I have been debating over whether to share this or not. I've been up laughing all night though, and it's 0517! OK, so i put the patient in high stirrups for perirectal abscess. The other nurse helps me position the fellow and then we stare at each other in awe! Some nurse had marked the rectum "yes"...(site verification)
#1). what nimwit nurse would do that?
#2). how many rectums does a person have?
#3). what patient would let her/him?
If I were that patient, I would have at that point walked my absessed butt out of there! Geez! If the doc can't find my rectum he sure as hell won't be doing an I&D on it!!!

yes, it probably was done by a well intended nurse, but good grief! Have we lost all common sense?
Maybe I should say "anus" to be more specific.
