They told me I needed a room that was at least 8 x 10 and had a sink. We don;t have that here.

We used the stage in the cafetorium. They didn't need a sink, however.

SaltineQueen's story reminded me of a story I have from nursing school. I had a patient who came in for a kidney infection and had a surprise necrotic big toe. I observed her doctor move her bed sheet and say "we need to amputate this today or it's going to fall off." Guys, this toe was DANGLING. She responded by saying "wow I didn't know it was that loose."

They have a mobile RV that goes around to various schools/locations here. It used to pull up to the Health Department/WIC office when I worked there. It was always packed.

I have patients who have rotten teeth since we see a significant amount of charity cancer cases, probably 2-3/day. They never get them cleaned or taken care of before chemotherapy and the chemo just makes them worse. That smell is just....awful. I put lavender or peppermint in my mask when accessing their ports.

Try not to judge the parents too hard... my siblings and I all have terrible teeth and are very cavity prone, and we brushed twice a day. One brother kept breaking his teeth before being old enough to get cavities. The dentist said that it could be acidic saliva? Regardless, most of my teeth were filled young. Now, my dentist said I can expect a root canal a year as the fillings need to be replaced. Oh goody.

Not work related, but a skeptics podcast I listen to is investigating urine therapy.

Which is when you drink your own urine to heal your body. I have gagged.

What is the name of the podcast? I love listening to stuff like this. I just discovered the podcast Sawbones - they talk about all kinds of medical stuff, history etc.

Mouth stuff always grosses me out, though. i would not have been much help to that kid.

I just had a parent tell me she " cures" her kids ear infections by pouring urine in his ear!!! Lets just say my RNF was not able to hide my shock and horror for that kid. I didnt even get around to asking who's urine was going in the kids ear. SMH!
