    [QUOTE=kellie]Oh goodness, I work in a geriatric psychiatric unit, and there are so many strories to tell... id have to narrow it down to these 2.

    We had one very demented lady who used to hoard things in her clothing, and hair, and was constantly mumbling nonsense. Well, it was shower time and I noticed something coming from in between her legs. I got out some napkins,and a pencap. When I noticed there was more, I had to get my charge nurse. Now, keep in mind this is a very large older woman who was screaming and yelling the entire time. It took 3 of us to get the rest out ( 2 to hold her down, 1 to dig) We got a p-nut butter and jelly sandwich out of her vagina.Who knows how long it had been there, but it didnt smell pretty.


    Can anyone tell me does this happen often with elderly women? I know every case is different...But this scares me!:uhoh21: OMG
    I will never eat another PB&J sandwhich again

    . I held it in my bare hand puzzled, when she said in a gravelly, tequila-and-4-packs-a-day voice, "Hit fell outta mah cooter."
    Like the smooth professional I am, when I realized it had been in her vagina, I screamed and tossed it on the floor. I ate lunch with my hand held behind my back, because I was convinced I could still smell her crotchal area on my fingers*. Ick.
    I never told my husband...
    I forgot to add---after you wash,wash ,wash ya hands do a final scrub with shaving cream.....Takes care of that lingering odor..sometimes after dealing with a particulary smelly impaction -even double gloved- I think I can smell that odor on my fingers....argh....

    Yes, this happens quite often with our demented older gals. In fact, I have one resident that is not allowed to own any beanie babies, because she likes to "insert" them in her nether regions. She was given a bunny beanie baby for Easter.....we had to keep a close eye on it......imagine seeing 2 bunny ears sticking out of her cooch!!!!

    i had a male LTC res. once who would stick various objects in his rear when ever he was mad at the staff, the list includes but is def. not limited to: T-shirts, washclothes, the arm rest of a wheel chair, forks (after that he was only allowed spoons on his dinner tray), and the worst one was his roommates teeth. (sorta gives a whole new meaning to bite my ***.) BTW the facility had to buy new teeth for the roommate.

The first thing you have to think of is "where am I going to stand so that I am not covered in this"
    Oh my, my story isn't half as gross as others, but it was at the time. When I was in ICU, we had this pt 300-400lbs, in isolation (C-diff & MRSA I think). So when you entered the room, you had to gown, glove, mask, etc.. Someone walked by the room smelling something. I worked nights, so the lights were off. Turned on the lights, There was dirrhea EVERYWHERE. Pouring off the bed, both sides & headed toward the end. This pt was on a vent & sedated. We had to clean the floors before the pt so we had a place to stand. That was not a pretty sight!

    This story reminds me of a (joke???) I was recently told. I will just say, those poor gerbils. It was disgusting to say the least. The person who told it to me thought it was funny, but when she asked me if I agreed, I replied, "I think it's disgusting." I didn't realize mankind would get that degenerated!!!!

    I've seen a lot of that sort of thing in LTC, too. Some of these really demented folks become fixated on one orifice or another, and it makes life pretty interesting.........

    Several years back, when I was the night charge nurse in one facility, one of our more pleasantly confused residents wheeled herself up to me as I was passing meds, and began chatting. She was very much the proper Southern lady, who probably wouldn't have said sh** if she had a mouthful when she was young, and she'd retained most of her manners even well into the late-middle stage of her dementia. Our conversations were always very genteel, and on this particular occasion I had no clue as to what was coming.

    "Good morning, sweetheart," said Silda as she grasped my hand and kissed it, which was her signature gesture.

    "How are you doing, Silda?" I asked, giving her a hug.

    "Oh, fine, just fine, my dear," she replied conversationally. "My p***y hurts"

    Of course, that was the last thing I'd have expected to hear out of Silda, and one of the aides walking by snickered at what must have been an expression of pure shock on my face. However, I got hold of myself quickly, knowing I'd have to investigate.......so I took her back to her room, got her into bed, put gloves on, and found the pill-crusher that had been missing from the med cart for two days!! Egads!! How she got that up there, I'll never understand......and why hadn't anyone noticed it? (I knew the answer to that one.....doesn't anyone do peri-care anymore?! :angryfire )

    Well, to put it delicately, Silda had created quite an uncomfortable situation for herself.......several lacerations and a raging infection that had to be treated in the ER. Didn't stop her from doing it again, however.......eventually we had to careplan nightly checks for foreign objects! :uhoh21:

    Oh, poor sweetie!

    I worry about what things I'm going to pull in the nursing home. I pity the fool, I mean the CNAs yet unborn who will take care of me.

    The exact reason why I refuse to go into a nursing home. I'd have to be completely touched in the head and not know what was happening first.
