A nurse walked in the patient’s room and saw the patient with her butt in the garbarge barrel and said what the heck are you doing? The patient replied, “I couldn’t make it to the toilet” the toilet bowl was next to the garbarge barrel.
Worked at a facility about 20 yrs ago that had a male pt that was as mean as a junk yard dog. He was very abusive to the females pt’s. Facility was fed up with what to do with him. Well, 2 other gentleman pt’s got fed up. They had, had enough. They were WC bound but had great UE strength. During the night shift somehow they had crawled out of their beds over the rails, got into their WC’s, grabbed a trash sack out of the can, creeeeeaped across the hall to the junk yard dogs room. and attempted to KILL him by putting the bag over his head to suffocate him. Though an employee walked in and stopped them. The man died later on but completely unrelated to that incident. But he never messed with any more woman after that…:) I got to talk to 1 of the “Vigilantes” later and he said “What were they going to do to us? Throw us in jail? Hell we’re already in jail.”
Had some visitors on the night shift 1 slow night. About 1/2 a doz police officers… 1 of our widowed Dementia pt’s had a personal phone in her room had made a 911 call. According to the police the call went something like this “This is ??? ???…They’ve killed my husband his bodies on the floor hurry hurry please!!!” They went to her room and there she sat all cute/sweet & NORMAL acting watching TV. And denied making the call… Thanks to her family she didn’t have that phone much longer. lololol
I had a 95 year old slightly confused patient recently who asked me to be re-positioned in the bed. I called another nurse in to help me who happened to be a young male nurse. After pulling the patient up in the bed the male nurse bent down to pick up the patient’s call light off the floor. The little elderly patient reached over and pinched him on the butt! He jumped about three feet in the air and let out a little scream like a girl and I about fell on the floor laughing. He was so red with embarrassment! The patient looked at him with a very serious face and said, “well how about it big boy? You and me?” It was priceless! LMAO
