Inmates are ingenious when it comes to getting over on the system. They have nothing but time to find and exploit a weakness in the system. Go work in corrections, you'll be amazed...

This particular prison was medium custody setting, so the guys were not locked down 23 hours a day. They could go to the rec. yard, the library, attend various classes and some had jobs in the kitchen etc., etc. Lots of time, space and opportunity.

GI bleed poop smells horrid. Way worse than C. diff.

We had a guy who had dropped like 2 grams with one bowel movement that decided he should continue to poop all the way across his room and out in the hallway. He called for a nurse as he stood in the carpeted hallway with bloody stool piled up around his ankles. He was confused, I'll give him that, but damn, I really wish he would have stayed in the room because it smelled up the floor for at least 2 days. We had people coming down from the 6th floor to our floor (1st) and they said they could smell it as soon as they got in the stairwell.

You folks do realize that now all of those lovely young folks that were thinking about entering Nursing as a profession (and come help us alleviate this shortage) are now signing up for the teaching profession after reading this stories? Good grief...
haha, I love these threads. I'm worried I won't be sufficiently prepared for the grossness once I start my clinicals, so I want to kill the idea of gross before I have to see the reality of gross. half the time it's the idea that makes me gag, anyway. I'm actually eating hummus while reading this, too...haha

holy poop, batman.

who'd he have sex with, king kong???

and sex through a stoma???

yowza.

this may be way too much information, even for this thread, but it's recently become popular among some gay men (maybe straight folks too, I wouldn't know) to stick the entire arm up there. I don't know how popular, but I've seen it all over the internet lately. I am gay, and completely grossed out every time somebody talks about this. I don't know who the hell invented this kind of sex or why people get off on it, but it's there all the same. don't get me started on "body-modification" and sex. I used to think I was experienced and jaded...come to find out I'm practically a nun. I wonder if testosterone is a neurotoxin sometimes...

fisting is kinda a joke among internet geeks...one of my friends pointed out that in google trends you can see a huge and sudden increase in google searches for "anal fisting" as soon as broadband internet became widely available in the Czech Republic, which totally wins the "kinkiest nation in the world" award, in my book. (though we're pushing darwin award territory here.) apparently it was popular there for some reason, and it infiltrated the porn industry shortly after they got plentiful internet access. after porn studios started producing it, a bunch of people got the smart idea to try it themselves. I guess it's one of those industries where "new" is exciting and better. if I had to guess what kind of sex ruined a sphincter, this would be at the top of the list.

no sir. not for me. there's more than one way to skin a cat. ain't happenin. *shudder* what ever happened to kisses and cuddles?

Who was the genius that decided that carpeting in a hallway adjoining to a patient area was a good idea!!?

I worked for a staffing agency for a VERY brief while for my first job...it lasted like three weeks. Mostly flu shot clinics and stuff like that, with some private duty thrown in.

Anyway, I had a shift as a nurse for a patient who had come home to die. She had been diagnosed with rectal cancer a short time earlier and was an extremely small woman to begin with; probably didn't weigh 100# soaking wet before she got sick. Between the surgeries for the cancer, which her body was incapable of healing from, and the pressure ulcers she got in her debilitated state, her backside was gone. From her genitals to half-way up her back was completely open. I almost passed out doing her dressing change; she had a Foley in and YOU COULD SEE THE FOLEY BALLOON along with her bones and other abdominal organs. It was by far and away the most horribly disgusting things I have ever seen in my life. And she required sterile wet to dry dressing changes q2hr (why sterile is beyond me, it was already obviously hideously infected, and why wet to dry is again beyond me, because there was so much fluid being produced by her body that there was no way it made any difference wet or dry). Apparently the pressure ulcers and the infected surgical wounds had met in the middle, so to speak, and eaten away all of her tissue. Thank God the cancer had spread to her brain and she was apparently not there at all; she died the shift after mine.

Not as gross, but still pretty bad...doing wet to dry dressing changes on a pressure ulcer on a prolapsed uterus. And the time I had a diabetic with dry gangrene on their foot and their big toe fell off while I was changing the kerlix dressing...I just held it in place and rewrapped it, I was so freaked out. Then I forgot to warn the oncoming shift about what had happened. Oops.

I had one similar to Mama D. Had a lady with rectal cancer. She didn't want to "burden" her children with her illness. Was the primary babysitter for her young grandchildren. While at their homes she would take the babys' diapers and put them in her pants for the secretions. By the time the family suspected something was wrong (the diapers weren't containing the smell any longer) the cancer had eaten away her entire rectal cavity. They went from thinking mom is healthy, to mom has cancer, to mom is dying in a matter of 3 days. By the time she came to me I could put my entire fist up to my wrist in her open coccyx. Every time I spread her cheeks apart to dress it she screamed bloody murder. Finally, started her on a morphine drip and got pain under control. She died a day later, sad, sad, sad. People really don't do their loved ones any favors when they "protect" them.
