- 1Oct 2, '02 by sloddesoltook care of an elderly lady that had forgotten to put hercar in park when she went to check her mail. Her car, a early 70's buick very large ran over her. point of impact was mid thigh and it rolled over her head. she was lucky it was soft ground. Was asked by the surgeon to clean her up and prep for surgery. touched her face it was like touching a jello mold, face just quivered called the surgeon over without saying any thing touched her face again he just shook his head rushed her to surgery managed to survive with a 3 month stay in ICU. not quite as bad but more personally traumatic was trying to stand up after a cycling accident and looking down to see my tibia on the outside instead of where it belonged

2) worked in a FP office,....boil on back...not nearly as bad as ones described here..but it was sooo funny..doc injected the local and the increase in inner-boil pressure caused pus to ooze out his pores....
3) gentleman with colectomy in home care, ns w->d open wound abdomen..healed to just a tunnel, but just didn't wanna completely heal...he would remove dressing and shower prior to our arrival...showers are WONDERFUL!!!! for open wounds!!! seriously!!! anyhoo....one day there was what looked like a piece of slough protruding from the wound..so i gently tugged....it was a sac in which there was an encapsulated pustulated suture..i swear there was literally a green cloud came out with it..client and i both were gagging...we laughed after our stomachs settled...but wow...he healed quickly after that...
4) quad with a subolecranon bursitis...burst open...packable with guaze packing strips... eventually healed...we thought... we thought wrong....lol...a month or 2 or 3 later...had an abcessy area proximal to that site...one day i went...removed dressing...was "milking" the elbow to geet out some of the drainage...this little thing is sticking out...it was a tiny piece of gauze....wow...incident report time....so whacked....has never had a problem with that elbow since...

Thanx for reminding me. Was holding cheeks so an ER resident could shoot local into a perianal abcess. Needless to say when it blew, she caught most of it....in her HAIR! She turned the same color as that pus and bolted for the shower. I wonder if I shoulda told her to back up?
