I am collecting all kinds of funny quotes of what nurses are saying and doing.
Smart humour is one that doesn’t offend but raises awareness.
I once had a patient transferred to theatre with a long list of allergies. What
got us laughing was that the documented reaction was written down by the
admitting nurse as “analfactic.”
Be nice to me; I dispence the Happy Pills !!
You may occasionally see us laughing, or even take note of some jest.

There are times when the tension is highest.
There are times when our systems are stressed.
We’ve discovered humor as a factor in keeping our sanity blessed.
So, if you’re a patient in waiting, or a relative, or a friend of one seeing,
Don’t hold our smiling against us; it’s the way we keep from screaming.

In the centre of a very busy city a man asks a nurse: “Can you tell me the fastest way to the hospital?” “Yes”, says the nurse, “close your eyes and cross this street….”

The new nurse asked another nurse, “Why is he doing that?”
The other nurse replied, “Oh, he just likes to call the shots around here.”
Know you know how Hurricane Irma was made
So, this is what basically is a life of a Nurse. Boring in an Amusing way – Annoying in an Interesting way – Stressful in a comical Way!
A colleague of mine was taking a gentleman a blood pressure after he had fainted, he came too and asked if he would be able to play the piano, my colleague told the man that he would.
He replied with a wink. “That’s great. Because I couldn’t when l came in.”
My friend was so embarrassed, but I just said ‘He gotcha!!’.
