procedures no one has heard of...

  1. It was my day off and as usual I was rushing around trying to get all of my errands done so I could relax for awhile-I ran into our local chain store for a few things and while cruising to my destination I was stopped by a friendly lady-Who seemed to know me very well because she was a former pt of mine at our small local hospital.She complimented me on my nursing skills and bedside manner..then proceeded to update me on her recent medical history(loudly).I still had no idea WHO this woman was...she told me she was having stomache problems and had every test under the sun--including one of those bavarian enemas...I was TOAST!(and yes-I know what she really meant)

    Once a large group of physicians on rounds went into the room of my patient who was sitting on the bedside commode.
    When they left he said, "Nurse, get a load of those guys! First they talk about my electric lights, then it's my electric feces!"
    (One of them ordered a serum electrophoresis)

    One of our patients is also a greeter at our local Wal-mart, every time I walk in the door she goes about telling me her different ailments way too loudly.
