Here are the top 50 craziest stories about nurses and their patients:

  1. “Dementia pt convinced I was pregnant and she was MY nurse. I was just fat but rolled with it. It kept her happy to do my ‘exams’ with my stethoscope and on my ‘baby’ belly, and I let her take my BP with my cuff. She was a L&D nurse in her day.”

  5. “One patient on the psych ward unplugged the other pt’s CPAP; he thought it was a ventilator and he was trying to kill him.”
  6. “A cute one to share: Confused patient climbed out of bed. Heard the bed alarm and ran into the room to see the patient fussing with the sheets saying, ‘This bed just won’t go to sleep!’”
  7. “Postpartum patient that kept hiding her dishes from the hospital meals under her bedsheets, so she could take them home.”
  8. “Alzheimer’s pt. took apart an entire bathroom, toilet and sink, with a butter knife.”
  9. “Oxygen pt. told me she didn’t want the oxygen because she didn’t want to get addicted to it.”
