    If your wife has decided to leave you, don't stand in front of her truck. Have you SEEN how big a chest tube is?

    The more people that come to the bedside, a) the more they've ignored this poor soul and are now feeling guilty, or b) the more money they think they're going to get when she dies.

    If you tell me how to do my job one more time from your fast wealth of knowledge that you have gained by watching Greys and looking things up on WebMD, I'm going to have the patient D/C'd right into your house.

    No we are are not killing your dad with "chemicals" we are trying to remove the 3 pounds of tylenol he took trying to get away from all of you blood sucking leeches.

    Night shift: "We attempted to straight cath her 4 times with no urine resulting; however, bladder scan shows 788 ml of fluid."

    At next change of shift: "We straight cathed into the correct orifice and drained 1000 ml of urine."

    If you accompanied your wife to a doc appointment where she found out that you had given her chlamydia, why did you then go to the ER to get tested? And, I really hope they got the result via urethral swab, rather than letting you get away with just whizzing into a cup.

    The tubing for GT feeds has a huge label on it that says NOT FOR IV.

    I wonder if someone out there has made that mistake and that's why that label is there.

    *shuddering*
    The label has to be there for a reason, which scares me... lol

    Nursing is one of the few occupations where coming upon a naked guy results not in an "OMG, I'm being flashed" reaction, but a "So, whatcha doing?" The correct answer: "I'm looking for my pants." Um, OK. How about we sit down first?

    It's quite frustrating to end your day with what should be an easy task and FAILING at it, for example, cathing a BOY and feeling like you hit an old man's prostate....

    What on god's green earth did you use to put in your mom's dentures, super glue? I have got to get these things out before her EGD, and I think I'm going to need a jackhammer and possibly some C-5.

    Be careful, back in my days as a nursing home CNA, I was trying to get an old lady's dentures out, turns out she didn't wear dentures. 90 something with BEAUTIFUL teeth that I thought had to be fake.

    *mental image of patient garbling "fafh my real teef" as I have my hand in his mouth yanking..."

    They still talk about one new nurse at a local nursing home. They told her that all her patients must have their dentures cleaned daily, so she took everyone's dentures to the sink, put them ALL in the bucket, scrubbed them down, and then and only then realized they weren't labeled.

    Oh, dear.
