  1. Halloween Humor: There's A Dog Loose!

    We had plans for children to visit the long-term care facility I worked at and we were going to hand out candy. I thought it might just liven things up a bit if I were to dress up. Plus, it isn't so uncommon to for nurses to dress up in nursing homes...
  2. JAWS - Medical Breakthrough?

    The House Supervisor that night was a good friend to all of us. She was a wonderful, spirited nurse who went out of her way to be helpful to us all, and had a great sense of humor. Dr. "B", who is a diabetologist, decided to give me an order for...
  3. 1) "You're so smart, you should have gone to medical school." I AM smart---that's why I became a nurse instead of enduring 80-hour work weeks and giving up sleep for eight years. 2) "It must be great to be a nurse---you get to date all those sex...

    Night Nurse: Just Call Me Grace

    I'm not kidding. Now, I have been blessed with a good many talents, but the ability to walk and chew gum at the same time is not among them. My mother used to say I could trip over smoke. I'd walk over to a window to look outside and knock mysel...
  5. The Voice of God

    This man was usually compliant and oriented during the day but nighttime was a different story. But at least he was "pleasantly confused". As in, if he pulled out an IV or began yelling at the characters on TV, he would apologize when I asked him to ...
  6. Opportunities to practice skills often came in waves with proclaimed "learning opportunity" attached to tasks that others didn't want to do. I was OK with this approach because I really wanted to learn and help out. So the days came where it was my t...
  7. Marvin the Painted Lady

    Our local pharmacy supplied all of our residents with their medication and the pharmacist was a grouchy man, who hated anything to do with our nursing home. The pharmacist had a bad habit of only labeling mediation with the resident's last name and f...
  8. Caught with His Pants Down

    One of the guys was a very kind professional who wanted to become a nurse for all the right reasons. He really wanted to help people, not just make money. Unfortunately, he had never been in a hospital or convalescent home, had never worked as a nurs...
  9. What a Nightmare.... (Humorous)

    Finally, I realize that I have dried tooth paste on the side of my mouth. I excuse myself and wash it off. While doing that I realize that my hair is still in the pony tail that I put it in before I went to bed. Oh joy. I wet my hands and run my fing...
  10. So, one day my manager gave me the choice... go home or go to the ER and help them out. She assured me that I would just stock shelves and help out the nurses and not actually take care of any patients since I had not taken care of an adult pt since ...

    The Stumblebutt Chronicles

    To say that I loathe the 0900 med pass at my SNF would be the understatement of the year. First of all, being able to concentrate on the pass itself is impossible in the face of almost constant interruptions, and with my challenges in that arena I'm ...
  12. Thanksgiving Humor

    I look forward to the holiday season all year long. The day came and I went to work a little less than enthusiastically. I didn't want to be there, but I realized that my patients needed me regardless. The cafeteria personnel had informed u...
  13. Farting Is Still Funny!

    Further review of her chart showed that the patient's medical history included a bowel resectioning, wound evisceration (a complication of hysterectomy), and what started all of these problems was "unexplained weight loss." She had been in and o...
  14. Misadventures in Nursing

    Now, I have a larger audience and possibly even get a prize to boot. The readers can thank me later (or give this article a high rating) for giving them the much-needed dose of humor in their stressful life, even if it's just an "I-didn't-get-it" smi...
  15. If I remember correctly, this government-owned charity institution I was in had more than 10 wards distributed in 3 buildings. A gamut of tropical & other infectious disease cases can be found here with pulmonary tuberculosis giving the most admi...
  16. I normally worked critical care but would occasionally work in the ER if it was busy. On this evening we got a call that an ambulance was bringing in yet another of the motorcyclists who seemed to have a way with running into things. That Summer, amo...
  17. Plus, I had heard many many stories my whole life that centered around the funny and sometimes crazy tactics that residents would pull, but was I ready for what lies ahead? I went on to C.N.A. training and completed the course in what seemed lik...
  18. Thoughts kept swirling in my mind: why did I pick psych next?... why did the med tech staff have to be on skeleton duty that day?...and WHY was there a lot of stool specimens coming on my shift? I would've wanted to put an advisory requesting that al...
  19. Drool Nurse & the Lesson He learned

    I'm just an average student when it comes to the theoretical part, but I rock in the actual clinical application. I prefer going to and fro rather than just sitting down doing paperwork. I also see to it that I finish what I start, even if it means w...

    Epic (Nursing) FAILS!

    I once destroyed a patient room within five minutes of starting my shift. It was fortunate that the two ladies who occupied the semi-private room were AA & O and had a sense of humor. You have to know your shift is going to be a bad one when...
  21. Take the wearing of Halloween costumes. I've donned all sorts of crazy things in the name of fun, including a streetwalker outfit that almost got me arrested once, and a cowboy's gun belt that some kid stole the fake pistol out of and held it against...
