I walked in to do my assessment, and my pt asked "how much is the shrimp?"

Miss K used to tell me,"I love you bunches." I miss hearing her say those words which never failed to melt my heart (I am sitting here with a goofy smile on my face as I recall her words).

We had a 92 year old man on our unit about a year ago. He was so cute but soooooo confused. He kept calling the nurses into his room and telling us that we had to call his mom because she had no idea where he was and she was probably worried sick about him! We all commented that he must have been a really good boy when he was young to be so concerned with his mother's worries. :redbeathe

I also love when you are running around a sweaty mess with your hair thrown up and make up running down your face and sweat stains under your arms, and the patient still calls you pretty LOL.

I had a lady with a hip fx that would need surgery. She had NO SHORT TERM memory at all. She kept asking the same questions over and over. Her family even put a note beside her bed that said "You are in the hospital because you fell and broke your hip".

Her family had to leave. I felt bad for her. Someone left a huge bouquet of balloons for the nurses. I thought they may cheer her up, so I brought them into her room. What a mistake! Every time I went to check on her all she kept asking me was, "Is it my birthday? :balloons:

What a sweetie.

I have had patients and/or family members ask if I'll be back to care for them the next day. Since I am in the float pool, the answer is always "most likely no". When they express disappointment and ask, "But why?? I wish you were coming back tomorrow!" , it always makes me smile, and puts a little bounce in my step. :)

I love this thread!

Miss L always tells me that she is going to take me to Vegas with her.

Miss S telling me that it is her sweet 16th birthday every day. I wish her happy birthday and I swear she has the sweetest laugh. She is 95.
