    a foreign RN I work with documented "resident has pusy drainage from penis"

    But... she hasn't yet mastered English spelling, and the word "pusy" had an extra 's'....

    I had a sick resident who was very somnolent and difficult to arouse even with a firm sternal rub. He also happened to be four days w/o a BM, so I administered a suppository. Even the administration of the suppository failed to wake him up.

    So, in my note, I wrote "suppository did not arouse resident"..... yeah, probably could have worded that better....
    Haha!

    I'm a psych nurse. Last night when attempting to do a reassessment on a borderline patient, she flipped me off and walked away. So I charted the following:

    "When this RN attempted to initiate a conversation for reassessment, the pt displayed the dorsal aspect of the second digit of her right hand in an erect fashion and walked away, refusing to speak."
