Funniest Report

  1. what is the funniest thing that you have heard in report. this is not the funniest, but it was pretty funny at the time. "asthma exasperation"....i was helping a new grad tape report and once she said this we couldn't stop laughing. guess one could tell that it was the end of a long hard night. got to the point where she couldn't even say exacerbation, so i told her just press record and you say asthma and i'll say exacerbation. the next shift must have thought we were crazy or worse. oh well, who cares...... working with fun people is like not even working.

    I have frequently made verbal bloopers when taping report. We had aconfused patient that kept getting out of bed and trying to get into bed with his room mate, so we put a Posey restraint on him. When taping report, instead of saying we poseyed him in bed, I said we foleyed him in. Another time I called a urologist with a consult on a patient that we were haveing difficulty catheterizing. I told the Doc that he couldn't void, and we couldn't castrate him. He asked me what I said, and I repeated the same thing. I still didn't realize what I said until he told me. I was so embarrassed!

    When I was a CNA I was gathering my stuff in the lounge at the end of a long night, and a nurse was in there taping report. She had a Dr Pepper can sitting in front of her, and as she was relaying that she had to call Dr Phifer during the night, she mistakenly said Dr Pepper. It took her a few seconds, but she got this look on her face, stopped the recorder, turned to me and said "Did I just say Dr Pepper?" I shook my head yes, and she just started laughing hysterically, couldn't stop. She finally got her composure, and backed the tape up to do that part over, but she couldn't say the doctors name without breaking into hysterics again and having to stop the tape. When I left the lounge, she was on her third try.

    The thing I thought funniest was that she had erased/taped over the original blooper, so whoever got to listen to that tape would have no clue why she couldn't contain herself!

    (I love working with fun people!)
