The testosterone level on my ward is the complete opposite. There's only me and a part time support worker who are male, and he'll be leaving once he's finished his nurse training.

"I always find it amazing that patients are willing to show any part of their body to a man they think is a doctor but then don't want a man who is a nurse to wash them"

I found in my own experience as a pt I didn't really care. or maybe that was the drugs

seriously tho, he was the only other nurse available at the time and as I was in traction I certainly needed the help

Patient safety is, as in other units, #1 on our list in the OR.

After a male patient moved over to the operating room table, I covered him with warm blankets and informed him that I would be placing a leather safety strap over his thighs.

He smiled and asked, "Kinda like S&M, right?"

To everyone's amusement, I turned bright red and replied, "Uh, not exactly..."

What else could I say? Sorry, there's no Naught Nurse here!

Amazing what some people are prepared to say infront of a bunch of strangers. Who said you don't need to think on your feet as a nurse!!

I think I would have said, "In your dreams, dude!" But then, that's just me!

Some of these things are absolutely hilarious! I haven't had a lot of funny things said to me, but one of my classmates told me her story:

"One of my nurse's patient's operation was scheduled for the next day instead of the original day. She went in to tell her patient and the patient was like "Oh, that's good because I already ate breakfast!"

One of my fellow nurses was complaining to the attending that every time the residents scheduled a procedure, she was always the last to know.

"Tell someone else," the attending replied. "Then that person will be the last to know."

Thanks, Jess. I will try to think of some more but my memory is not what it used to be.
