    I worked in a LTC facility and had a dementia patient who had severe contractures in both hands, was an avid biter, and would screech loudly if you talked or looked at her.

    My first time working night shift, my CNA's walked up to me and told me there was something I had to see.

    Naturally, I arrived in her room. She had been painting the walls, her bed, and herself with foul, chunky, runny fecal matter, and as we approached she screeched at the top of her lungs like a banshee and through the dim light of her lamp her eyes were wide open and she was gnashing her teeth, with feces dripping out between their jagged edges.

    It was like a scene from the exorcist!

    oh but i have so many.....

    having a psych pt crap in the sink just to make me mad, it worked!!

    having a pt covered in ants on admission.

    thinking i had escaped a loogie situation clean only to place my hand on my hip and feel the warmth, and sliminess of the loogie right there on my pants.

    having to scrape petrified loogie from an elderly pt mouth, while my battle buddy gagged next to me.

    walking into a rm of a naked psych pt who was trying to stab me with a fork, when her sitter finally got her settled, she sat her naked bum on the extra chair in the room without a sheet or anything. dont have to remind me to not sit in the chairs in the rooms!!!
