My student was putting in a foley tonight and when he was ready, he asked the (completely neuro in-tact) patient to open her legs up a little more.
"I’m right here waiting for you, boy!" She replied with a snort.
Y’all should be proud of me because I didn’t break his sterile field with my laughter!
Patients are always trying to guess my age. They’re always shocked when I tell them, complimenting me on my “youthful appearance.” I casually look them in the eyes and tell them that my secret is human blood, and then I just walk out of the room like I’m completely serious.
My favorite thing about watching medical shows now is understanding them.
