so true---I don't drink coffee, but made me laugh anyways! It's medical lingo for: Caffeine---By mouth (PO), every 4 hours as necessary (PRN)! This would have been funnier back in nursing school ages ago!
When I woke up from my heart surgery I tried pulling out the tubes and wires. They had to restrain me with their straps. I escaped and then they were called back and had to restrain me again. Found out I was having a bad reaction to the morphine.
Today, I wasn’t successful in starting an IV on my L&D patient, and my instructor handed my a** to me. The nurse happened to be there in the room while it happened. She came to me when afterwards, and taught me how she practiced IV’s as a nursing.
