Nurses Reveal Their Favorite Patient Lines!

I like when patients ask for their nausea medicine while eating a cheeseburger and fries and requesting a second tray from food service.  —Heather Burton

“I’m allergic to 25 mg Demerol, but I can take 50.”  —Rebekah Hudgins

When patients with severe acid reflux ask, “What do you mean I can’t have pizza? What else am I supposed to eat?”  —Liz Johnston

On their 100th visit for treatment: “How long is this going to take?”  —Leslie S. Peguero

“I’m not obese—my clothes are shrinking!” —Ginny Riddle

I love when the elderly patients use their call bell for something and say, “I’m sorry if I woke you up….” —Keri Greenier George

“Can I borrow $300? I promise to pay you back. You’re a nurse, you look like you make good money.” (Awkward!) —Victoria Quinn

“I have end-stage fibromyalgia and need refills on my two narcotics.” —Kimra M Griffith

“I get redneck syndrome from that antibiotic.”  —Heather Mercier
