TWQ: Funny Hospital Stories

This week, TWQ (The Weekend Question) checks in to hospital to ask the following:

Do you know of any amusing things that have happened to you, a friend or a relative while in hospital, or perhaps visiting a doctor?

Here is my answer:

When my father visited the hospital for a check-up about three years ago for the heart bypass he was to have later, the nurse told him to remove all his clothes. This was in a large room with several booths for patients. As he waited, he heard the nurse say to a patient next door, "What do you think you've done!" The patient replied, "I heard you say to the man in the next cubible remove all your clothes, so I took mine off as well." The nurse told him, "But you're only here for a throat check-up!"

Now it's over to you..

That's a good story, Jean-Luc, and I am sure your readers will supply many more. I will be back to read about them later. Michele sent me.

When I was in the hospital at age 19 for a breast cyst removal, under influence of anesthesia, I cursed the nurses and told them to "get this G-D bra offa me!!" Of course I wasn't wearing one at the time, just bindings after the surgery. That's about as funny as it gets here....LOL

I'm scratching my head over this one, Jean-Luc. I'm sure I have stories but nothings coming to mind. I've worked in hospitals many times over the years so I should have something! I've never had to stay in one overnight fortunately so anything I'd relate would be work oriented. *knock on wood*

Not so good at hospital humout, although I do like Green Wing on the television, which seems to have a few laughs.

Here today via Michele's.

I brought my husband in to emerge one night, thinking someone had drugged him (he was irrationally and in a way I'd never seen in the 10 years I'd known him). I was very worried about him. When I walked in with him, the nurse just told us to go home and said he was drunk!
Not hilarious, but the best I could come up with.

Hope you're having a good weekend!

One time when I was little, my dad was in a hosptial room with a guy hooked up to all kinds of machines. My little brain thought it sounded like our aquarium. So I drew my dad a picture of fish under water to go with it.

no, most of my hospital visits don't involve humor, loved yours!

The only funny thing I can remember at the hospital is when I was very young, getting ready to have my tonsils removed...and was having fun with the backless gown and showing my mom my butt.
She said, "You're going to get caught when the doctor comes in..."

and when I looked over my shoulder I saw that he and three other doctors had just walked in.

Okay, not so funny. But embarrassing? Yeah. ;)

Hello, Michele sent me today, Captain!

Ciera said...

UHm.........the best I can think of right now is what my pastor's wife was just telling me...about how they went to visit one of the members before her surgery...only to find out that they went to the wrong hospital!!

Ciera said...

stopping by from Michele's....just because I can! :P

I remember a story told to me before about a patient's watcher who thought the male urinal was a water pitcher. And she really used it in going to the nurse's station to fetch water from the cold water fountain.

Nettie said...

When I was getting some tests and my friend was with me and we kept talking about Sidney and Rodney who were all over each other and trying to do it...only they were guinea pigs...we thought it'd be hilarious if the tech overheard us...

Hey Jean-Luc!

Well, I have two...

First, my sister, Margie, when she had a baby. While in so much pain during contractions, she kept saying, "Ra-ra-ra-uuuuuullllll." Later her husband asked her who Raul was and why he was so important.

The second is a bit gross...but I'll tell you anyway. When I had my first baby I ummm...ripped pretty badly...sorry, but true...he was 9.01 lbs anyway, I kept asking the doctor to take a cork out of my ummm....butt. No one knew what I was talking about. I really and truly thought they had but a cork up my butt. When it was all over I screamed, "Can you PLEASE take the cork out of my butt now?!!!" The doctor answered, "You don't have a butt anymore, we are sewing you a new one."

I know, yuck! But true! Something that gross and yet oddly funny cannot be made up.

Oh, Jean-Luc, I've Luv'd U since the very first day U put on that uniform and hit the air-waves!
:o

Jean-Luc Picard said...

You have some great stories there; keep 'em coming.

Starbender....er, thank you for your thoughts!

OldOldLady Of The Hills said...

Unfortunately I cannot think of one single amusing thing about Hospitals...Doctors? Well, possibly some doctors names...
An OBGYN named Dr. Lecher! True!

That's about it for me and The Medical Profession Humor, Captain! (lol)

Here from Michele today!

I love this story. I guess the guy thought the throat bone was connected to the...

Sorry, my bad.

My funny hospital story comes from when our eldest son was born. He had a very difficult delivery - 16 and a half hours before they did an emergency caesarian section (my poor wife!)

Long story short, some babies have pointy heads when they come out after an ordeal like this. It's because they've been pushing up against, essentially, a wall for so long.

So our beautiful baby boy was known - even by the nurses - as a conehead for the first few hours of his life. He got extra love and attention because of it.

His head naturally rounded out after a couple of days, and he is now a bright and gregarious 11-year-old. Whew!

Hi jean luc,
love the site, here from michele's.
The only thing I can think of was when I took my son to the walk in centre this weekend and the triage fella went to give him some liquid paracetamol. which as you know is a very tricky operation. He failed miserably... I've never seen anyone try to fill a medicine spoon by pooring it over the back of the spoon... and all over the floor...
he assured me it was getting close to the end of the shift. My four year old thought it was hilarious. So I guess it made him, better a bit.

I had to have a C-section with my twins because one was a footling breech. The delivery room was FULL of people - a team for each baby. Each baby was measured in all sorts of ways, and one nurse was recording for both. I heard various numbers being called out to this nurse (the twins were referred to as Baby A and Baby B at first).

The Recording Nurse then called back out "hey, you're giving me Baby A's measurements again!"

"No, I'm not"

"Yes, you are!"

"No, I'm not ..."

It turned out that my girls' measurements were unusually similar (even the APGAR scores). It took awhile for the nurses to stop arguing over numbers and catch on to this. They talked for days afterwards about it.

My friend who is around 125 lbs was scheduled for a gastrocoscopy procedure so he was made to change his street clothes to a surgical attire. While he was in the dressing room, he found it very difficult to put on the gown that was given to him so it took him more than 15 minutes before he came out. As soon as he stepped out of the dressing room, I was so shocked to see him walking like a penguin. The nurse mistakenly handed him the linen that they used in covering the oxygen tank. Hehehe!!!

"Do you know of any amusing things that have happened to you, a friend or a relative while in hospital, or perhaps visiting a doctor?"

Yes.

Next question.

Sry Jean-Luc, couldn't resist.

Not sure how funny this is but about 12 or so years ago I was in the hospital looped up on demerol. I started talking ( to noone in particular) about how I was upset with the choice of lawyer my friends had picked to defend their dog nippy who was being charged with the murder of 49 chickens. lol

I dont remember much, only what I have been told and I know the doctors and nurse got a huge kick out of it.

About a week before I said all this my friends dog had gotten into the barn and killed all the chickens. lol. oops

Thanks for stopping by my blog:)

Lori said...

I went to the DR with a friend...and we was waiting to be called back when a woman comes in and sits right beside my friend....This woman opens her purse and a big bug crawls out....Talking about people moving to the other side of the room quick!!!....It's been years ago now....we still laugh about it!!!

Have a great day!!!

If only you knew how my day was going. I was searching for one thing and I ended up here. Now you see how that might affect me!
