15 Things Only Nurses Will Find Funny

  1. Listening to patients pronounce the “oh-so-complicated” medical terms

Patients can be funny as hell when trying to sound all aware of their condition when they use fancy medical terms. Nurses often crack up on the various silly distortions that patients usually make when they are trying to use a certain medical term. It could be as silly as an old man expressing his fear of “Old Timer’s Disease” taking his life when in reality he meant ‘Alzheimer’s disease’. Even more, imagine a patient pronouncing ‘Phenobarbital’- a medicine name as “peanut butter balls”. Trust me these follies throughout the day can be an effective stress buster for the nurses.
