    I had a coworker at the ECF who was a chronic practical joker. She told us about one of her prize winners from the early days. She got a diaper and put chocolate pudding in it. Walked down the hall carrying it bare handed, strategically folded so part of the inside (specifically the brown part) was showing. Her supervisor jumped all over her "What are you doing? You know you can't just carry that around! Where did it come from?" That was exactly the reply she was hoping for. She opened it up, said "I don't remember, wait a sec" The she stuck her finger knuckle deep in the pudding and licked it off.

    I've got one that happened this past weekend, I was interviewing a pt that was just transfered when my aid asked, "Adam, is the pt in the room accross the hall allowed out of bed, (Yes the demented one accross the hall.) I suddenly hear a crash followed by a splat. A rather loud splat to say the least.
    It seems my pt got ouf of bed, pulled out the foley, and then stood straight up, fell backwards onto a fully loaded diaper, full of a very rather large bowel movement. Sending the BM all over the place. Splattered on the walls, curtins, bed, and of coarse the patient. Interestingly enough, the pt was uninjured in this. We credit the BM for it crash absorbing properties from saving the pt from a THR.

    Hey, did you guys know that microwaved goat smells EXACTLY like C-Diff? I discovered this, to my chagrin, at clinical the other day. Note to self: Do not loudly wonder (in the break room, no pts around!) what smells so bad before you find out that it's the Ghanese nurse's lunch....

    I'll keep that in mind, thanks. I've seen some chicken gumbo that looked just like it.

    We had a gentleman call our clinic to ask what semen was made out of. It turns out he wanted to put semen in a dish that he was cooking for some friends of his, but he wanted to make sure that it wasn't something that anyone could be allergic to. (How thoughtful!)

    My first few months in a burn center we had a twenty something man admitted with TENS (nasty condition where the epidermis sloughs off and the mucous membranes, including the mouth, inner eye lids,and lungs slough off, and bleed and bleed and bleed) who had a history of IVDA, HIV, hepatitis, syphillis and herpes, not to mention a real joyful personality(one the rare times a patient on our floor was not intubated). Pts with TENS with ocular involvement often need to have their eyes "swept" with cotton swabs as often as hourly to perserve their sight: not exactly a comfortable sensation. Anyway, this gentlemen was so enthusiastic about his care regimen that he would spit blood AT you: purposely trying to hit you. Luckily he didn't succeed at hitting me, but a few of the staff did get "up close and personal" with his blood and body fluids (even with a full gown, mask, hat gettup, it still is gross to be spit at, especially blood). Yikes. Then there was the time that a 60% burn victim who hadn't pooped in days had a code brown blow out that literally was dripping off of the bed and puddling on the floor almost immediately after his two hour bath and dressing change. Never mind the insanity, that unit was a blast to work on excellent people made it tolerable, and every shift was "a party in blue pajamas"!

    I've got tons to tell, having been in nursing since 1990. As of late, I'd have to say the most recent most gross, yucky, disgusting nursing experience I have had, was being hurled on from head to toe while inserting an NG tube in somebody who had an ileus. Thankfully it was at change of shift, the day nurse who I was supposed to give report to, ran in to take over while I ran to the bathroom to undress and douse myself with water (needless to say, I couldn't wait to get home and take a shower; but I did at least get a free pair of scrubs out of the ordeal).
