    Careful, the nurse ratchets out there might get upset.
    I actually have done #9 several times with pca pumps. I usually get a good laugh.

    I loved your jokes. We do need humor in the field of nursing. Hey look at Patch Adams. He saw humor as healing the mind, body, and soul. Why can't there be a 'Nurse' Patch Adams?

    In Labor & Delivery, when the nurse goes to hand the newborn to the nervous new daddy, holler, "Here! Catch!" as you hand him the baby!
