Ok, this is EXTREMELY UNCONVENTIONAL QUESTION! I know this is going to leave some nurses gasping thinking, 'Why on earth is he asking this? I know but on Allnurses I have gotten a huge amount of good laughs. The medical field is of such profound depth, and reading stories and learning soooooooooooooooooooooooooooo much is just a fraction of what you can do here. You can also laugh yourself into the position where your sides are hurting and you end up gasping for a breath. I mean, come on. A Clinitron bed mattress being punctured, sending those beads flying and lots of other things. What I am going to ask is you to tell me your strange specialty bed stories. I would like this thread to be pages and pages and
Pages long. If you have had a strange bed story. Examples might be your experience with Clinitron beds gone wrong, TotalCare bed hoses coming disconnected during a Patient Percussion And Vibration treatment, or something really strange like that. This could involve the Critical care beds with the air mattress, the RotoProne bed, The RotoRest Bed, the Clinitron bed, The Triadyne bed, etc. I've often wondered what would be the result of a disconnection of One of the hoses of a TotalCare bed hoses during Continuous Lateral Rotation Therapy or Percussion And Vibration treatment Or if you have had a popping air mattress when you it the bed in Max Inflate Mode. I've heard a couple of strange stories on here already. Not to mention any names. I am going to list what I know so far. A rather painful story is a nurse accidentally has her foot under the Clinitron bed. I'm glad she was all right. I'm sure that HAD TO HURT! Next story is a Clinitron bed bed air mattress being punctured accidental sending beads floating ALL OVER, sending people sliding and not that this is funny, but rather interesting. Another rather strange story was a patient who had died on the Clinitron bed and after the bed had been turned off, it was turned back on so that the family could visit the Patient and the bed inflating in sections causing the Patient to sit up rather, when the family arrived. Another story including liquid stool making s strange sound and rather boiling from the Clinitron bed. I consider this rather interesting. Specialty beds are so interesting, and I'm sure can make numerous strange and at times funny stories to hear/Read. On another forum on another website, there is a post entitled 'Why RotoProne bed sucks,' or something like that a nurse is venting about the high tech RotoProne bed that malfunctioned whilst the Patient was in the PRONE POSITION, thus causing them to have to CUT THE Patient OUT PRONE. WOW, In thinking, these specialty beds are truly prone to strange and funny stories. A nurse falling into the Beads of a Clinitron bed could be funny if a Patient was not injured m. Thank you and all at Allnurses for your greatness.
