Nurse Humor

    nurse humor :chuckle

    q: did you hear about the nurse who died and went straight to hell?
    a: it took her two weeks to realize that she wasn't at work anymore!

    you know you're a nurse if:

    you believe every patient needs tlc:
    thorazine, lorazepam and compazine.

    you would like to meet the inventor of the call light in a dark alley
    one night.

    you believe not all patients are annoying...some are just unconscious....or tubed and sedated...

    your sense of humor seems to get more "warped" each year.

    you know the phone numbers of every late night food delivery place in town by heart.

    almost everything can seem humorous.....eventually.

    you can only tell time with a 24-hour clock.

    when asked, "what color is the patient's diarrhea?", you show them your shoes. :roll

    every time you walk, you make a rattling noise because of all the
    scissors and clamps in your pockets.

    you can tell the pharmacist more about the medicines he is dispensing you than he can.

    you carry "spare" meds in your pocket rather than wait for pharmacy to deliver.

    you refuse to watch er because it's too much like the real thing and triggers "flash backs."

    you check the caller id when the phone rings on your day off to see if someone from the hospital is trying to call to ask you to work.

    you've been telling stories in a restaurant, and had someone at another table throw up.

    you notice that you use more four letter words now than before you became a nurse.

    every time someone asks you for a pen, you can find at least three of them on you (and they are all from the drug reps!).

    you can intubate your friends at parties.

    you don't get excited about blood loss...unless it's your own.

    you live by the motto, "to be right is only 1/4 of the battle, and to
    convince the physician is the rest of the battle."

    you've basted your thanksgiving turkey with a toomey syringe.

    you've told a confused patient that your name was that of your coworker and to holler if they need help.

    eating microwave popcorn out a clean bedpan is perfectly natural.

    your bladder can expand to the same size as a winnebago's water tank.

    when checking the level of orientation of a patient, you aren't sure of the answer.

    you find yourself checking out other customer's arm veins in grocery waiting lines (or, can see a fetal heart tracing in a crack in the sidewalk!).

    you can sleep soundly at the hospital cafeteria table during dinner, break, sitting up and not be embarrassed when you wake up.

    you avoid unhealthy looking shoppers (or pregnant women) in the mall for fear that they'll drop near you and you'll have to do cpr (or a delivery) on your day off.

    you've sworn you're going to have "dnr" tattooed on your chest.

    You mean I'm not the only one!!!

    Not only customers inline at stores, but even your husband and friends when you play cards (on the rare social occasion). My husband has called me a 'vampire' for 25 years.

    There's also the thinking that drinking ginger ale out of a new urinal is perfectly normal! This posting really made me laugh! Thanks CEN35....

    Reading these I actually related to almost all of them at one time or another. I once was sitting at a restaurant when the waiter brought out the chicken we had ordered and I blerted out, "it looks like a new born laying on its side" I looked around and everyone at my table had gotten up and left me sitting there alone. OOPS! I am more areful now about commenting on what the food looks like when out in public.

    The police were investigating a murder and trying to find out the identity of the victim. They didn't know anything about the poor person except that she was a nurse.

    How did they know that?

    Stomach was empty, bladder full, a%$ chewed on. . .

    ~faith,
