Imagine you are in a room with a patient who had a recent colostomy. they are laying in bed and have a mysterious brown substance all over their elbow and sheets. Now how would you find out what that was? Touching it and licking your finger is Not the way I would go. Just saying. Sunday, February 19, 2012 9:19 PM

While working on the urology floor, I had one patient with a kidney stone ask me for a straw. I brought one into his room and he asked me to insert into his 'shaft' to help the stone fall out. Needless to say, I removed all straws from his water pitchers STAT. Thursday, April 01, 2010 3:02 PM
