Only a nurse would say......

  1. 11 The other day another nurse and I are on the way out of the hospital in the parking garage. The smell of rotting eggs is suddenly hanging in the air. The other nurse says "Ewwww, what the heck smells like Mucomyst?!?"
    LOL. Us nurses are changed forever the day we step into a facility.

    Do you have any other "Only a nurse would say...." stories?

    "You know, that wound sure looks good," Stage III. Looks good. All relative, I guess.

    1) Maybe some dig stim would be good
    2) When did you last poop?
    3) Have you been able to pass gas?
    4) Pleasantly confused
    5) Just a little prick now, ok?
    6) This won't hurt a bit...
    7) Oh man, that was the biggest poop I ever saw!
    8) no, you can't have food till you pass gas
    9) (while looking at the hand of someone with a gargantuan diamond ring) "oh my! would you look at the size of those veins!?!?!?!?"
    10) It's ok, i get vomited on all the time...

    We had a flasher hanging out in the hospital parking lot, one of the nurses told him he better be careful waving that thing around or someone would stick a catheter in it.
