    There's no such thing. Just when you think the puking's all over, there's always more.

    I want more pukedom, people!

    When I worked in med-surg I was walking down the hall and I kept hearing this awful spuing sound. I kept walking till I found out where it was coming from. I walked in a pts. room and here lays this man about 80 y/o totally not with it. He had been restrained
    and was laying there coughing up loogies and spitting them straight up in the air, of course they (the loogies) came back and splattered him in the face. I stood there for a minute and tried to figure out which direction I could run and hide
    But as I stood there I was wondering my God how in the world am I gonna get this cleaned up? I will vomit just from the nasty sounds he was making. So heres my secret. I went to get wash cloths and cleaning stuff and when I came back two other nurses were there to clean him and since they were doing such a nice job a third person would had just been in the way right???
    I snuck right outta there. Yep I couldnt handle it anyway. I was gone! Never told the rest of them my story=lol:roll :roll :roll


    I have a similar loogie story..it makes me want to heave just thinking about it so I will make this as short as possible..we had a young kid in his early 20's on our neuro floor that was a severe head injury with a trache....who was to be suctioned as needed. Well I went in to make my start of the shift assesment and you guessed it he needed suctioning pretty bad....Got myself all ready and he hacks out a big one right in my face..I thought I would upchuck right on him(he had no idea where he was or even what was going on at the time) I ran for the BR as fast as I could...ohhh it still leaves me gagging...I was so pi**ed off at the nurse who took care of him the shift before and said during report he was clear and resting...

    Another LTC story. sadly I cannot take credit for this one as it was told to me by a friend.

    It goes....

    She was makeing rounds on her patients when the wife of a residant asked her to find her husbands dentures.

    She looked everywhere, even in other residents rooms. His roommate was incoherant so he couldent have taken them.

    The patient couldent remeber what he had done with them. She gave up and took to cleaning up the two resisdents. she cleaend the resident who had lost his dentures first and had a hard time cleaning carmel out of his mustash and mouth.

    She then cleaned up his roomate and found the missing detures stuck to his scrotum with carmel, when she changed his depends.

    Guess the guy was enjoying the carmel so much he forgot about his teeth.
    this is just plain WRONG...omg.

    Uhhh...there's something I'm not getting here! Being a nurse, I gotta ask: by what route did the dentures wind up in the diaper??

    my horror story is that in my second year of my studies i was in placement in theatre and one nice looking guy was brought in to recovery from thewtheatre and his story was that ............ he had removed from his anus a SIX inch polish sausage which his goodlooking wife had been playing with and it broke off in side him, ps it was frozen at the time so was brittle. by the way i am now a 3rd year student and go out on placement next month.

    This isn't half as disgusting as some of the situations I have read here, but since it happened when I was at the wrong end of a laboring woman ( if you're the nurse, that is), I have to say it was pretty gross...Woman pushing and doing a good job. The fact that her water broke and deluged me was really not the most disgusting factor of this scenario...She had a boil on the inside of one thigh close to where all the business was going on, and as I put her legs up in order to coach her with pushing, the thing broke and there was projectile pus all over the place, not to mention a really rank odor joining all the other odors in the room. Fortunately I managed to duck out of the way of that one, but then the doc wanted me to somehow coach the pt, protect the spewing boil AND keep everything from the impending arrival of the infant...Sometimes it just doesn't pay to show up at work...Yuck! Long ago while caring for an elderly woman with ca of the face, her nose fell off during pm care. I had to sit down with that one...

    Nurses ROCK when it comes to gross stories!!!! I have two short but gross ones..... Had a thirtysomething man in for wound care and IV abo therapy. He was about 6 and 1/2 feet tall, approw 350 lbs, and very rarely showered. He had scabbed and infected areas over his whole body. They never got any better and in desperation the M.D. ordered the wounds to be scrubbed with betadine 3x per day. The Doc knew something he forgot to tell the nurses, but we soon found out. The reason the wounds weren't healing is because the patient had a habit of CULTIVATING, HARVESTING, AND EATING HIS SCABS!!!!!He began refusing woundcare because the betadine changed the FLAVOR OF THE SCABS!!!! EWWWWW!!!! The second story is about an immobile patient who was unable to speak. She had chronic ear infections and one day began draining yellow pus from her ears. The CNA came and got me and we turned her on her side so I could look in her ears. Out tumbled tons of smelly maggots! When we turned her the other way, the same thing happened to the other ear. I flushed until clear, and you know what? She NEVER had another ear infection!
