  • DOCTORS...and the things they admit to...

    A friend sent me this - it's in the public domain, so the names are all OK on here. Submitted by various doctors, when asked about funny things that have happened to them.

    1. A man dashes into the our A&E dept. and yells . . . 'My wife's going to have her baby in the taxi'.

    I grabbed my stuff, rushed out to the taxi, lifted the lady's dress and began to take off her underwear. Suddenly after protests from the lady I noticed that there were several taxis.............. and I was in the wrong one.

    Submitted by Dr. Mark MacDonald , St. Andrews Hosp. Glasgow

    2. At the beginning of my shift, I placed a stethoscope on an elderly and slightly deaf female patient's anterior chest wall. 'Big breaths,' I instructed.

    'Yes, they used to be,'. . . replied the patient.

    3. One day I had to be the bearer of bad news when I told a wife that her husband had died of a massive myocardial infarct. Not more than five minutes later, I heard her on her mobile phone reporting to the rest of the family that he had died of a 'massive internal fart.'

    Submitted by Dr. Susan Steinberg Royal London Hosp.

    4. During a patient's two week follow-up appointment, he told me that he was having trouble with one of his medications.

    'Which one?'. . .. I asked.

    'The patch; the Nurse told me to put on a new one every six hours and now I'm running out of places to put it!'

    I had him quickly undress and discovered what I hoped I wouldn't see. Yes, the man had over fifty patches on his body! Now, the instructions include removal of the old patch before applying a new one.

    Submitted by Dr. Rebecca St. Clair, Norfolk General

    5. While acquainting myself with a new elderly patient, I asked 'How long is it since you've been bed-ridden?'

    After a look of complete confusion she answered . . .'Why, not for about twenty years - when my husband was still alive.'

    Submitted by Dr. Steven Swanson- Maidenhead Royal Kent

    6. I was performing rounds at the hospital one morning and while checking up on a man I asked. 'So how was your breakfast this morning?'

    'It's very good except for the Kentucky Jelly. I can't seem to get used to the taste.'. . . Bob replied.

    I then asked to see the jelly and Bob produced a foil packet labeled 'KY Jelly.'

    Submitted by Dr. Leonard J. Brandon . Bristol Infirmary.

    And my all-time favourite.......

    7. A nurse was on duty in the A&E when a young woman with purple hair styled into a punk rocker Mohawk, sporting a variety of tattoos, and wearing strange clothing, entered. It was quickly determined that the patient had acute appendicitis, so she was scheduled for an immediate operation. When she was completely disrobed on the operating table, the staff noticed that her pubic hair had been dyed green, and above it there was a tattoo that read 'KEEP OFF THE GRASS.'

    Once the surgery was completed, the surgeon wrote a short note on the patient's dressing, which read

    Submitted by Staff Nurse Elaine Fogerty , King George Hosp Ilford (Dr. wouldn't submit his name)

    If it 'ain't broken........ Don't try to mend it !
