bedpan anyone?

  1. -------------------------------------------------

    hospital bulletin:

    -------------------------------------------------
    in an effort to hold the line on escalating medical costs,
    the hopital is reducing the number of bedpans now in use to
    one (1).

    all patients will be assigned a number,
    and when your number is called,
    it will be your turn to use the pan.

    your number is listed below.

    do not forget it!

    #697

    LOL i'm hanging that one in the break room on my old floor! We have a sign in the "plastics" closet saying that supplies were limited and only deliveered on certain days. Overheard the charge nurse say "well s*** what are we supposed to do, make the pts. take a number for the one bedpan on this floor??"

    I'd of thought most facilities would go for this idea.

    Cost savings, environmentally conscious, AND a sure eliminator of all the cold bedpan complaints! This is a win-win-win!

    What the heck am I missing?
