"Doctors' embarrassing moments"

A hoot! For example...

"I was caring for a woman from Kentucky and asked, 'So, how's your breakfast this morning?' 'It's very good, except for the Kentucky Jelly... I can't seem to get used to the taste,' the patient replied. I then asked to see the jelly and the woman produced a foil packet labeled 'KY Jelly.'"

Oops!! And others of Doctors' embarrassing moments...

Once I had a patient who was indeed a very well endowed farm boy of about 19 years of age. He was truly a country boy from the hills of North Ga. He didn't even know how to read. He had a cough ,so I told him to take off his shirt put the gown and sit on the table. He stood up and and began to take his shirt off and I left the room. When I returned, I found him, naked as a jay bird, sitting the table, on top of the gown. I FROZE. I said " OH Noooo you don't have to get undressed." He said "OH I thought you said take off my clothes and sit on the gown on the table." .... Did I mention he was Well Endowed!

Another time... I had a young paraplegic patient in a wheel- chair. She had pneumonia and needed a chest xray. She was in a very compact wheelchair the likes of which I had never seen before. I asked her about it and she said' her boyfriend had made it for her.' So.... As we talked, we rolled into the lead lined xray room and shut the heavy door.
As I helped her change, we continued to talk. She was a very upbeat a positive person. Next, I rolled her over to the machine and started to move her into position in front of the machine. Suddenly, the big wheel of the chair came off and rolled across the room. There I was in a lead-lined room holding up a wheelchair with a paraplegic(slightly heavy)
young woman in it. I tried calling out but no one could hear me. Then I tried holding the wheelchair up with one knee and tried to reach the door handle with the other hand.(that sure didn't work).After several different attempts, the patient started to laugh then I started to laugh and finally we were laughing so hard. I gently sat myself and the patient and her 3 wheeled chair down on the floor where we just sat and laughed for several more minutes while we figured out how I could leave her in the broken chair could go get help.

It was the funniest start to a days work, that I ever had.


P.S. I won't get into the story of the guy, (who worked at perimiter mall during the holidays) He came for his stress test, dressed in a full Santa suit. had a cardiac arrest and died in the office. Very disturbing.... to do CPR on Santa.
