Stories from other nurses

This is from the "you get as good as you give" file:

A CNA is in caring for a resident. Unfortunately, this resident is no longer able to communicate verbally, so does a lot of moaning. On this day, the resident is babbling so the CNA tells the charge nurse that the resident is "speaking in tongues". (Nice, huh?)

The CNA returns to the room to care for the resident and thinks they're going to be funny.

"Christ compels you," says the CNA.

The resident looks the CNA straight in the eye and says, "So, what?"

Scared the daylights out of the CNA. The only thing the CNA did right (in my opinion) was report the incident to the charge nurse.

This is another one of those things that was funny when I initially heard the story, but now that I've had time to think about it, it just seems stupid. On the other hand, I'll bet the resident's soul got some satisfaction from knowing that they got back at that CNA.
