Funniest thing you've ever seen happen to a doctor - page 5

It's Pick on Doctor Day! :) I have a high regard for physicians, well, most of them, but it sure can be fun to poke fun at them. Our hospital had a notorious, frequent flyer patient with... Read More

    his Pianki fountain Silver pen fell to the floor, as he bend over to pick it up, we all heard a loud rip coming from his pants The patient said without missing a beat "doc your gonna need some stitches" everyone in the room bit their tongue from LOL. Needless to say from that moment on he became more human.
    Now that's a snappy comeback

    Good Lord.

    Great stuff, people.

    I started this thread in general but hadn't seen it in some time so... I figured it had died. Alas, it got "moved."

    Had a neurosurgeon who was consistently a jerk. Think I've only ever heard him speak civilly to the nurses one time. So, there he was, out in the hallway, yelling at this poor little GN, when the patient he'd just been in to see yells from their bed. "$#@! up and leave that poor girl alone, you ***hole!"

    Doc just stood there blinking for a second, then turned and walked away. Nobody BREATHED until we saw him get on the elevator. Then we all DIED laughing.

    OB/GYN doc came running to an emergency, from an on-call room in his boxers. They were long, thankfully, and he was intercepted at the nurses desk before he went into the triage room. It was hilarious.

    Great stories!! I'm laughing sooo hard at the "frosted like a cake" story. LOL

    I was in my L&D clinical rotation, observing a doctor (who was VERY nice, by the way) giving a little man a circumcision. Doctor snips, and looks away for all of two seconds... and the baby pees right in his face. We all lost it.

    When I was a student in my L&D rotation, another student and I were in a patient's room watching the anesthesiologist start an epidural. This guy was always extremely cranky, walked around with a scowl, didn't acknowledge anyone, and was just plain scary - especially to nursing students. Before he began the procedure, he barked at my friend to get him a size 6 gloves (or some number like that - I can't remember). She went to the drawer and got him gloves. He put one of the gloves on and the other one on halfway and then yelled, "This is NOT the size I asked for! You can't even get the right size of gloves?!" He proceeded to throw one of the gloves towards my friend (who was devastated and looked like she was going to cry). He attempted to throw the other glove at her too, but it was stuck on his hand and he just keep FLAILING his arm and hand trying to dramatically fling the glove. The drama he went for turned into hilarity and we all had to bite our tongues to keep from laughing.

    Well as life would have it the new green CNA was walking out the door with a topped of cylinder of fresh warm steaming urine to ask another nurse where the 24 hour collect bag was... LOL, I am giggling already...

    "My karma for the day has got me. I hate to see what will happen next when my karma from that proctologist I yelled at yesterday comes back to me!"

    The doctor stood rod straight and turned to her and said "Its my new cologne O'de Toilet!" And storms off.
    Oh man! You just can't make this kind of stuff up!! LOL I read it twice and still giggling...

    OK so I had a med student as a patient and the little snot was too handy wth his hands, abusive to staff and nasty to fellow patients.
    After one session of him shouting at his room mate that he was a dirty old man for ******* his bed we decided to take the matter into our own hands and (with his surgeons agreement and assistance) ensured he was highly sedated that night and you guessed it...wet bed!
    I know that was nasty of us but this guy was vicious and with a helpful word or to from a couple of our interns to his training school (University) he didnt graduate. I'd never met someone more unsuitable to the profession.
