Deceiving the Nurse...

  1. ~ Deceiving the Nurse ~

    Harold was an old man, he was sick, and he was in the hospital.
    There was one young nurse that just drove him crazy. Every time she
    came in, she would talk to him like he was a little child. She
    would say in a patronizing tone of voice, "And how are we doing this
    morning, or are we ready for a bath, or are we hungry?"

    Old Harold had had enough of this particular nurse. One day, Old
    Harold had received breakfast, and pulled the juice off the tray,
    and put it on his bed side stand. He had been given a Urine Bottle
    to fill for testing. The juice was apple juice. So..... you know
    where the juice went.

    The nurse came in a little later and picked up the urine bottle.
    She looks at it. "My, but it seems we are a little cloudy

    At this, Old Harold snatched the bottle out of her hand, pops off
    the top, and drinks it down, saying, "Well, I'll run it through
    again, and maybe I can filter it better this time."

    The nurse fainted...... and Old Harold just smiled.

    Hey...I had a patient who really did that once. He was a prankster and loved playing jokes on the staff. When he drank from his clean urinal, the nurse screamed.

    That was really a good one but I could never get past it being a urinal and it would seem dirty even if it was brand new. That is like nurses who put chips in a new bedpan for a party when they have nothing else to use. SORRY, I will NEVER eat anything out of that pan!! LOL!!
