Quote of the night

When I (mostly jokingly) told my co-workers that I couldn't see well enough to put in any Foley catheters tonight: "Did you forget where you work? You don't need to see it- you just follow the smell!"

Yeah. Just take a regular foley, not one already attached to a collection bag. Stick the connector end in one nostril.

Follow the scent of hoo hoo until you feel as if your sinuses are congested. Keep going. When you get that feeling like you've just snorked water up your nose in the pool and the urine smell gets really intense, stop right there. You're in the bladder. ;)

Guess you wouldn't really want to be able to test the one sense gets stronger than the other when you lose it theory...can you imagine having hypersensitive olfactory capability in an ER?

IF you had to be stuck with it, I guess you could go on the road like one of those wine snobs or perfume freaks and identify the ER by its unique odor….”This place has got a fine nose that is dominated more by stale alcohol and lacquer thinner than most ER’s; surprisingly the fecal content is more reminiscent of the 2005 strain of Norwalk than of the typical Melina!
