1.
So are you going on to become a doctor? Ah no, if I had wanted to be a doctor I would have gone to medical school from the get go.

2. Hey, I have this rash…is this serious? You're going to have to ask that question to a doctor or go to the ER. I'm not saying a word.

3. My light has been on for hours! Where have you BEEN?! Putting my patients in priority I've been working as hard as I can to get to you. I'm sorry.

4. How do you deal with the smells? Actually I don't, they nauseate me too but I just do what I have to do.

5. What’s with the long wait times around here? Why, is there somewhere you need to be?
6. Is this going to hurt? Not going to hurt me one bit but I'll let you know before hand if something is going to hurt.

7. Have you done this before? Always say yes.

8. Can I get my next pain medication now? When it is time you can have it, until then no you can't.

9. Hey, could I call you after I leave here? Ah, no.

10 What’s the craziest thing you’ve ever had happen to you here? I would have to say the time we had a pt lock themselves in the bathroom and call 911 to tell them we were holding him against his will and that he was actually a member of a royal family. The police showed up to talk to that patient.

A. No, I like treating people, not just diseases, and people need smart nurses too.

2. Hey, I have this rash…is this serious?
A. Boy howdy, looks fatal to me. Can I call the chaplain for ya?

3. My light has been on for hours! Where have you BEEN?!

A. St. Lucia, Guadalajara, Maine, and London.You?

4. How do you deal with the smells?
A. I try to bathe regularly, but stay away from those "feminine hygiene" products.

5. What’s with the long wait times around here?

A. I know, right? Yogi says, "Nobody goes there anymore, it's too crowded."

6. Is this going to hurt?
A. Ripping tape off always hurts some. Fast or slow? (They always say, "Slow," but they change it to fast pretty quickly.) Seriously, I always said, "This is going to hurt, but it will be ver quick, so, don't hold your breath and here we go."

7. Have you done this before? Always say yes.

8. Can I get my next pain medication now?
A. It's prescribed for every six hours. Can I show you some techniques that will make you more comfortable now?

9. Hey, could I call you after I leave here?
A. Never late for dinner, is all. Otherwise, not part of our professional relationship.

10 What’s the craziest thing you’ve ever had happen to you here?
A. You do not want to hear it. If I told you, I'd have to kill you.

What are your answers?

I have to take exception to Darkness' answer about mouth breathing having had a clogged nose for nearly the first eighteen years of my life. You learn to taste odors (which I still do on top of smelling them) and the nasty ones are the pits. Ptoo, ptoo, ptoo!

Seriously, I JUST answered some questions along these lines for a brand spanky-new member on TOL, (it was smartass, but I'm sorry, it was FUNNY) and it got deleted as---wait for it---"not helpful or positive". OF COURSE it wasn't helpful or positive, ROFLMAO...he/she wanted his/her homework done for him/her and the questions were STUPID and INSULTING!

Ok, I feel better now. I'll do these..

1. So are you going on to become a doctor?
I already did that, decided I didn't like performing brain surgery after all, and then went to nursing school to fulfill my DREAAAAMMM.....

2. Hey, I have this rash…is this serious?
Nah....it looks rather comical to me. Serious? Nope.

3. My light has been on for hours! Where have you BEEN?!
If I told you....you'd probably be called as a witness...so...not sayin'.

4. How do you deal with the smells?
Do you smell something? What smells?

5. What’s with the long wait times around here?
The people ahead of you complained about the wait times, so they underwent a public humiliation, which took more time than expected. So...you ok with the wait?

6. Is this going to hurt?
Only if I do it correctly.

7. Have you done this before?
If you count the time before I got my license, and was practicing it on my cat...yep, sure have!

8. Can I get my next pain medication now?
Technically, your "next" pain medication would be the one AFTER "this" pain medication, so....no. Do you want THIS pain medication, then?

9. Hey, could I call you after I leave here?
You can call me anything you like, but "After I Leave Here" is rather a cumbersome nickname, don't you think?

10 What’s the craziest thing you’ve ever had happen to you here?

I'll let you know after this shift is over and the dust settles.... OR
My lawyer won't let me speak about it.

1. [/b]So are you going on to become a doctor?

What you think I am stupid!

2. Hey, I have this rash…is this serious?

Oh my......is that what I think it is.....I'm sorry you only have a few months to live ;)

3. [b]My light has been on for hours! Where have you BEEN?!

I don't think we are in Kansas anymore!

4. How do you deal with the smells?

What smells.

5. [b]What’s with the long wait times around here?

Welcome to the twilight zone!

6. Is this going to hurt?

I won't feel a thing.

7. Have you done this before?

Your the sixth time tonight.

8. Can I get my next pain medication now?

Well if now is in about three hours, you sure can.

9. Hey, could I call you after I leave here?

Your not leaving...Bwahaha

10 What’s the craziest thing you’ve ever had happen to you here?

Had a pt call and say "my AICD went off" so I ask where are you. Pt states I am driving. He was driving down the interstate when it happened, said felt like a horse kicked him in the chest.

What are your answers?

Nope -- but I'm going to play one on TV.


2. Hey, I have this rash…is this serious?
WOW! I've never seen one like THAT before!

3. My light has been on for hours! Where have you BEEN?!



I've been in here three times in the last hour. You keep falling asleep with your finger on the button. Now do you WANT something, or did you just want to complain?

4. How do you deal with the smells?
Smells?

5. What’s with the long wait times around here?

You've been here 13 minutes. That guy who just passed out sitting next to you was here MUCH longer than that before we got to him. You want to go first? You gotta be turning blue or have red puddles underneath your chair.

6. Is this going to hurt?
Yes.

7. Have you done this before? Always say yes.
Oh yes. I've done it at least twice in the Skills Lab.

8. Can I get my next pain medication now?
Where is your pain? Describe the nature of your pain, the exact location and any exacerbating conditions. Can you rate your pain on a scale from 1-10 with 1 being almost no pain and 10 being kicked in the chest by a horse into the campfire and catching on fire?

9. Hey, could I call you after I leave here?
Please don't. My husband shot the last fella that followed me home, and all the legal nonsense was pretty tedious.

10 What’s the craziest thing you’ve ever had happen to you here?
Well, there was the time the junkie climbed in the window and locked us all in the med room after he stole all the narcotics. That was a good time.
No, maybe it was the time I accidentally dislocated Dr. Brown's shoulder. No, wait! I know! It was the time I got stuck in the elevator for two hours with 1000 mg. of morphine and a bunch of methadone.
It could have been when we electrocuted the mouse. Or maybe when the bat got into the CCU . . . .

I dunno. What's yours?


What are your answers?
