Chapstick

I got called into my nursing supervisors office today…

So… there I am eating my chalky ass protein bar at the nurses station and my supervisor comes over and says, “I need to talk to you”. Fucking great right? So I go into her office sweaty as all fuck as she sits me down and says…”A patient is making complaints that you took her chapstick and refused to give it back”.

Fucking chapstick. I look at her, grinned, and said, “Uh yep”. I’m fucking telling you… the confusion on my bosses face was instant when I admitted to doing something so fucking odd. At this point, I reached into my pocket and give her the patient’s chapstick. She looks at it. She looks back at me. Then she says… “This is a Elmer’s glue stick”. And I’m like… “Yeah… You’re right”.

So then I explained to my boss that my dementia patient was literally using FUCKING GLUE on her mouth for God knows how fucking long because she thought it was chapstick. So hell yeah I took that shit away. I’m a great nurse. Therefore, I don’t let my confused patients put damn art supplies on their mouth. πŸ˜‚

I fucking love my job. 😁

  1. Working with patients with dementia is difficult at best. It is devastating for the families as well. I am sorry your supervisor didn’t trust you more I am sure that hurt your feelings. I applaud you for caring for these special human beings that need special love and tender care. Love πŸ’• Joni

    1. I think my supervisor was more like wtf is this complaint? We both laughed our asses off lol. Dementia patients are my most favorite patients to get on my shift. They are my homies. 😁 I would much rather have a confused elderly person (even if they punch me) than a detoxer or kid. Thank you for your words!! ❀️❀️❀️
