    We had to wear a pin for an nicu show of support from a rep and it read "Meconium happens"

    We call our hysterical mom's HLF's (hysterical latin females).

    On the board we write A la casa- this pt is being d/c'd soon.

    Next to some pt's names we sometimes draw lips on double doors (this meant the pt was kissing the OR doors-not progressing in labor and will most likely be having a c/s).

    Here's one of my favorites:

    "Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the former."
    ~Albert Einstein

    And this is pretty cute:

    Nurse's Senility Prayer
    Grant me the senility to forget the patients I never liked,
    The good fortune to run into the patients I do like,
    And the eyesight to tell the difference!

    Great thread,

    i used to have this written on my notebook to help me make it through med-surg:

    it's supposed to be hard! if it wasn't hard, everyone would do it. the hard... is what makes it great!----tom hanks, a league of their own

    this is a southernism that my daddy used to say:

    it's cold as a well digger's a$$

    Here are a few of my favorite sayings:

    Well, this day was a total waste of make-up!

    I started out with nothing, and I still have most of it left.

    Therapy is expensive. Popping bubble-wrap is cheap. You choose.

    Why don't you try practicing random acts of intelligence and senseless acts of self-control?

    Sarcasm is just one more service I offer.

    Stress is what you have when you wake up screaming and you realize you haven't gone to sleep yet.

    I work 45 hours a week to be this poor.

    Wait...I'm trying to imagine you with a personality.

    Chaos, panic, and work here is done.

    Earth is full. Go home.

    "Sometimes the need to mess with their heads outweighs the millstone of humiliation." (Fox Mulder)

    "Sometimes the only way to win is not to play." (The computer in the movie "War Games")

    We had buttons at work that some instrument rep had brought in that said "hemmorhoids can be fun". Apparently whoever came up with THAT slogan had never had them.

    (Me either, but sheesh)

    You are what you don't poop.

    Raising teenagers is like nailing jello to a tree.

    But seriously I'm a Dan Quayle fan:

    If we don't succeed we run the risk of failure.

    Pollution is not the problem, the problem is the impurities in the air and water.
