  1. I worked in a hospital clinic years ago, and grabbed the next patients chart to come back. I went out in the Lobby, looked at the name and said..."Holy Makeral"

    PSYCHIATRY (what else!?) You'd have to go into psychiatry after your parents made you crazy with a name like John John.

    In a facility I worked for a while back, I admitted a patient by the name of Kenny Wood. The following night I admited Ida Wyle. The funny part? Kennywood and Idawild,,,two local amusement parks.

    My favorite one was when I went to the ER waiting room and called my patient in.. The air was light, mood was good in the waiting room (for a change).. I called out (not thinking) "James Brown!!" and I hear this chorus throughout the waiting room... "I FEEL GOOOOOOOOOOD NANANANANANANAAAAAAAAAAA... THE WAY THAT A SHOULD NANANANANANANAAAAAAAA"....

    My patient got quite a good laugh about it, thankfully he had an awesome sense of humor and said he gets that quite often, and has learned to take it in stride..whew! (next time, I think I'll just ask for Mr. Brown..hehe)

    I TOOK CARE OF A HARRY JOHNSON, CHARLIE BROWN AND PENNY NICKLE. WHAT DO PARENTS THINK?


    THIS IS A TRUE STORY RELAYED TO ME BY ONE OF OUR NURSES:
    A CRACK ADDICTED MOTHER CAME IN TO HAVE HER BABIES....SHE DID, AND THEY WERE TWINS.
    UPON SOBERING UP BECAME ANGRY THAT THE NICU NURSES NAMED HER BABIES


    MOLLY AND FEMOLLY (PHONETIC SPELLING)




    ACTUAL SPELLING---MALE AND FEMALE


    OMG!!!!!

    We have resident on our floor and his name is Seymore Weiner. The doctor should have slapped his mother instead when he was born! What a crack head!!!

    I worked in a building with a gynecologst named Harry Beaver.

    We had parents w/ the last name "Dice"; they named their son Rollin.

    I have learned to dislike the name "Crystal" because so many moms have told me that's what the were doing when the child was conceived.

    Another set of twins: Andrew (baby "A") and Balthazar! NO KIDDING!

    More twins: Shaina and Shania--too confusing.

    It's me again...Also had a patient in psychiatry. His name was Joe Blosus! Between Seymour Weiner and Joe Bloesus, no wonder they both ended up on the psych unit...The kids probably teased the H*LL out of them which drove them absolutely "sChIzO-CrAzY!"
