We all know that patients say some crazy things… but what happens when those crazy things are directed at YOU?! Once a nickname takes hold at work, it can be hard to shake off! Check out their hilarious answers (and yes, quite a few nicknames were created by those patients!).


“Phone whore!” We had a very confused patient and she insisted I stole her cell phone. When we called it, it was in her purse in her closet.

“Popsicle” Still don’t understand that one! This patient called me that for over a year!
–Yolanda Hodges-Jefferson

Working inpatient psych, I had someone who called me “Feets” (because she said I was looking at her  “Feets”) and then proceeded to chase me at a full-fledged run.

“Master Sergeant.”
