When we had a patient die at the prison we'd say "he bagged and tagged!"

I thought this was to be a discussion about what lint magnets dark colored scrubs are. But, they hide blood...
I admit I thought the same thing. I'm glad I clicked on the thread though..I am kind of proud that one of my earlier posts was worthy of a Davey Do cartoon!
Been there,done that, ASN, RN
M'kay. I thought I had a dark sense of humor. Over the top for me.... but you all enjoy.
I once had a lovely LOL in LTC whose dementia was advanced to the point where she didn't really know where she was but thought she was on a cruise ship. Every morning and evening she would "Go out on the Lido Deck to take the air. When she would get ready to go for her evening stroll she would always stop by the nurses station and ask if the "Cabin Steward" could do turn-down service before she returned.I really liked her.Hppy
I really liked her.
That's actually pretty awesome. If a person has to be stuck in a delusion it's not a bad thing for the delusion to be so much better than reality. Given a choice would you knowingly live out the rest of your days on a lovely cruise ship or in a nursing home? Good for her dementia brain for making that choice for her.
Oh mannn....I thought I'd go with a lighter story, but I've got much darker ones. I present to you my sliding scale of "healthcare dark humor stories":
*Edit* Sorry for the giant image - can't figure out how to re-size it . Also note all names have been changed to protect the innocent and appease the HIPPA gods.

This made me cry, A++++
Story of my own:
I work in ED, had a woman w/ mental health hx (schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, etc.) present by EMS. EMS says they were called by the boyfriend who states the patient was feeding her baby beer from a sippy cup. Anyway we're settling her in, asking her to undress, attempting to collect labs, etc. and she's talking about not taking off her pants as the devil will get her pregnant etc etc. As I'm reorienting her during this process she sees my ID badge w/ my picture and we have this conversation:
patient: *pointing at my picture* "who is that?"
me: "it's me! I know, we all look different when we're not in scrubs."
patient: "no it's not, someone stole your body."
me: "oh? how do you know?"
patient: "she's too pretty to be you."
Can't really help but laugh because the alternative is way worse ahahahha
I thought this was to be a discussion about what lint magnets dark colored scrubs are.
Speaking of lint, Emergent, I was involved in a Recycle Art Show about 15 years ago.
This photograph is one from a shoot by a photographer from the Anomaly Telegraph:
There's always the suffering ICU pts who have already died at least once being kept full code by family. So another nurse and myself thought "Consult to Jesus" should be added to nurse driven orders in Epic.
I believe He likes to write His orders in the old fashioned way:
Problem is, none of us at Wrongway understand Aramaic, so He has to enter the orders into the computer Himself, but He doesn't seem to mind.
He's nothing at all like the doctors who like to play His Father!
In Ms. Doe's mind, we were some rowdy teenage friends of her son who had overstayed our welcome, were drinking "booze" and we had stolen her oven. She kept pointing to her window as the hole where the oven had been.
And here's reliable evidence that is exactly what happened, Zombie!
Ok, Ok, you got me. But to be fair, I EARNED that oven: have you ever tried to remove an oven that was embedded in a wall?! With a sleeping resident 3 feet away?
And I left her a very nice window too.
Oh right down your psyc. Experience....As I may be bipolar or schizophrenic...As I love both dark scrubs, but prefer traditional white...Sorry best I could come up with as I just awaken....Sally
