These are supposedly true stories I have found on the internet and thought they might give your day a needed smile or two…
Hospital regulations require a wheelchair for patients being discharged. However, while working as a student nurse, I found an elderly gentleman already dressed and sitting on the bed with a suitcase at his feet-who insisted he didn’t need my help to leave the hospital. After a chat about rules being rules, he reluctantly let me wheel him to the elevator. On the way down, I asked if his wife was meeting him. “I don’t know,” he said. “She’s still upstairs in the bathroom changing out of her hospital gown.” –Patsy R. Dancey
One crazy day in our pediatric clinic saw me hand a young patient a urine sample container and tell him to fill it up in the bathroom. A few minutes later, he returned to my nurse’s station with an empty cup. “I didn’t need this after all,” he said. “There was a toilet in there.” –Linda Feikle
Watching a movie recently, I couldn’t hear the dialogue over the chatter of the two women in front of me. Unable to bear it any longer, I tapped one of them on the shoulder. “Excuse me,” I said. “I can’t hear.” “I should hope not,” she answered. “This is a private conversation.” –David Carver
My husband decided to install a light switch in our master bedroom. Cutting into the wall, he discovered a stash of bottles and boxes. “Honey!” he called excitedly. “Come see what I found!” I ran in and quickly realized that his next task would be to fix the hole he had made in the back of our medicine cabinet. –Nola Pirar
