    I am not a nurse yet, but things I have learned as a PCT...

    Never let you dog lick your fresh CABG incision

    Never play golf in a thunderstorm (tho said lightning strike makes for a pretty cool design on the skin)

    Never disagree with a 6ft5 300lb psych patient off his meds

    Never assume the penile implant that is now protruding from your penis will heal itself with prayer

    Never wake your husband who was just discharged from the hospital after recovering from an MI up at 2am and demand sex

    And my all time favorite...Never forget to pull the needle back out of your arm before returning to the nurses station to answer a physician phone call
