From a layperson's point of view, what do you think are some of the weirdest things you've done in "real" life that was nursing related?Several years ago, one of the kids had stitches that were going to be ready to be removed during our annual camping trip/family reunion. No biggie...I brought along a suture removal kit from work and some superglue just in case. Removed said stitches on the appropriate morning while everyone was milling around eating breakfast...and looked up to see that I had a captivated audience. I found it hilarious that everyone was so impressed.A few nites ago one of the older kids got a nosebleed that didn't want to stop. (During our weekly family dinner @ the in-laws, with about a dozen people there.) I wrapped my pinky up in a kleenex and shoved it up his nose to get pressure to the right spot, other more conventional attempts having failed. Kidlet asked me if we'd have to go to the ED if it didn't stop, I told him "Nah, I'll just stick a tampon up there for a while and see what happens if this doesn't work." Again, look up to see stares varying from amused (the women present) to horrified (the guys). And it just got worse when I attempted to explain what "rhino rockets" are as an explanation. Luckily the finger up the nose worked, but we had a handful of tampons that were offered from varios purses in case they were needed.Sometimes I think about stuff like that, that a group of nurses wouldn't even bat an eyelash at, and have to just giggle.
