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

    My husband's (deceased) grandmother always told the family that when naming a baby, you should first imagine what it would look like on a name plate sitting on the desk of a banker or some-such occupation and take it from there - I think if I ever w...
  2. Funniest thing a new nurse said/charted/asked...

    my first year out of nursing school, I had a surgical patient who seemed to always be sleeping when his wife came in to visit (I think he wanted some peace and quiet because she was quite the talker) - one day, she commented that he seemed to be slee...
  3. phone calls no outsider would believe

    I've finally stopped laughing long enough to be able to post! When I worked in OB, I had someone call and was masturbating to the answers that I was giving them about breast-feeding questions - the situation didn't actually get weird and suspicious u...
  4. Think I could get fired for this.....

    I find this part of the original post very interesting - personally, I wouldn't be thrilled to be pulled to be a CNA (making my normal $$ would sweeten the pot, however ) but I would do it - I would also expect that ALL of the LPN's take turns - did...

  7. What's Your Best Nursing Ghost Story?

    there is a 5 day novena that you can do that involves St Therese "The Little Flower" - among other things, you say a little prayer that asks for her to "please pick a rose from the heavenly garden and send it to me with a message of love" and for her...
  8. What's Your Best Nursing Ghost Story?

    Brrrrrr...... When I regained consciousness, I probably would have had to change my pants, if you know what I mean.........
  9. What exactly ARE the wrong reasons?

    I love it!!! I would sooooo wear that t-shirt out if I had one....... my husband once told a friend of ours "Nothing shocks my wife when it comes to the human body - she's seen more naked people than a porn flick director!" - um, thanks hon.............
  10. Rules for the ER (long)

    BTW, did any of those Pollyanna/do-gooder/losers who posted that this thread and the ER nurses who contributed and those of us who aren't ER nurses but laughed our butts off anyway were "mean" even read the disclaimer that preceded the OP's post?
  11. Rules for the ER (long)

    You know, I have to hand it to you - in spite of the responses to your, hm, how shall I say, naive opinion, you have the guts/cojones/stupidity to post again. What determination - you obviously aren't one who backs down from a fight - maybe when you ...
  12. Rules for the ER (long)

    oops sorry.....
  13. Name that part. Words patients use for their own anatomy.

    I grew up saying "John Thomas" in Canada but my friends and I got that from the Monty Python movie "The Meaning of Life".... whether they are right or wrong, I know the "Austin Powers" movies have given people some new words (supposedly British) to u...
  14. Name that part. Words patients use for their own anatomy.

    I'm from Canada and we say "bum" (well, everyone in my part of Canada anyway) and my youngest corrected me one day and said "Um, Mama, here in the USA, we call it a "butt"!" - to which I replied "Oh give your mother a break - she's a foreigner!" - th...
