Have You Ever Passed Gas And Blamed It On A Resident?

  1. I'm an LPN at a LTC facility. While passing meds I also passed gas just outside the room of a resident as I was preparing the medications on the night shift. At least half of the residents wear briefs and need the assistance of aids when they have a BM, so it's not uncommon to sometimes have a crinkled nose and forehead when walking the hallway. My coworker passed by me about 30 seconds after I let loose. She said, "man that stinks!" I responded, "yeah, they have to spray next time she is changed."

    I guess it depends on how close the co-worker is and the volume of the gas release.
