    Just because you are paranoid does NOT mean they're not out to get you.

    If it is wet and sticky and not yours, do not touch it.

    Y'all missed the best quote I've seen on here and don't know who to source it to: Being a good nurse is not always the same as being a good employee.

    Some of mine:

    "Pt medicated; nurse resting comfortably."

    "If in doubt, gork 'em out" (I work in ICU).

    "I can do anything for 12 hrs"

    "Asystole is a very stable rhythm"

    ‘Happiness is a conscious choice, not an automatic response.’
    - Mildred Barthel

    ‘Remember, amateurs built the ark, professionals built the Titanic.’

    ‘The Pilgrims made seven times more graves than huts. No Americans have been more impoverished than those who, nevertheless, set aside a day of thanksgiving.’ – H. U. Westermayer

    ‘You are not here merely to make a living. You are here to enable the world to live more amply, with greater vision, and with a finer spirit of hope and achievement. You are here to enrich the world. You impoverish yourself if you forget this errand.’ – Woodrow Wilson

    “Doubt isn't the opposite of faith; it is an element of faith.”
    --Paul Johannes Tillich

    “There are two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.”
    --Albert Einstein

    “If at first you don't succeed, skydiving is not for you.”
    --Francis Roberts

    “The early bird may get the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese.” --Bumper Sticker

    “Don't ask the barber whether you need a haircut.”
    --Daniel S. Greenberg

    Flowers bloom to roses
    Love grows and reposes
    The World belongs
    With these new songs
    That love composes
    - ME

    I could keep going, I used to compile a list of my favorite quotes. . .

    I don't think I have many work sayings yet. Unless you count the fact that I talk to bubbles in my syringes (get out of there!!); fortunately they don't talk back. I do always say (for the last ten years) to my daughter, as I open her car door, "get in, sit down and do your seat belt." That's all fine and good except that I've been known to say it when entering the house door. She thinks I'm crazy anyway.

    My preceptor has an "okay" that I've recently realized is completely different from any other "okay"... it is drawn out and almost two syllables. Actually, I suspect she's doing mouth breathing when I hear it. I think the funky "okay" means "oh my god I don't wanna be doing this but we are going to get through it!" It made me smile when I realized this; said realization came when I was in the middle of doing a foley.

    Quote from gauge14iv
    You should have heard all the nurses laugh at me when I was visiting someone in the hospital in Maine and went to the nurses station to report that her IV bag was "Dry as a bone" - We say that all the time in Texas...apparently they don't use that in Maine!

    I had to interpret... :chuckle
    Sounds like Texans have alot in common with us Minnesotan's. I'd have said the same thing!

    Just got done watching "Hitch" (which is a great/funny movie by the way) Lots of good quotes in there's one I liked... Alex Hitch Hitchens ..."Never lie, steal, cheat, or drink. But if you must lie, lie in the arms of the one you love. If you must steal, steal away from bad company. If you must cheat, cheat death. And if you must drink, drink in the moments that take your breath away."

    I giggled when I saw this one...

    "Health nuts are going to feel pretty foolish lying around in the hospital dying of nothing."
