Egg on My Face
There was this one nurse who had a special assignment. Her mission was to take care of a young man who had three gunshot wounds. Even though his life was not in danger, he still had severe wounds. One day, she went to his single room to ask him if he had completed his menu for the following day. But when she entered his room, she saw something that completely surprised her.
What she saw was her patient standing gingerly beside his bed, and not only that, but he was also using the urinal as well. In order to protect him from any embarrassment that he might be feeling, she said some kind of an Australian joke. It is safe to say that what she saw made her feel uncomfortable as well.
One nurse was taking care of a patient who she thought was about to go into labor. One time while she was doing the pain assessment, she asked her patient if her pain is constant or intermittent. Her patient didn’t really understand her question, so she asked her to explain what she meant.
The nurse then asked her if her pain is constant or it comes and goes. What her patient said next was pretty funny – she said that her pain constantly comes and goes!
One evening, while the nurse was administering medication to her patient, they started talking to one another. The nurse told her that she has her medication ready, and that she is going to give her some Pepcid for her stomach, but that she is going to put it in her IV. The patient looked a little bit perplexed, and she told her nurse that she has one question for her. She asked the nurse to explain why she is giving her Pepsi instead of Coke.
