Watch where you're pointing that nail gun.

No one was injured in this situation, but still, the potential was there.

A few years ago the geriatric psych unit was undergoing a renovation and patient census was kept to a minimum. During the day, the geriatric psych patients were transferred to the empty child psych unit and returned in the evening.

The construction workers left in the community room, among other tools, a 6 foot fiberglass rod with a sharp metallic point. I came in to work an 8 hour MN and found the rod in the open nurses station, that could have been easily accessed by patients. I asked an evening coworker where the rod had come from.

"I found it in the community room", she said, "And (our supervisor) told me to leave it at the nurses station for the construction workers".

I locked the rod in an unused room and made this for the old "Jacob Rockstar-RN Psych Nurse Action Figure" thread:

🍻 🍺 Make sure you know what lies beyond closed doors before you decide to enter.

Is it the bathroom?

Is it the basement?

Attempting to commit suicide by swallowing fireworks and a lit match. 

(Unsuccessful.)

Different patient — never, ever transport muriatic acid in an Ocean Spray cran-apple juice bottle. But if you do, for pity's sake, don't mistake it for your water bottle and take a big swig. 

(Accidental, fatal.)

Screwdriver + rectum = bowel perforation. And you say you don't know how it got in there.

This happened a long time ago:  When you're in the hospital being worked up to be a kidney donor to your first cousin (with whom you were raised like brothers) and decide to take an unsanctioned visit to the bar down the street with your roommate, don't take the "shortcut" back.  The short cut is along the train tracks, and when the train comes by while you're "chilling" on the tracks, it tends to be unforgiving.  Instead of being a living related donor, you might just be a cadaver donor instead.

And if it's elevator doors you're forcing open, make sure the elevator is actually there before you step through.

A hairbrush is not a sex toy, should not be inserted bristles first, rectally, by your 22 year old boyfriend, at age 16, when your parents are overseas....

Just because it might fit doesn't mean it should be in there.

Mine is minor compared to some...but as a school nurse there's not a whole lotta big excitement.

Any little, "It hurts when I do this."

Me, "Then stop doing that." 🤷‍♀️

Red wine enemas are NOT sexy............
