John’s Lesson

I know I have said this several times, but I really mean it: I would not have made it this far in nursing school if it weren’t for my wonderful classmates. They always make me laugh, and we learn a lot from each other. Unfortunately for John, this was his week to be the teacher.
John’s patient had an ostomy bag, and John was instructed to "burp the bag" which means to let the gas out of the bag. John had never worked with an ostomy bag before, so he got down close to it and opened the bag very carefully. Still leaning down looking at the bag, John squeezed it, pushing all of the gas right into his face. Lesson for the day: point ostomy bag AWAY from face before squeezing.

  2. my Grandpa had a colonostomy.  At first I thought I was too weak stomached to have much to do with it.  However, five years later as he was dying I was right in there changing it and cleaning him up.  I think I could only do it because I loved him.
     
    But all you nurses … Wow!  The love you must have for humanity and strong stomachs.  It\’s a special breed and you all have my deepest admiration.
