Two quotes overheard recently in the department.
Quote #1: Nurse talking on the phone said “Don’t worry, sometimes anal can be a good thing.”
Quote #2: Female tech in room with male patient said “You just put it in the hole and I’ll do the rest. Don’t worry, I’ll hold it there.”
Get your minds out of the gutter.
The nurse was talking to another nurse who called to the emergency department because she couldn’t remember whether the patient received one or two doses of antibiotics before being sent to the floor. The floor nurse was apologizing because she was being so “anal compulsive.”
The tech was holding a urinal for an elderly stroke patient.
Don’t feel bad. Most of the people in the ED were laughing, too.
