- Aug 18, '10 by canesdukegirlA patient was being stubborn about getting up from the bed and walking 5xqd 1st day post-op, and the note that was written by the nurse was this:
"Pt states at home that she is usually sedimentary and doesn't need to walk today."
Hmm....the patient is usually rocky??
- Aug 19, '10 by sairin8At handover today, the staff member going off shift said "[pt's name] complained of cockroach". The then thought about it for a moment and said, "oh wait, it could be earache"
- Aug 23, '10 by JPrn2bAs a CNA, reading some of these posts I'm glad we're not allowed to note in the pt's chart. That way I can't be blamed for confusing CBI with hooking IV to F/C! That's a pretty embarrassing error, not to mention dangerous if it were actually done.

Patient challanged me to game of chess, I accepted and beat him. Patient stated this was first time he'd ever been beat. PLAN: encourage patient to play more chess as part of rehab.
Couldn't stop laughing at this
Although not written a collegue of mine has often described a patient as 'Mad as a box of frogs' durign handover.... God I love psychiatry.

- Sep 1, '10 by C_perugiaeMy sister is a NICU nurse and was asked to help with a difficult birth at the end of her third 12 hour night shift in a row. When she was ready to leave, she reported to the NP, she told her that she gave the baby a blow job. What she meant to say was blow-by oxygen. She still gets teased about this, two months after the slipup.
I hate to bring this up, but I was taught that the singular form of "nares" is "naris" instead of "nare." Not trying to be uppity or anything, just thought I'd throw that in there.
