    Had a pt who had a bowel obstruction. Refused NG tube, getting worse through the evening. She wasn't my patient, but my coworker finally talked her into it.

She had me take one of the CNAs in with me because she was a nursing student. I proceeded to drop this tube, when the woman begins erupting the most foul fecal/ gastric smelling fluid I have smelled, looking like Mt. Vesuvius. She then proceeds to code.

I slowly backed out of the room and let my coworker deal with it.
