  62. Christy Aldaco

    “Hey Gladys, think anyone knows?” The nurses are testing out their new under-the-skirt-foley-catheters, since we all know nurses never have time to pee!

  63. Maria

    Let’s see…. Florence made me promise to “abstain from whatever is deleterious and mischievous”…..hhhmmmm….naaaahhhh!

  68. Rebecca

    Those pranksters from the ER came and bound our hands behind our backs with our apron strings. Too bad trauma shears haven’t been invented yet!

  74. Yes, Sir, we’re ready and waiting to scrub you down. Yes, Sir, every inch of you.

  75. Robyn Coverly Dey

    The apron matched properly before I washed it, really…please don’t dismiss me for not following dress code!!

  76. kelley calloway

    epidural? HaHa, no need for an epidural in here!!!

  77. Cynthia DeLeon

    Congratulations. You have been selected for our nursing school’s free outpatient tonsillectomy.

  78. “this next surgery is on the constable that gave us that speeding ticket when our buggy ran out of control. I say we just ran out of morphine….”

  79. Prudence Morales

    Ok, delivery boy! Wash your hands….now, put on some gloves and a mask…move slowly towards the table……now slowly place the package down on the table….now you may leave by walking ever so slowly backwards…..that’s it…….you are not to turn your back to us until you are completely out of the room….that’s it…you got it……..OK,LADIES IT’S LUNCHTIME!!!

  82. Lindsay S.

    Dr. Thomas just entered the room and noticed that this is the quietest the nurses have ever been. If only he could have read their thoughts!
    Nurse #1 thinking: Oh my word… someone farted! I just hope the doctor doesn’t think it was me!!!
    Nurse #2 thinking: What is that awful smell?!? I thought we scrubbed this place down?!?
    Nurse #3 thinking: Relief! I’ve been holding that for so long! It doesn’t seem like anyone noticed, it must not smell!

  83. Erin D.

    Flo would not be happy about this,ladies……
