    This really isn't all that bad but it just grossed me out last Tuesday. We coded this lady who came in because of gross hematuria. Apparently, she has a bladder mass or something that just won't stop bleeding, so she was on continuous bladder irrigation, when she "coded." After being revived, I went in to help my new LVN and show her how flushing an irrigation is done. So I went on, flushed a little bit of saline and drew out about 3 full big syringes of blood clots!!!! Of course, I had to empty the syringe to a basin first(and try not to splatter blood all over me), before drawing more from the foley. I almost gagged in that room. I can handle blood but that was just gross....

    I had one of them once too. The poor woman had endstage cervical cancer. She had an ng tube in for drainage, she had a feeding tube, and she had a foley catherer. When I first saw her it literally shocked me. Her torso was HUGE, and she kept moaning, "please somebody, help me. I have to pee so bad my stomach hurts!" When the foley was irrigated, and the bunch of huge blood clots came out, it was amazing how fast and how much her torso deflated.

    Back when I was a nursing student I had a stab wound patient with a chest tube. The pt. had repeatedly clamped the tube and detached it himself from the PleuroVac to go smoke. This time he forgot to unclamp it. The doc was furious and was removing it. No one told me not to stand at the foot of the bed. When the doc yanked the tube out, all the pleural "slush" collected in the tube slung across the front of my shirt and arms. There was a nice blank spot on the wall where I had stood, and I spent the rest of the day in scrubs!

    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...........

    I work on a Gen surg unit. As a new grad I was assigned a patient on 48 hour stool collection. The patient would keep the stool in the bathroom and our job was to transfer it from the bedpan to the container. The stool was mucousy and very soft, the worst smelling. I was gagging the entire time I was transfering it into the container. Yuck!! The funnest thing was the container was kept in the bottom of the fridge. I can say I feel funny anytime I use the fridge even 2 years later!!!
