Wow....Just Wow.

  1. I have a woman in my unit that we're trying to push fluids for. She's had chronic urinary tract infections. Well, during the night she isn't very coherent. I try to get her to drink, but she will only take a drink or two and then not open her mouth (even if she says that she wants another drink). So, last night my manager asks me if I got her to drink anything, and I told her exactly what I just said at the beginning of this post. Her reply was "Doesn't she sleep with her mouth open?"
