    I think there was a little too much misinterpretation... No one called doctors "stupid"-- I believe it was "stupid things doctors do"-- yes, we all do stupid things. And yes, we are all professionals, but I agree that sharing funny moments involving "doctors doing... dumb things" (I tried to think of a more PC way of putting it... but all of you complaining can just get over it) for an innocent laugh is quite appropriate. I'm pretty sure most of us are comfortable sharing silly things we have done. There! "SILLY" instead of "stupid".

    Anyway, I work in an acute psych hospital. There are a few doctors, one in particular, who -- and this has happened more than once-- will be rounding and suddenly we have a "code M"-- unruly/combative patient-- he runs for the stairs or elevator... half the time there is no PRN to give so we have to start calling for orders.

    Also, the psychiatrists never respond to medical codes. I understand their specialty is in mental health... but they are still MDs- medical doctors!!

    Since that isn't as funny as it is pathetic... I will make fun of myself. Just this weekend, I was trying to finish things up and get a report sheet done as it was close to shift change, Accuchecks, etc. We were short-handed and I was flustered and a pt. had a HA. I bring him 2 Tylenol and an empty cup... Yeah... forgot the water...

    Doctor bloopers/nurse bloopers. Probably a better title. I once threw a cup of narcotics in the trash without realizing it, when I was organizing the top of my cart. Had a complete meltdown.

    And yeah, I've done the empty water cup thing, also, have taken an empty med cup. With a full glass of water though.

    I suggest that you google the words student, doctor, medicine, blog.There are several, but some of the tackier ones come up with med students.I take what they say about as seriously as prenursing/nursing students.
