"Goldy" had a fractured femur and was placed in Buck's traction. She would throw her other leg over the suspended one and swing it while singing bawdy songs (I always wondered about her past!). Her nurses, of course, charted all this, and the docs never read anything but the vitals, until the day one MD commented that he couldn't understand why there was NO sign of bone union. We told him. She was in a hip spica the next day.
She was cute, tho. She said to me one day (apropos of nothing that I can remember) "I know what kind of girl you are. It shows in your face. GOD will take care of you!" One of those occasions when you had to leave the room--to laugh.
