Two and I am now talking some many, many years ago, before nursing training went to university - THAT long ago.
One was a nurse who went told to put the patient, who was on strict rest in bed, on a commode went and well....... Let us just say they discovered her mistake because the patients face was visible above the curtains - yes she had put the patient on the commode on the bed.
The other was notorious and only survived the length of time she did because she was the deputy matron's niece. (told you it was a long time ago) She was credited with gathering up all the dentures from all the patients in the ward on to one tray to Wash them,. Took a dentist 6 months to straighten out the mess.
Her most notorious exploit was when told to give a patient 2 suppositories and an ear syringe and she came back and told the RN that the suppositories "kept falling out"
Puzzled the RN went to see what was wrong and here was the poor patient sitting upright in bed with a suppository stuck in each ear!!!!!
