The patient receives a letter from the hospital describing what will happen when she arrives. She will be assigned her own personal nurse-advocate. One the nurse’s duties will be to mark the location of the surgery on her body. The other is to ensure that the doctors operate on the correct side or limb – i.e. the left foot, not the right one. Another duty is to ensure that at every step of the way, the patient’s ID is checked and re-checked, so they perform the correct procedure on the correct patient. ….now why does this sound so frightening? Do they have a history of making mistakes?
Jerry was in the hospital recovering from surgery when a nurse asks him how he is feeling. “I’m OK but I didn’t like the four-letter-word the doctor used in surgery,” he answered. “What did he say,” asked the nurse. “OOPS!”
Before going in for surgery I thought it would be funny if I posted a note on myself telling the surgeon to be careful. After the surgery I found another note on myself. “Anyone know where my cell phone is ????????”
A man was just coming out of anesthesia after a series of tests in the hospital. His wife was sitting at his bedside. His eyes fluttered open, and he murmured, “You’re beautiful.” Flattered, the wife continued her vigil while he drifted back to sleep. Later, her husband woke up and said, “You’re cute.” Startled, she asked him, “What happened to ‘beautiful?'” He replied, “The drugs are wearing off.”
