Sep 28, '01OK, here's mine,
We've had a patient named Harry Dick (no joke)
Used to have a Dr. Dakters
Used to have a Dr. Gaddipatti (overhead operators made it sound like gotta potty)
And the finale, my last name is Kushen (sounds like cushion) and we once had a supervisor who started calling me pin (my first name is Lynn), therefore I'm Pin Kushen to my coworkers. My daughters hate it when I mention that I considered naming them Whoopi!

Ive also had a patient call me a "half nurse" as Im an Enrolled Nurse (similar to an LPN in the USA). He said if I were a "full nurse" I'd be a Registered Nurse. I wasnt sure whether to take offense or just laugh!!

Oct 5, '01I am a nursing student in Tucson, AZ USA
My name is Paul T. Kreul
I am hoping that people will address me as "Nurse Paul" instead of the traditional "Nurse Kreul".
People get a good chuckle out of it, and it is usually a good icebreaker. I think the best part is that NO ONE ever forgets my name.

a dentist named Dr. Maclean, as in Maclean's toothpaste
a pediatrician named Dr. Savage (he was anything but!)
and a family doctor named Dr. Charlton!
