    And I am Nurse Mata. Matar is Spanish for "to kill" & introducing myself as the nurse caring for you today might make you a little nervous too if you were admitted to the LTC-Subacute Unit I work at. [IMG]
    Wow, I never thought about that one.

    At the University of Wisconsin Hospital there was a Dr. Doctor. When they overhead paged him they had to remember to add his first name, because if they paged just Dr. Doctor, every doctor in the hospital would respond.

    Wasn't one of his kids in the olympics? I think he was a speed skater.

    Also at UW-Madison Hosp and Clinics............

    does Dr. Bonebreak (ortho) still work there?
    what about Dr. Peters (urology)?

    I think there is/ was a urologist at St Mary's in Madison named Dr Waters as well. I also remember Dr Bonebreak- he used to work at "Methodist" now Meriter years ago in the 70's.

    Next door to my dentists office, there is a urologist there by the name of Dr. Cockburn.

    HA HA HA, that one made me laugh out loud.

    I graduated together with a Nurse. That was her last name. I always wonder about the scenarios she would have - "Hi, I'm Nurse Nurse. I'm going to be your Nurse, today". Or, "what is your name, Nurse? Nurse."

    Accident and Emergency Department in Birmingham boasts a Nurse Payne

    Nurse Hacker scrubs regularly in a London Operating Department

    Sister De'Ath walks the corridors of a hospice in Victoria

    Does Annie Beaver still work in Obstetrics in New York?

    Mrs. Ake, a retired RN, was a specialist nurse in rheumatology

    Kathy Foley was the head of the Catheter Insertion Team (back when they had those in the old days).

    Dr Hui (pronounced "Wee") was a urologist whose wife, a nurse, worked as his office manager. Her name was Pi (pronounced "Pee"). Nurse Cox worked for a different team.

    Chris Feely always favoured complementary therapies - especially therapeutic massage, while Nurse Fang was more at home with Cosmetic Surgery.

    Ed worked with a nun who's last name was Fuchs. He did not know how to pronounce her name - so he asked. And he wanted to die.

    Mary Slaughter could never get a post on the Surgical Unit, and Nurse Cutts was never the 'First Pick' Midwife.

    Sharon Ward - when she gets promoted - will be Sr. Ward.

    Not forgetting Melina, who works on a general medical ward and Nurse Nurse - she goes where she's sent![/QUOTE]

    We have a few interesting names here --

    Dr Allred - ophthalmologist

    Dr Ngo - pronounced 'no' (wonderful pediatrician)

    Dr Oszczakiewicz - don't ask how to pronounce - he has us call him Dr Oz

    Dr Steven King - ER (kinda scary!)

    Dr Achilles - cardiologist (too bad not podiatry :chuckle )

    and my all time favorite....

    Dr Moses - ob-gyn. He actually has a sign in his office, and used to give out t-shirts to his new moms -
