Pranks at work

  1. My partner on night shift is leaving our hospital for a higher paying/better benefits job. I am wanting input on a great practical joke to play on her before she leaves.
    We work ob, and a good one was to give report to day shift on our 36yo/G12/preeclampsia SS/FHT's nonreassuring/unable to get dr to come in/uncertain edc/and no English! We had another nurse hold the us on her chest so the monitor was flashing "70's", took a b/p on a leg with a small cuff so it was flashing some high b/p, had the room darkened (because the light bothered her), had her laying on her side with a cap on and the blanket pulled up- it was hilarious to watch our only bilingual nurse go over to her and ask "maria" how she was with great concern only to find it was another nurse we work with!
    Anyway, any good ones would be appreciated!!

    I just do silly little things to tease the ward clerk. I glue things to her computer monitor, paste her face on funny pictures and leave surprizes hidden in her drawers. She's fun to mess with. I compensate by buying her chocolate.

    Steal some hosp. letterhead and mail her a notice that in Jan. all employees will be getting a 10% bonus of their annual salary. Pass a few copies out to your fellow employees who are all in on the joke.
    When she rescinds her resignation then share a good laugh.

    Hey adrienurse- we think alike-we both have done the picture thing, the best was when my face was plastered where the local beauty queen's belonged. And of course it was faxed all over the hospital that night!

    Russell that would reeeeeaaallly get her- thanks for the idea!

    I hope she has a strong stomach...
    Melt a Reese's Peanutbutter Cup stir it up and then put it in a diaper. Have a nurse or CNA come up to you and your victim and ask to look at it and see what you think. Act a little puzzled, then stick your finger in it, take a taste and proclaim it tastes normal to you.

    Another unit had a fellow who had resigned. His co-workers left him a good-bye gift. They asked campus police to inspect bags at his usual exit. Imagine the look on his face when the cop pulled out a box of 10mg. morphine!. (empty, of course, and naturally campus police knew about the joke beforehand.)

    HOWEVER WOULD YOU HAVE KNOWN SHANDY???
    I wrote a memo saying we would get bonuses, made it real wordy and she (and others) fell for it. On her last night I had like 5 pics of her in various areas of the dept...her face on a Victoria's secret model, another on an old man in a nursing home, and others....
