    You Know You're a Nurse When...

    Some of our parenteral nutrition lipids come in glass bottles still, with the stoppers and the aluminum disc. So does IV etoh.

    D50 rectal?

    We have Glucagon we can give IM or SQ if a pt is unconscious with a low blood sugar and no IV site. We also have the gel for an alert pt with no IV access. The nice thing about all this is that we have the protocol to treat the low blood sugar with any of these routes including IV D50, and *then* call the physician. In fact, they expect this.

    A Morbid Poll I know.

    Eeeeek! Thinking about that really creeped me out! Sounds like something from a horror movie. I think I would want to be cremated and turned into a reef ball to help rebuild coral.

    Song lyrics that remind you of nursing...

    U2, Wild Honey "Slow down, slow down my beating heart, slow down..." for pts in rapid a-fib, SVT or V-Tach, etc :heartbeat:redbeathe

    that's wonderful that you made sure the patient and his daughters were able to say goodbye :redbeathe:redbeathe

    What's Your Best Nursing Ghost Story?

    We have an empty unit in our hospital currently. It still has supplies on it, so we go up there occasionally (actually daily) to snag some when we are out of something, especially on nights. One nurse went a-borrowing up there and saw a call-light on. It lit quite the fire under her tush, and she came right down again freaked out. I was tempted to go up there and cruise the halls but chickened out since no one wanted to accompany me.

    Not to be too much of a beach:cool:, but could you guys take this outside, the OT discussion that is. Gracey

    Strange things found on (or in) a pt.

    Yup, I agree. Too bad it got written off.

    so do we, only they have large plexiglass covers that hang about a foot over them, probably to prevent pts from using them as toilets :dance:

    Garlic 'beats hospital superbug'

    I don't think it would be possible to overdose on garlic, from a health standpoint anyway. Especially when it's fresh. I love cooking with it. Once a year we make this tonic that has garlic, onions, hot peppers, horse radish, Bragg's cider vinegar and ginger. We put it all through a blender and make several batches, then store it in glass jars and take several spoonfuls when we're sick or when we're exposed to someone else's illness. It works great! Taste pretty hot, but it works.

    Funny dreams about your job as a nurse

    yesterday I had a dream that I was planning to call in due to a migraine but couldn't seem to get my cell phone dialed to the hospital's staffing office, or the supervisor's number
  13. Would you quit being such a #$%&@ to everyone who comes within 5 feet of your mother's room? Every single @#$% time she's admitted you have to make a complete #$% of yourself by being so demanding and rude and downright impossible and mean. If there is so much #$%& you dislike about this hospital and our care, then why the @#$% do you keep bringing her back here? Go away! Stop making nurses cry. And don't think I've forgotten that I used to go to your church. Do they all know you act this way? Get that fake smile off your face before I smack it off, #$%&@

    Unbelievable Family Members

    I agree. That's worth getting a petition going about, not that I have any idea how to do that.

    You Know You're a Nurse When...

    you know you're a nurse when you watch a battle scene in a narnia video and when one of the brothers gets stabbed:cry:, you immediately start doing a mental ABC on him, and in a scene a little later when he's on the ground gasping with rapid shallow breaths you think "he needs an airway..." i can't watch that movie without doing that.
