I have plenty of things to post with the same title because funny/weird/unusual things happen to me even when I try to avoid it. I guess it happens to everyone but I'm one of those people who attracts these kind of things more than the usual.
Even with the hard work nurses and nurses' assistants have to deal with, there are moments when we want to laugh like we are crazy but we have to be really professional. I think my poker face is getting improved.
Two years ago I was doing my internship as a nursing student on a Pediatric Ward. Nurses in Pediatric usually think the most difficult thing is not dealing with the children but with the parents, since they can be very critical. I think it's normal you worry about your kid. That's not the point of this post. I just want to write down a funny situation of that internship. I don't know if you will find it as funny as I do but I still want to laugh when I remember it. If you are a nurse or a nurse assistant you will get it ;)
Mum (acting all crazy and shouting at me): Hey, nurse, I wanted to ask you to turn off the air conditioner. I went for a coffee and when I came back my son was freezing.
Me: Oh, we're sorry. It's summer and it's hot but if you prefer we turn off the air conditioner on this bedroom.
I looked at the kid in his bed, with no covers, only wearing the pajama and a question popped out inside my head.
Me: Did he have his blanket covering him?
Mum: No. I left him without the blanket or the bed sheets because I didn't want him to be too hot.
Good, mum... Good.
