How would you like to deal with "Problem People"??

  1. Fantacy!

    Knowing what we know as nurses, what fantacy may you have in how you would deal with "problem people"? The "problem person" can be anyone: physician, spouse, friend, enemy, co-worker, government official. . . . . .



    P. S. . . This is meant to be funny. . . . (I would hope no one carry out any of these fantacies in real life. . . at least not to me. . . .)

    Have fun!

    What they do to themselves seems to be much worse than anything I could do to them...

    None, however The best revenge is living well, feeling centered and secure in one's beliefs and at all costs not letting that person know he/she was able to rattle your cage. Why give that power to any other person?
    Now if I chose to stoop to their level, I would probably wish to do all of the above.
    I notice that so far, a majority of the responses are orifice related.

    oznurse69-- Exlax is a brand name for a popular product that loosens up the bowels. And it reallllllyyyyyyy woorkkssss. Kaboom! if you know what I mean.

    On a vengeful note, there is a supposedly true story about two EMT's and a Cop who had to transfer a very very mean and nasty and hateful drunken patient. Who had to go to the bathroom after he had been restrained. And how they 'talked' about the great relief of going to the bathroom, and drank and drank water and stopped to urinate and left him suffering. I'm sure it's just an urban legend, but it is a fantasy I cling to when I'm caring for an especially nasty drunk.

    Exlax tastes like chocolate, so you can bake it in brownies and get someone back.......or maybe put it in their coffee or something evil like that..

    So far, "Slowly insert a 32FR foley cath without lubrication." is the most popular of this poll!



    P. S. You guys are sadistic!
