    I have two gross stories. They aren't as bad as some of the others on here.
    1. A co-worker and I was changing a patient in the bed. All was good when he was rolled over towards my co-worker but as soon as he was rolled towards me he proceded to pee. It was bad enough that he peed all down my leg but I had crocs on (the ones with the holes ). So not only did my pants get soked in the urine, my sock got soked with it as well. It is not a good feeling to have pee between your toes. As soon as I was done I told my charge nurse that I had to leave so I could go home and disinfect myself.
    2. After showering a patient I gave him a towel to dry off with. He dried himself off. In the process he had to dry underneith his testicles. Well when he was done with the towel he decided that he was going to throw the towel at me. If I had not been paying attention the towel would have hit me right in the face. I would have defintally have had to go home and take muliple showers after that one.

    decided that he was going to throw the towel at me
    I suppose that it's an entirely different thread or three but why do patients get away with battery with no repercussions on a regular basis?

    After reading about 45 pages of this stuff, I'm amazed at the amount of stories that involve maggots. And the poopy messes, when someone decides to 'fingerpaint' or whatever.. ughh

    And then eating it...HOW!??!?!

    I got accepted into nursing school yesterday, and I'm not reconsidering even a little bit.

    Also, dont believe the dead kitten story... seems just a bit far fetched.

    The guy going through DT's who felt the need to dig the crap out of his butt and paint the wall with it. That was pretty gross.

    Oh speaking of maggots? The hundreds of maggots that started crawling out of the patients nose and trach almost made me vomit. I didn't see it, but i saw the maggots in the cup. The house Dr said he has never seen that many maggots before.

    Didn't happen to me (thank God) but to a coworker just this week: Demented patient in ISO because he was growing MRSA and other organisms in his heavily draining scrotal wound was constantly fingering the wound, took his hands out from under the sheets and "got your nose!" We all wore masks from then on.
