tweezers. Follow-up xray showed a surgical intervention was needed to retrieve errant Prince Alberts. Go figure. You have any lunch room gross outs to share?
