Overheard at the Nurses Station

It's shift change:


Nurse 1: "Beware of when she coughs."

Nurse 2: "Why? She really sick?"

Nurse 1: "No. When she coughs, she farts. And sometimes more."

'And sometimes more' Would that be a shart?

Was taking history from a patient when he had a bad coughing fit. He ended up with explosive diarrhea that he tracked from the bed to the toilet. The stench was so bad, we could smell it down the hall. Poor guy was so mortified

Been there with a parent suffering from chemo side effects. As if the suffering weren't enough, it is so heartbreaking to observe the humiliation and loss of dignity. I can't muster even a chuckle at this kind of an anecdote.
