:heartbeat I feel I'm a pretty funny person so why let it stop when a doctor who intimidates me comes around. Just the other day I told a doctor his patient's INR was 100, he giggled. I think my... Read More

    there was this new intern, and he decided he would help out and get a temperature, he was puzzled why he couldnt get it so i went with him to see what was going on. it was a digital ear thermometer and he had it in the pt;s mouth . of course i told him that wasn't right. i know he got embarressed, but he had to learn. alot of them havent even dealt with this stuff.it was funny, but i also felt sorry for the guy.

    I assisted one of our really great but totaly ADD ED docs with a pelvic. He finished, patted the woman briskly on the knee and said "Well, you look good down there." The patient and I locked eyes. Of course we both lost it. We were laughing so hard we were both crying! "No! No! I mean the exam looked good!" Said the red-faced doctor. We howled!

    I had a similar experience when I worked a cardiac unit. One of the cardiologists was checking a woman's goin site before discharging her and said "beautiful" when he lifted up the sheet. After he left the room the pt and I laughed until we cried.

    I worked with a Lebanese doctor who was very extremely arrogant, and also quite defensive about cultural issues, very defensive. His coloring was dark, and he had a good bit of an accent. One day he went into a room to see an adolescent, who was a teriffic clown. The boy leaped under his bed, hands over his head, and screamed like a girl, "Please Osama, Please, don't kill me!" The doctor quietly left the unit and couldn't see any more patients for hours. I felt bad, but I couldn't help hiding and laughing my ### off.

    We were working a code on my Tele unit, ofcorse there were the usual million people in the room. The Resident doing compressions was getting pretty tired. I was going to step in to take over, when the other Resident running the code spoke up. She looked around the room and said "Does anyone else know how to do CPR?" We all kind of looked @ eachother and I smiled and raised my hand. I still laugh every time I see her....lol

    A doc decided to "help" put in a foley once. So after he gets his gloves on he picks up the green plastic cotton ball tweezers used to prep with betadine. But instead of using them for the cotton balls, he uses the tweezers to hold this poor pt's penis....no one said a word....but we had a good laugh after he left. They are now known as penis holders

    Hopefully, this bright one wasn't a urologist!! Hey, at least he tried....
    I did work with an internist who had absolutely no idea what an I&O hat was. We told him it was a hat, to put it on, and would you believe he almost did.....
