Weird hospital stories? Crazy nurse or doctor?

I was just watching tv & they were talking about weird/random things that happened in the hospital. Mine came to mind & so I had to share...

When I was in the hospital after having my youngest...I was in for 3 days so I had the same day & night nurses. Well, my night nurse was an older woman..the first night, when she came in to check me & said " well looks like you got your sexy underwear back on" - jason had brought me some boy shorts & they were black lace. Not trying to be sexy, obviously, 6hrs after giving birth but they were thick & honestly the most comfy at the time. I thought was weird, but let it go.

Next night, same nurse. back to check me & this time says " oh, youre a natural redhaed". I looked at jason & she left. I asked him if he heard that & he said yeah. It didnt hit me at first but I soon realized her comment was based on the color of my hair "down there".

Crazy right??? I told everyone this story & everyone agreed that this nurse was nuts!! Luckily, I left the next afternoon....

Anybody else have crazy nurses or doctors?

i had the bitch from the birth certificate office scream and yell at me the morning i was getting discharged to "hurry up and pick a name" and after i told her once that we were just deciding on a middle name....she went away and came back with a baby name book and threw it at me on my bed! i told her "you stupid fucking bitch-don't do that!" i threw the book back and demanded that she not come back into the room and then i had the nurse call security. some official lady came in to apologize.

I was in a car accident when I was 16.  I was watching TV at like 3 in the morning.  The night nurse came in and started talking to my mom.  She said something like the TVs are for the patients and you really should let you daughter sleep.  I turned to her told her that not only was my mom asleep, but that she had her good ear to the pillow and couldn't hear anything she was saying.  She then informed me that the TV was going off and I needed to go to sleep.  I had been sleeping most of the day.  She did her thing turned off the TV and left.  I turned it back on after I was sure she was gone.

Many moons ago while in labor, stirrups and all in walks my dad.  And I shoo him away (obviously).  The nurse recognizes him from H.S. and they have a grand conversation with me just 'hangin' out'

Lovely, huh

Going in at midnight to have my second child, I walk in holding my belly having a contraction right in front of the nurse and she asks, "So why are we tonight?"  Uuuummmm....I'm having my tonsils taken out! Lol

When I had my gallbladder taken out I had drain in because there was some fluid.  It was held in with two stiches.  Before I was discharged of course the drain had to come out.  So instead of cutting the stiches the mean male nurse I had just ripped the tube right out, ripping the stiches and everything with no warning.

LOL! this happened to me too sorta..same kid, same hospital as my post. I walked in & my contraction swere about 6min apart at this time & the triage nurse asked me same thing. When I said Im in labor(duh) she totally didnt belive me, said no way you are 9 months ( i was small but obviously preggo). Then tells another nurse, "hook her up to a monitor but its prob just gas. Shes only about 6 months along. " The other nurse hooks me up & is like "uhhh shes having a contraction now & her water just broke".
