    What's The Weirdest Name You've Heard A Patient Name Her Baby?

    I work in a peds clinic right now. We had twin girls: Paisley and Poppy. Another mom came in the other day. She had 6 kids. Only 3 of them were with her. They were named Corey, Jacorey, and Corlie. Dad's name is Corey. SMH

    Night Nurse: Just Call Me Grace

    OMG I'm so glad I'm not the only clutz out there! I literally trip over air, walk into walls, drop stuff, anything you name it, I do it.

    Not told about a contact isolation patient!

    No. I went and got one to put on his door as soon as I found out.
  7. i found this post on the "the worst thing a patient has come to the er with" thread. just wondering if anyone would care to share their stories that are similar to these? looking for happy endings to bad situations.
  8. So today I was in clinicals doing a new admit on a male with previous history of MRSA. While I was taking his BP, he was holding onto my arm. At this point I didn't know anything. A classmate came to the room and called me outside. Told me that she just found out he was on contact isolation and the nurses forgot to tell us. Of course I had gloves on but my arm was bare. I wasn't sneezed on or anything like that but it still freaked me out. She said that she was just told about it and that the nurses forgot to mention it to us. I immediately washed my self from elbows to finger tips and was so worried. I just bothers me that they "forgot" to tell us. I went and got all the isolation stuff, gowns, disposable stethescope, etc. and put everything in the room and put the sign on the door, wiped down all my equipment used. I then came home and bleached my whites in hot water. I know it probably isn't a big deal, just scared me is all.

    Viagra for women...

    I was put on Wellbutrin! I DID NOTHING AT ALL! My doctor thought it would help with the depression and sexual dysfunction both. Did nothing for either of them! It makes me so angry :angryfire because I feel like NOTHING can be done to help me! AGAIN, NOT ASKING FOR ADVICE. JUST SHARING MY SIDE OF THE ISSUE.

    Viagra for women...

    I have talked to my doctor. This is the 3rd doctor I have been to and no one seems to care. They keep telling me it's just depression or stress.:argue: I have taken both Welbutrin and Xanax and NOTHING helps. I feel so horrible for my husband but he says he completely understands that it is not my fault and that it's just something we have to deal with. Any doctor that I have been through just trys to give me depression meds for it and I feel it makes it worse. I feel hopeless and that I will NEVER be normal again. My husband and I have only been married for 2 years! I have a lifetime left to go through this. It's aweful.

    Viagra for women...

    I am 24 and I have it. I have been with my husband since I was 16 and we have been married for 2 years. It started when I was about 19. It's horrible knowing that nothing can be done for women but so many things can be done for men.
