Nurse asked by surgeon to find plug in stool

Nurses Humor



Discovered this while reading The Cause of acute appendicitis - the hydro-mechanics in acute appendicitis, by Zwalenburg (Cal West Med. 1926 Nov; 25(5): 616)

Today, it would be worth ~ $168 to play with stool and find a fecalith or something similar. Fun times.

P.S. Please feel free to move this post anywhere you deem right, I haven't posted in a while.

This is definitely WEIRD! But seeing as it was in 1926, maybe not so weird after all. So, it never did say if the plug in question was located? Today there would be multiple lawsuits.
