I thought I would start this out with some stories I heard doing dialysis many years ago......
You know you are a dialysis nurse if you have ever heard a patient tell you
"I didn't drink anything I must have soaked up the water when I had my bath"
"There is something wrong with my artillery line"
"Does a whole watermelon count as only one piece of fruit a day?"
"Well, I didn't drink a lot of water! I only had my pot of coffee and tea, that doesn't count does it?"
10 kg over!
Recently had a pt complete scheduled tx and call back the same day to be hemo'd b/c sob. We worked him back in hemo'd for 30 min and his family brought him a 36oz mug overflowing with crushed ice! We were all flaberghasted! Took it away from him and he had the GALL to get mad at us!
My favorite of all time - " I didn't drink a thing! I must have soaked it up because of the humidity!" and believe it or not I've heard that one at least 10 times! :chuckle
