    All this just reminds me of when I was in nursing school years ago. I found some of my old nsg. notes and the way that I spelled things back then, OH MY, it is a surprise that I passed. I can't think of any in particular but I am sure it will come to me!
    (I may be too embarassed to post them though!)

    A very real entity, actually. Here's an article about pseudoseizures. It's intended for laypeople, but provides good explanation.

    During a nursing 2000 rotation I shadowed a L&D nurse. She had a 15yo patient in labor who called her in and screamed... "MY STUFF HURTS" the nurse wrote that on the chart verbatum then called the doc and said "I think you need to get down here, her stuff hurts."

    I went into the ER once having a miscarriage. I tolf the Triage nurse why I was there... he asked why I thought that. I showed him a foot (i had pulled it off thinking it was a blood clot inside me...loooooooooong story) he said ok.. go have a seat and Ill get you a bed. 6 hours later I got that bed and the doc came in asking what was wrong. I told him i was having a miscarriage... he said why do you think that.. I said because the baby is now in my pants. I was pissed. Later, I snagged my chart and read it.. the doc wrote " patient presented with a baby in her pants... suspected miscarriage" You think?

    [font="comic sans ms"]how sad for you! how insensitive of the medical team who should have shown you some compassion. not everyone views a sa the same way but there are many women who grieve and need the emotional support.

    I can tell you that the ED nurse sat with me for about 4 hours, pulling out clots, cleaning me up and crying with me.

    This was years ago .An elderly lady was admitted with a diagnosis of S.O.B, S.O.B. S.O.B.We figured out that it was something to do with short of breath .In the end though had to ring her G.P.Apparently he was fed up with her and admitted her to hospital so she would stop presenting at his practice for a while.He said the abbreviations stood for Silly old b...h, sitting on bed , short of breath.lol

    My ex used to crack me up. When my oldest son sampled some cleaner, she returned from the ED with him and announced that he had burned his slobbery glands. (salivary) He's fine now 15 years later so I guess he had enough slobber production to get by.

    Oh how horrible!

    I know someone who had a miscarriage many years ago. The doctor delivered the fetus in the Emergency Room cubicle then chucked into the trash can right in front of her.
