    Best Nurse Puns

    Or.... Just had this thought. Do we open this thread and make it the new Game of Groans? More people will see it here and hopefully contribute.

    Just came across this thread and you beat me to it Rose_Queen. To anyone else who sees these, come over to the Game of Groans thread. Some awful puns and some really good funnies there. Everyone welcome.

    I hope everyone had a safe and happy New Year. Time for some silliness that has nothing to do with politicians (Yours and ours). I bought a special alarm clock for politicians. It's got a schmooze button and two faces. Correlat...

    OR set-up and generators

    Thank you for clarifying. Can't give up to date information as I have not been in a theatre (except as a patient) for a long time. When I was there I didn't notice any big machinery, everything was on wheeled trolleys if it was required. UK has ...

    OR set-up and generators

    Curious exactly what you mean? What kind of generators are you talking about? What kind of procedures require "generators". There are specific rules(laws) in place to prevent machinery being too big to handle. Just out of further curio...

    From sister to tissue viability

    Why do you give a flying ** what others think? Is it a step back? At worst it is a sideways step. Piss poor conditions, piss poor colleagues and poor working conditions. Exactly, because of the toxic envir...

    Game of Groans

    Hello all, how are you doing? Hope the bad weather in America is not causing you too much trouble. I have put together (stolen) a few Christmas funnies. I hope you enjoy them. I have given the web address I stole them from at the bottom. ...

    Band 5 to band 7 - how long??

    You are a "worker from another field," if you want to know what nursing is about then you need to become a nurse or talk to real life nurses. Where in any of this old thread is there bullying? What there is, is experienced nurses who have bee...

    Game of Groans

    Just remembered that America is playing in the FIFA World Cup later today against Wales and as it is in the middle east I am reminded of this; (it sounds better spoken out loud) The citizens of Quatar don't like The Flintstones, but the people o...

    Game of Groans

    Good afternoon all. A miserable day in Scotland, we have had a months worth of rain in 2 days so a bit of flooding around. Never mind, let's see if I can cheer everyone up. My house was haunted by a poltergeist so I got a man in to ...

    Game of Groans

    Good afternoon/morning/evening all. Some more silliness, enjoy. Get free portraits of loved ones by simply reporting them for serious crimes and describing them to police sketch artists. Of course I can't afford a voice activate...

    Game of Groans

    Hello all, hope you had a good week. I don't really work well under pressure. Or under any other circumstances for that matter. A real couple of groaners here; Q: What word is always spelled wrong in the dictionary? A: Wron...
