Nurses know there are things said in the hospital every day that folks working in other professions just can’t believe. We’ve highlighted a few of these here and even more here, but of course we wanted our readers to weigh in, as well!

So we went to our Funny Nurses Facebook page and asked you what YOU say every day. As you’d imagine, we got some fantastic answers. We’ve highlighted 10 below, but head over to Facebook to read even more (and add your own)!

    When taking a patient’s FBS I usually ask them to put their best finger forward. Usually it’s the naughty finger and we both have a good chuckle!
