    I was a new CNA in the nursing home and feeling very proud of my first step in my chosen career.

    A nice littel old man in a wheel chair waved at one of my co-workers (a pretty littel 18 year-old, fresh out of high school sugar and spice type of girl). He said "honey come over here please" as she bent down to talk to him. He moved the blanket covering his legs and SPLAT! he ejaculated right in her face and mouth. I never saw her again and thus my nursing career beagn...........
    Police should have been called for this episode of sexual assault.

    Quote from Oswin
    So I'm working as a tech in a hospital and we get this pt. He was in his 40's, and one of those patients who came in just... covered in dirt and old clothes and matted hair. and you can just sense something is "off" with them.

    So I get report that he's bed bound and incontinent. A&Ox3, Used his call light appropriately when he needs to be cleaned up, and having diarrhea so he's going a lot. (But it's like.. diarrhea with some chunks in it, not pure liquid. )

    So he hits his call light and says he had a bm, i go in to clean him up and am met with a horrific sight. He had apparently gone a while ago... and been playing it. He pulled the pad out from under him stuck his hands in it, picked up chunks and threw them across the room. Drew smiley faces on the wall in stool. Wrote "Hi! :-)" on the wall. Shoved some towels between his legs to sop up some poop then flung them in different places in the room. He had a semi-private room with no roommate so there was some room to fling poop, and boy did he fling that poop. So anyway, I suck up my "what-on-earth-face" and put on the blank professional face and clean him up first. He doesn't say a word to me the whole time. Then I quietly get some towels and bleach wipes and start tackling the room.

    I'd had my back turned and was scrubbing (now partially dried) poop off the floor when I hear him mutter something, so I turn around and he's intently watching me clean up the mess he made. And masturbating. I'm trying to keep my face professional when I realize that he's mumbling "CLEAN my mess. Oh yeah."

    At that point I silently bagged up the towels, left the room, closed the door, and instructed the clerk to please page housekeeping, rofl.

    Why do you want to take a cheap shot? Why do you need to cause trouble?

    My horror story? Working12 hours at night, rarely a lunch break, not many nurses around, no aide, and unable to return narcs in the 60 min time frame. Yes they were returned/wasted, but not within the hour.....year later the board is knocking on my door? Seriously? Hospital never tested me (would have been negative) sister company I worked for afterwards tested as part of hiring process (negative)....now my license is in question. You are GUILTY until proven innocent. And to prove your innocence you are to pay for a three year program that doesn't even allow beer? Wow. Something's wrong. The End
    Were you supposed to have the Sup or a nurse from another ward witness it or what?

    This is not the grossest thing I have ever seen, but it certainly left an impression on me.
    Part of an NRP RRT in L&D. Mom of infant is HBSag + and actively pushing. OB resident sitting on a stool between the patient's legs with sterile gloves on but no gown. She encourages mom to "give a really big push in her bottom like she is pushing out a big poop." I am at the warmer to the side, watching. On the next contraction the Mom sits up, gives a roar like a lion, and pushes with the OB leaning in to look and massaging the perineum. I hear a giant pop and then all of a sudden blood, amniotic fluid, and loose stool shoot out all over the front of the resident (on her face, in her hair, dripping down her arm). She backs up and looks at me in horror. The L&D nurse wordlessly hands her a towel and meets my eye over the Resident's head and is obviously suppressing the giggles. The resident gets up and washes her arms and hands and gets back to her seat. The baby was delivered two pushes later.
    I went home that morning and scrubbed in hot water in the shower for a long, long time.

    And that, ladies and gents, is why I always wear a gown and shoe covers in a delivery. No matter how far away from the perineum I am (and that varies with each delivery). Personal experience has taught me that I can wear a gown to 100 deliveries and come out clean each time, but the one time I don't (I forget, no time, whatever), that is the time I will be standing across the room yet get toasted with something warm, wet, and not mine.

    Yes, agreed. I even had a protective surgical jacket and shoe covers on and I am just there for the baby. All it took was one improperly clamped cord slithering across my arm x1 and I now try to wear the jacket to every delivery.

    This was back when I was an active EMT. We arrived at a house where the caregiver told us the patient had died, but there was no DNR posted at the head of the individual’s bed which meant we had to start CPR. We had no bag valve mask resuscitator at the time so we used mouth-to-mouth.
    The patient was being tube fed, and had cancer. Tumors dislodged as we were performing compressions, and the foulest smelling odor I had ever smelled emitted from the patient both in the home and in the ambulance. I was forced to leave as soon as we arrived back to the station, otherwise I would have thrown up. I can still remember that smell twenty years later.
