As a nurse, you've certainly heard doctors say some rather confounding things. As part of our 2019 celebration of National Nurses Week, we want you to share some of those things that come from the mouths of doctors which leave you shaking your head. Whether it's funny or infuriating, we want to hear it. You could win $250 courtesy of Jacksonville University just for sharing! Winners will be announced May 13, 2019.

The day after I gave a patient a Harris flush to help her pass gas,the doctor stopped by to see her and said to her "we have just had  funeral services for that nurse that got blown away by your gas" !

Still makes me laugh to this day.

Surgeon was placing an elderly woman's leg in a Hana traction boot before surgery and noticed the periwick catheter.

Surgeon: "What the hell is that? I've never had a patient so bold as to bring their vibrator with them to surgery."

Me: "This is our external female catheter that uses a wall suction. I heard it is quite...stimulating."

Just received a new ICU admission and was getting patient settled in bed.  Had patient turned on side getting rid of extra linen.  Doctor came in to see patient and wanted to do rectal exam.  Since patient was already in position he said “you have to strike while the iron is hot!”.

“What do you think? Should I tap that?”   Realized he was referring to a pleural effusion on a chest x-ray.
