Thinking about All Nurses....

  1. Do you ever think of something that you read on all nurses at inappropriate times?

    Last night I had a patient whom was HIV and hep c positive. I went in to their room and there was a piece of gauze and tape on the ground with a bit of dried blood on it...

    I thought to myself, "that poster the other day would have blown an aneurysm"

    I really tried my best to hold it together so I wouldn't look like a lunatic laughing randomly and inappropriately.

    Yes. You guys make me laugh even when I'm not here.

    I have done that😄 if I hear someone say something really 'interesting' (misinformed) about nursing I'll think "ooo if you posted that thought up on allnurses, you might learn a thing or two".

    Edited because I hit reply too soon.

    Yep, AN occasionally creeps into real life. I found myself referring to a know it all already student as a "special snowflake." Never heard that term anywhere else but here and got a couple strange looks.

    When **** happens, I always think about what a great story it will make for AN in about six months -- or however long it takes me to be able to laugh at it.

    An acquaintance I met on the job that I discovered frequents this place, likes to do some off site AN story telling with me. Whenever we talk, we have to fill each other in on AN tidbits.

    I use a fair number of anecdotes from AN in my lectures (hey, can't just read those power points you know!).

    My daughter actually did a paper for her psych 101 class on "special snowflake" syndrome- I think she tied it into narcissistic personality disorder. Or something like that.

    You people do pop into my head at weird times. I can't decide if that's good or bad....
