OMG.....you seriously won't believe this!
I was on the orthopedics floor today (float nurse). I was free nurse, so I did everyone's fingersticks, dressings, medicated the pained, etc. You name it I might have done it. I also had to take a couple pts for AM cares....no big deal...just get a couple of people up.
While the nurses were giving report at 7am I decided to make sure everything was okay with the floor...beeping IV's and such and answering lights! I stumbled into room A, single occupied, with this HUNK of a man lying in bed looking back at me with this charming smile on his face, asking for his pain meds.
So, I was getting report from one of the nurses...she reports to me in detail I guess because I'm an LPN and not a CNA...Mr. Y in room A is a 20 yo male who was admitted with dx of Foreign Object Lodged in Rt Index Finger, apparently he has a nasty splinter. :roll: I almost died laughing!
She couldn't for the life of her figure out why I was laughing. I had to tell her about the commercial b/c she had never seen it.
Later in the shift, approx. 6pm this charming young man came to the nurses station asking if someone could fix this beeping IV. Had to hold in the laughter when a couple of young nurses decided to swoon over him when all he needed was a good saline flush. :chuckle
