    I don't think this is funny at all. I get that it is meant to be humorous but it isn't.
    I completely agree. Dark humor is rampant throughout our profession and it's a way to let off steam and I totally get that. But it's usually not directed at causing pain as a punishment for patients. I'm surprised that allnurses put their logo on this.

    This just doesn't make sense, "aw this ICU patient is so sweet, I guess one #22 will do! "

    It more like the intoxicated combative abusive .......person.......who has cussed, spit, bit, punched their way through the EMS and ED staff, in 4 point leathers, after wrapping their car around a tree......might need a large gage IV for rapid infusion of fluids.

    It's just a joke......((WINK))

    Well, I mean, that person could definitely benefit from at least a 14 guage.

    There is something to be said for punitive medicine....we also can choose the size of the foley.....

    Just saying....
    That was literally my first thought at seeing this picture!!! Forget the IV, what about a giant french Foley?

    Same day pt can't get discharged until they void. Some men early on in the post op phase would already start ruminating "I'm never going to pee. I will never to be able to do it ." I used to go to the OR get the largest catheter available (drain pipe size! ) and place it at their bedside and say "we probably won't need this bit good to have it,just in case " Amazingly this inspired them to pee within 5mins!!
    Next pt please, this ones ready for discharge!
