At work Monday, I was passing out breakfast trays. One of my patients had prune juice on her tray. My preceptor was baffled and asked why did they send her prune juice with her tray? I looked on her menu and yep, it called for the devils juice.
I thought I was going to get ahead by doing her am care after breakfast, as she takes a little more time than my other patients. After breakfast, I got her am care almost done, removed her brief to do peri care and it happened. THE GRAND POOP EXPLOSION!!! Poop everywhere! The more I cleaned her, the more she pooped. AAAACCCCCKKKK!!!!! I finally sat her on the commode and told her to have at it and we will finish cleaning her up when she was done.
I know it wasn't her fault. Someone ordered that damn juice and they should have been the ones cleaning her up! It took me well over an hour to do her am care! Mind you, am care is only washing the face, back, arm pits and peri care. OVER AN HOUR! After the fact, I had to shove five gallons of vicks up my nose just to get rid of the poop smell! What is it with the smell staying in your nose? ICK ICK ICK!!!! I know she felt bad and I felt bad for her. I didn't say anything negative to her during that process as that would have been too unfair.
