    NO he did not...
    ...put eye drops on a glass eye.
    (Yep he did and the patient exclaimed..."euh...scuse-me but I am blind on this side")

    No she did not: In 1st semester we were in skills lab learning how to insert NG tubes.. She asked "Is it possible to put an NG tube through your ear canal?"

    Our teacher replied "Uh... Have you had anatomy and physiology? Isn't that a pre-req?!"

    About 10 minutes later the same girl asked "What does nausea mean?"

    Needless to say she is a semester behind our group now...

    No she didn't! While a student was playing poker with a psych patient in a local psych hospital, the student (who happened to be quite the poker player) noticed the patient was cheating. She slapper her hand down on the table, stood up, and said, "I don't care if you are crazy, you ain't gonna cheat me at poker!". :chuckle One of our teachers told us this story during our prep for time at this hosptial.
    That was the funniest stuff I have heard all day. Thanks for the laugh:spin:

    No she did not say to a patient with bilateral metatarsal amputations as she was rolling his bedside table in front of him for dinner. "Watch your feet I don't want to chop your toes off." oh yes she did it was me when I was in nursing school. In the same room I was caring for an alcoholic. At the end of the shift I belted out. "Oh, what a day I can't wait to go home and have a nice cold beer" take foot insert into mouth.....far very far
    I am crying over here, lol

    No she did not....

    Say to the pt with terminal thyroid cancer intubated and on vent tthat was only thing keeping cancer from suffocating and closing airway AND waiting for family to gather for same said vent to be removed and to expire peacefully later same day,

    "I bet you can't wait to get that vent removed!"

    Pt was my mom, nurse got death stares from everyone and told to go read the chart, not in a nice way.

    No she did not hold meds/feeds 8hours post TEE as per protocol awaiting the patient's gag reflex to come back when the patient had an NG feeding tube and had clearly failed a swallowing study...Hmmm...

    :spin:yes this was also the instruction given to us by our clinical instructors, once the patient gets to know that you are counting their respiration, they do try to regulate their breathing pattern.

    but....thats how i do it. granted i hold their wrist, count their pulses first then continue to hold their wrist and look at the clock every so often while watching their chest rise and fall.

    you do count people's respirations by holding the pt's wrists and looking at the clock. alot of health care professionals do it that way. its so that the patient doesnt know youre counting their respirations and change their breathing pattern.

    pretty slick, eh?

    OMG how scary! I can't imagine the damage phenergan would do. Yikes!
    Imagine away. There are numerous cases of MDs infusing vincristine intrathecally "by accident".

    No she did not remove an IV with no problem and then put the band-aid over a MOLE instead of the IV site! Yes, it was me :selfbonk:

    I'm so embarrassed!

    At some hospitals, they don't require a second nurse to check insulin. That's the case at the hospital I'm at this semester.

    so then --- where was the instructor - and why didn't they supervise? That's scary!!!
