Possible new (nursing) drinking game

Posted

Specializes in school nurse. Has 28 years experience.

Somebody help me out here. I'm seeing a great new nursing party drinking game. Something like every time you see a post title with !!!!, or ADN/BSN, or any derivative of NETY you have to toss one back. Any additions to the theme...?

Take a drink every time a student says "I feel like I'm going to puke". I'd be quite the sight by end of day. And I'd be the ONLY one puking too!

how about "i don't feel good." i'd be tanked by lunch time

Anything that starts with "Well, yesterday................................." I would be passed out by 9:22 every morning.

Every time I get that attempt at the sad, "I don't feel good" frowny face, complete with rubbing the tummy or hand on the forehead and lower lip jutting out.

BOOM--tanked by kindergarten lunch, guaranteed.

You've been blessed if you don't know. It's the acronym for the ubiquitous complaint that "nurses eat their young"... Search the general nursing section if you're curious.

How about every complaint that just started "like a minute ago".

Luckily we don't have any of that here in the School Nurses forum. I love this place!

For me it would everything time I had this type of exchange:

Student: My ankle hurts. I twisted it at home on Saturday.

(It is now Tuesday, 20 minutes before the end of the school day. Student walked into the office normally, no signs of distress on ankle.)

Me: Oh? Do you parents know you injured your ankle.

Student: Yep.

Me: Do you do anything to treat the injury at home?

Student: Nope. It didn't hurt until just now. Can I have an ice pack?

OMG! Thanks for the laugh! I needed it so badly today! Why do I have to explain over and over again why the 5th grader with a concussion cannot "just play volleyball" at gym class? The teachers don't want to say no, they want me to be the bad guy!

My most heard line from students is "I need some ice..."

"I have been sneezing nonstop for 2 days, can you tell me why?" 20 minutes before final bell. Never once sneezed in the clinic or while waiting in the office. I'm taking a drink on that one!
