A Good One



Found this little anecdote on the net.  It was posted by a doctor.

A postoperative patient became angry during morning rounds.

 The doctor and the nurse had entered his room to review his progress.

The  very young  petite woman kept responding to the questions that the patient was directing at the big, tall,  muscular man in scrubs.

He wanted answers from the doctor dammit, not some “dumb slut nurse” as he phrased it.

The ITU Nurse–a former Big Ten offensive lineman  (American football player) politely introduced the patient to the little woman and informed angry patient that she was the  brilliant cardiothoracic surgeon who had saved his life the night before.

The cardiothoracic surgeon, in turn,  pointed to the big guy and introduced the patient to the “dumb nurse whose brains and education will be keeping you alive for the next 12 hours while I am away seeing my other patients.”

And check this out.  It's a video about the poster above.  The RCN should be doing this kind of stuff.

Dino-nurse said...

Love it! Thats my dream man on the far left by the way. Or the fireman- in fact lets just have them all wrapped up and sent to my unit :0)
Despite all the ads saying that being a male nurse is ok, a quick poll at my son's school brings up all the old views (tad worrying). In my experience, very few male nurses are gay- most of the ones I work with are married. When I trained we had 3 in our set of 30- the recent (much larger)cohort on the unit said that the ratio was still about the same. Agree that the RCN needs a makeover however. They are firmly stuck in the land of Genie (remember that show?) rather than the land of Buffy or Supernatural (how many episodes have they gone undercover as male nurses...plenty and yum!) Yes, I am a sad, sad scifi loving old woman/nerd.

Dino nurse...........became Dino matron. She banned Capgrass from opening and consuming cans of coke right in front of thirsty tracheostomy patients who were "strictly nill by mouth" becasue they gagged a bit on the speach therapist pureed peaches.
Militant Medical nurse has decided to stick a large white needle into an accupuncture point in her ear as she felt she was feeling a bit stressed. She had a patient admitted who had low calcium. the doctors prescribed the calcium, the book said patient should be monitored. There was no cardiac monitoring available. the last cardiac monitor had gone to someone on a phenytoin infusion who also needed "monitored". phenytoin patient was fitting, but they could not use cotsides because they had not filled in the cotsides risk assement form as they had run out. Student nurse that Militant medical nurse likes is busy working hard on her ward: not as a student, but as a glorified Nursing Auxillary. Militant feel bad that she has spilled cefotaxime on his formative assessment and it now has the fragrence of cat urine. Jobbing Doctor has found some pages in the printer. he suspects they are the STD results from the ward clerk, and is a quandry about whether to shred or not to shred and hand them over. militant has just observed that Capgrass has now forgotten to put a bed pan in the comode and thus a large turd is showing under the carpet just as Dino does her inspection.

capgrass said...

i mean under the curtain, not the carpet, only private wards have carpets.

Nurse Anne said...

I love sci fi too dino-nurse. It's not sad at all. Geek is the new cool imho.

And to Deefect.from.nhs.blog,

You must work on my unit. No cot sides, no cot sides risk assessment, having to take monitors off of one patient to see another.

My Thoughts My Country said...

This is a good one. I love stories like this.

I hope it's ok if i use this in one of my blogs. I will link it to your blog.

Nurse Anne, I have a relative who is a nurse and she works her tail off. I have shown her your blog and she identifies with everything in your blog.

I would really love it if your blog, and others like this, were out in the mainstream media for everyone to see what is really going on in the NHS, but i doubt it will ever happen.

I really hope that changes and people will see how hard you and your fellow nurses and doctors work.

Dino-nurse said...

Ha Ha!
I would then make capgrass go on a "bedpan awareness course" in his own time :0)
Really- this sums up exactly why I would never do the job- I have enough paperwork to deal with already and the thoughts of even less patient contact and more penpushing are the final nail in the coffin.

Usually, a brand new website takes about six months to one year to appear in the SERPs of Google,
assuming the service provider is worth their salt. The objective is
to arrange your passions as carefully as possible with your
online promotion company. You can then take a hard look at the companies that come up
for that particular keyword. SEO (search engine optimization) and keyword density are terms that
scare many a writer who want to write for the internet.
A dedicated SEO expert will devote all the attention and effort in enhancing the visibility of your website or
business in the online world. It would cut the marketing project to fit
it into your budget. Since keyword analysis is needed for both
SEO (search engine optimization) and SEM, we often confuse using these terms.
Lastly, make sure that you have a reliable work-at-home office.

The title is supposed to explain the article, and the title is what
your readers see when they search for content.
This helps auto dealership websites rank higher in the search engines
results and get more traffic to the website. Thus, if your charges are overly cheap, this might cause doubts and worries from their mines
regarding the quality of the service they get. Don't Forget to Replace the Default Favicon with Your Logo. Let us assume that at this point you have 6 keywords. You can find several internet marketing companies across the world. And, as more and more companies move larger portions of their advertising budgets to internet marketing, there is an even greater demand for their skills. Originally posted at: digitalmoz. With most visitors noting the first 3-5 web links of the first page, further sustained SEO efforts bring the company web link to that web positioning high up as much as possible. A person can find all sorts of products available at various prices on the internet. And make the work flow smoothly, using good grammar at all times. com is one of the premier portals on the World Wide Web which has been formulated with the intention of providing SEO Hosting options for webmasters around the world who seek a way to ensure that their websites reach the top ranks of all major search engines.
