Just In Time For St. Patrick's Day

  1. Nursing Limericks!!

    When the monitor showed runs of V-tach,
    The nurse gave Joe's sternum a whack.
    With a look of surprise,
    Old Joe opened his eyes.
    Then he said, "My, it's good to be back!"
    Fred's catheter tubing hung down,
    Off the bed, barely clearing the ground.
    Then his nurse, Cindy-Lou,
    Hooked the tube with her shoe.
    Fred's yell was heard all over town!
    Doctor's orders, concise and specific,
    Written clearly, not one hieroglyphic,
    Could be read with great ease.
    All the nurses were pleased.
    They all thought he was terrific ! !

    But . . . .

    When a doctor writes orders and notes
    And you can't figure out what he wrote,
    Just be very firm.
    Confront the big worm
    And shove each worthless page down his throat ! !
    When a "sundowner's" tucked in for the night
    Be sure that his posey's tied tight.
    Or he'll wander around
    Till he finally falls down
    And an incident report you must write.
