When Nurses Get Sick

Sick Nurse – Guys, I think I’m going to have to throw in the towel and go home. I just threw up again and I’m beginning to spike a fever.

Charge nurse – Sure thing hon. I’ll pull one of the float nurses to cover your area. Feel better soon.

Patient’s family member at nursing station – What kind of nonsense is this? We get sick, we come to the hospital. You get sick, you go home!

Sick Nurse – I prefer bowing to the porcelain gods in my own bathroom.

"bowing to the porcelain gods"

We used to call it "calling O'Roark" I believe that is old Navy expression.

Nonsense? As if we really want to lay side by side with our patients. We know the shiz that goes down in hospitals!

Hahaha what ijits. When nurses get sick, why would we want to come to the hospital? Besides, nurses always get all suspicious when they know their patient is a nurse themselves.

Isn't great when you get to see patients whining about how sick they are when you are the one holding down the vomit, spiking a fever, and rounding with an IV to keep yourself hydrated?

Sorry you are sick. Feel better soon.
