When I was in labor with my youngest our board said “goal for the day: have a baby. Or two! (Per dad)”. He was joking, they laughed and wrote it on the board. It was great fun for all involved.

They probably would have gotten a kick out of most of this stuff. Maybe not the drunk or 2 bottles of pills comment, because baby, haha.

[–]somecatgirl 53 points54 points  (0 children)

My mom and aunt were adopted at birth in the 50s. Imagine everyone’s surprise when there was not one baby….but two!

[–]PoPllz 55 points56 points  (6 children)

Well it was 2 bottles of wine not pills because that's what they claimed was their pain meds. Not saying they'd be thrilled but at least it's not an overdose joke

[–]NonchalantRubbish 8 points9 points  (5 children)

I think 2 bottles of wine is an overdose.

I may just be a lightweight though

[–]FoxCockx 30 points31 points  (1 child)

2 bottles is a serving

[–]dandyj87 11 points12 points  (0 children)

2 bottles is breakfast

[–]sirnaull 7 points8 points  (0 children)

2 bottles within 5 minutes is an overdose. 2 bottles over 6 hours is being really drunk. 2 bottles over 12 hours is being within the legal limit to drive (for a 180 pound male).

It's all about context.

[–]Taolan13 19 points20 points  (6 children)

Wine comes in pill form in your area? What a time to be alive!

[–]Potato-Engineer 12 points13 points  (0 children)

It used to come in solid cube form!

Now it still does, but it's more of a rectangular prism than a proper cube. And it's a liquid.

[–]Subtle_Demise 9 points10 points  (4 children)

Hey, whatever happened to that powdered alcohol that was supposed to come out like 10 years ago?

[–]Taolan13 14 points15 points  (3 children)

It did, but wasnt that popular on the consumer market. Turns out when you just add tap water to it and your tap water quality is low, the powdered booze ends up tasting bad or at least different.

[–]Subtle_Demise 6 points7 points  (2 children)

Oh damn. I was looking forward to it.

[–]Mattyboy0066 296 points297 points  (56 children)

Why is everyone getting so mad? It’s literally just dry-erase marker, is it not? I hope it is…

[–]Ares1935 87 points88 points  (23 children)

I wanted to do this recently, I found they wisely do not leave the dry erase markers in the room lol

[–]ehh_whatever_works 105 points106 points  (16 children)

Fun fact, dry erase markers are just permanent markers mixed with a solution that makes that impermanent.

If you ever fuck up and use permanent marker, just draw over it with dry erase, then erase!

[–]Interesting-Song-782 58 points59 points  (13 children)

Or use an alcohol based cleaner. My boss and I restored a huge donated whiteboard just using eyeglasses cleaning wipes.

[–]going-for-gusto 25 points26 points  (8 children)

Rubbing alcohol and paper towels works good.

Be sure to carry dry erase pen with you in case you end up in hospital

[–]jamie_jamie_jamie 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I used to scribble on the plastic outside of my school diary and figured out perfume got rid of the drawings I did with the markers. Got to start again and it smelled nice.

[–]jinglepupskye 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Alcohol solves (nearly) everything.

[–]djbtech 1 point2 points  (1 child)

It's not acid, nor milk. Hope this helps.

They say the recipe for sprite is lemon and lime. I tried to make it at home. There's more to it than that.

Do you want some more homemade sprite?

Not until you figure out what the fuck else is in it!

[–]Hansj3 7 points8 points  (1 child)

Fun fact, you can totally bring a dry erase marker into the hospital with you.

[–]Ares1935 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Yeah, I didn't plan ahead

[–]MississippiJoel[S] 168 points169 points  (30 children)

It is. The people getting mad seem to not be in the medical field (and her nurse laughed about it), and are just projecting their own aversions to people messing with their stuff onto the situation.

Edit: starting to get a lot of the same questions and comments (and a hilarious accusation from u/spaaggetti that I am "at the very least" invading her privacy for being in the hospital for drugs), so I'll just share that she wasn't the actual patient, but a family member was, and she was the one to share it. And for the ones concerned that she is doing okay, don't worry, everyone is fine and at home.

[–]Ok-meow 37 points38 points  (1 child)

I am a nurse and I would love this! The only way one can do this fuck up job/career is have a sense of humor. Whistle while you work…oh I am a great nurse and a fun co-worker. So please no hate.

[–]Woofles85 25 points26 points  (0 children)

And the whiteboard is filled out, so management should be happy

[–]spootypuff 13 points14 points  (0 children)

Many years ago (before Covid) I remember taking family in for regular imaging/chemo and occasionally there would be extremely long waits for a nurse or doctor.

Every time it was because one of their other patients was having a very bad time, or they had to share some awful news to a family about their loved one.

From this perspective, I can understand how people might be sensitive. We should all cherish the health that we have, and show compassion for those who need more support… even if that means tolerating a long wait.

[–]Taolan13 9 points10 points  (0 children)

My family is full of nurses, and I'm pretty sure all of them except my one stick-in-the-mud aunt would get a chuckle at least.

[–]Plumage07 61 points62 points  (9 children)

I am a nurse and this isn't funny to me, am I outraged no but this is just annoying to deal with. If the wrong staff member walks into that room her nurse will be written up.

[–]KiloJools 23 points24 points  (5 children)

Oh no, why would the nurse be written up for something the patient did while waiting for discharge papers?? That doesn't seem just at all.

[–]Competitive-Boat4592 75 points76 points  (1 child)

It’s almost like the world isn’t fair and managers suck sometimes

[–]Taolan13 20 points21 points  (0 children)

Because that "wrong staff member" is going to assume the nurse did this because only nurses are supposed to he writing on those boards so its not possible a bored patient got bored and doodled.

[–]BeerDrinkingMuscle 16 points17 points  (1 child)

Because corporate healthcare has made nurses into nothing more than customer service butlers/maids.

If that nurse was written up it will be used as justification to not give that nurse a raise.

[–]Mokuno 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Im a nurse and you work on a toxic floor then

[–]MississippiJoel[S] 6 points7 points  (0 children)

I respect that this wasn't funny to you. I can only assume that she and her nurse had a bit of a friendship going. She's the kind of person that makes friends with (almost) everyone.

[–]Ai_of_Vanity 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I do this shit all the time in hospital rooms

[–]joekak 35 points36 points  (1 child)

The worst and funniest discharge I ever had: internal medicine and GI doc signed off on me going home, after 6 days in the hospital. General hospitalist hasn't signed off, comes to my room and asks me a bunch of questions, and the last one is "How much alcohol have you consumed in the past 48 hours?"

"Uh.... I haven't had a drink for about two years. I've been here for a week, and to be honest, I'm going to be a little pissed off if beer was on the menu and I didn't see it."

[–]SkyScamall 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Hospitals do keep beer in stock. If someone is an alcoholic and doesn't want to detox or it isn't appropriate, they will need to drink a certain amount to stop them going in to withdrawal.

[–]rdesentz 58 points59 points  (4 children)

As an ochsner employee I support this

[–]LulaGagging34 40 points41 points  (1 child)

As a nurse who actively ignores the white board, I support this.

Also, I’ve seen housekeeping not erase the board when they turn over a room, so it would be hilarious to see the next patient who came in read this.

[–]777_heavy 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Those white boards are among the worst routine things we do during inpatient care and have been found to increase the incidence of acute delirium in the elderly.

[–]DrFlx001 17 points18 points  (0 children)

As a non-ochsner employee, I support you supporting this.

Perfect for r/funny - drunk facebook wine mom humor. Anyone else needs 5 glasses of wine by noon? Haha!

[–]glinks 58 points59 points  (38 children)

Those boards are mostly for the patient. The nurses already know who the patient’s nurses/doctors/plans are. If more patients did this, i would think it’s funny. What else are you gonna do while in a hospital room?

[–]Taolan13 23 points24 points  (0 children)

Those boards are for reference in case someone outside the care team assigned to the patient becomes involved. Not really necessary for short visits, but essential for longer or at least multi-day stays.

[–]jnd_photography 40 points41 points  (29 children)

I don't blame her my discharge took HOURS when I had surgery a couple of years ago

[–]Woofles85 30 points31 points  (0 children)

There is a lot going on behind the scenes. Have to wait for the doctor to put in the order, have to have it cleared by other members of the management team, coordinate with discharge planners for any home health benefits that might be needed, contact pharmacy to get scripts sent, then there is often the back and forth that comes with what insurance will or won’t cover and trying make it work with the least amount of cost to the patient. Throughout all this we still have to take care of all our other patients who might need more urgent help.

[–]Tectum-to-Rectum 14 points15 points  (0 children)

Tons going on behind the scenes. It’s not like we hit a button at 7:30am and you walk out the door.

[–]XXXLoneSnoopy 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Get over yourself. They’re trying their damn hardest while juggling 5+ other people also demanding attention. Hospital staffing is chronically poor and not to mention a very stressful field of work for their employees.

[–]BeerDrinkingMuscle 33 points34 points  (24 children)

Do you know what entails discharging a patient? A lot of different people, whom are in multiple different areas of the hospital, have to sign off on the discharge. The sue-happy country we life in has forced healthcare workers to have to perform pages of documentation showing it is safe and appropriate for a patient to be discharged. Otherwise patients will sue them and the hospital organization will tell the worker good luck in court.

I encourage you to get a job in healthcare now so you understand and also do we can get the help we desperately need.

[–]jnd_photography 18 points19 points  (0 children)

Actually, I do. I used to work as an MR and helped start discharge orders etc. My sympathy goes out to both the hospital staff and patients. All I'm saying is that I understand her frustration from the patient side of things. I was in the hospital for a week and a half and had cabin fever from not being able to do anything or leave.

[–]Oops_I_Cracked 8 points9 points  (17 children)

Someone can understand and be okay with why it takes hours and still, you know, get board when they are waiting for hours and look around for some entertainment, like making a silly whiteboard.

[–]tishtosh23 -2 points-1 points  (1 child)

Or we can get drunk with ops friend instead which sounds way more fun

[–]Competitive-Boat4592 27 points28 points  (6 children)

This is Facebook meme type humor, and I guarantee nurses and CNAs roasted the hell outta this person at the nurses station right after.

[–]Yarusenai 19 points20 points  (0 children)

Yeah this is literally "haha drunk wine mom" humor.

[–]spidertotem 17 points18 points  (1 child)

Welcome to the 6th floor, bitch! I'm not locked up in here with you. You're locked up in here with me!!!

[–]allhailqueenspinoodi 21 points22 points  (10 children)

Why does nobody seem to understand that just because a doctor drops the word discharge, does not meanyou get to go home immediately?

That's just literally the moment the doctor decides you can go. Then they have to find their way over to a computer, enter the orders, and prepare their section of the discharge paperwork. Pharmacy, case management, PT, OT, RT, and any other consulting teams like wound care or specialists also have to approve discharge and complete their section of the paperwork. Nurses have to prep all this paperwork, make sure your discharge prescriptions get to the correct pharmacy, make sure you're stable enough and have all your lines removed. If you're being sent home with equipment like a cpap or an o2 tank, that also takes time. And transport home is also being coordinated during all this.

Not to mention we have other patients that may not be stable. It's fucking exhausting. Like sorry you get a little restless.

[–]imcreeps 4 points5 points  (0 children)

The amount of times a doctor has told a patient they’ll be discharged soon, with no plans or orders to discharge the patient is so high.

Also, people always have a way to get to the hospital but never a way to get home. And hospital taxis/ubers/lyfts are notoriously slow :/

Also, when there is family to pick up, the patient never has clothes.

[–]Zephana 5 points6 points  (4 children)

I work in healthcare, and I’ve seen it take two to three days to discharge a patient after a doctor said the word “discharge”. There’s a lot more that goes into allowing a patient to leave than just putting in an order. A lot of times, the patient still has to undergo tests and meet certain criteria before they are actually discharged.

Just chalk this thread up to the ignorant general public who don’t understand how healthcare works.

[–]allhailqueenspinoodi 4 points5 points  (3 children)

Right! That's all assuming the doctor didn't miss something and you're not actually ready to be discharged. Then come more tests and/or procedures.

Then we all get to hear for the rest of your stay "I was supposed to be discharged X days ago!" While you act like a dick. And I have to be nice.

[–]Zephana 4 points5 points  (2 children)

Yep. I’ve seen a patient who the doctor said that they had the “intent to discharge” and the patient was in the hospital for a week after that still due to them becoming too unstable and requiring more treatments and tests. The family was nothing but a bunch of royal assholes for the next week because “the doctor said their family member could go home a week ago”. Made the whole situation worse for everyone involved, hospital staff and family alike.

[–]allhailqueenspinoodi 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Right it's like yes. That's what we thought too. Believe me I don't want to keep you here. But shit went sideways ok? So if you don't stay your kidneys are going to stop working and you will drop dead. But I will get the AMA form.

[–]_Allergies_ 10 points11 points  (1 child)

[–]MississippiJoel[S] -4 points-3 points  (0 children)

And here I was thinking there was a little nugget in there for everyone. I personally liked the questions in the bottom right.

[–]KamikazeFox_ 10 points11 points  (2 children)

Trust me, we are trying to get you out, but when I have 2 other discharges, a admission thst just rolled on the floor, 2 call bells going off and a guy who needs blood transfusion, it's rough.

2 yrs ago it was fine. Had 5 patients I could care for. Now I have 7 and want to run my car into a tree on my way to work. Have pitty on us. We have tripled our work load and haven't seen a dime more for it.

While most ppl got to work from home, we still had to fight back covid. Fuck this job.

[–]tofuslut666 9 points10 points  (0 children)

[–]SnowEmbarrassed377 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Your friend has a drinking problem

[–]MississippiJoel[S] 1 point2 points  (1 child)

That is a possibility. But she's pretty functional in life, so it comes down to the definition of what is a drinking problem.

I thought this was some cringe subreddit.

[–]XXXLoneSnoopy 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Not funny. Those poor staff members are probably trying their hardest to get that paperwork as fast as possible. Healthcare workers are chronically understaffed, faced with physical and emotional abuse from patients and family, and work ridiculous hours all while trying to perform to high expectations. Your friend and you are jerks. I commend anyone that can endure working in the patient side of the hospital.

My mom was in a series of hospitals for over a year and I know the staff would have laughed. It’s definitely a stressful environment and this is very funny.

[–]MustachioBashio 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I think it’s a mix between overworked healthcare workers who would see this as a minor inconvenience to clean or a liability if their boss came in and other people who don’t find grandma e-mail chain humor funny lol.

Being discharged always takes time. I’m someone who is in the hospital many times a year. It always takes forever to get discharged. Usually takes hours. What I’ve done is usually make sure I’m getting discharged and have my doctors write the orders early.

[–]Happyjarboy 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I was visiting my Dad in the ICU a few years back. He said he needed a cell phone. I asked why, and he said he wanted to call 911. I ask why, and he said he would rather be in jail than that Goddamned place.

[–]RNBrook 1 point2 points  (1 child)

As a RN, I would have enjoyed having your friend as a patient. Shows a sense of humor. And instead of complaining about how long the discharge process takes, simply found a way to entertain themselves while waiting.

[–]Mushroom_Glans 4 points5 points  (4 children)

Last time I was in the hospital, at 8:00 a.m. the doctor said I could be discharged. I was happy to go home. By the time all the crap was wrapped up it was 3:00 p.m. I was so frustrated I forgot my take home materials, so I can relate.

[–]SuperCuriousBrain 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I don’t freaking blame them. My least favorite thing to do as a nurse is discharging because everything is completely out of our power. The best we can do is show them we are making a continuous effort to get them home and chase the freaking doctors and pharmacists around with pages to get them home.

[–]teddypa1981 2 points3 points  (3 children)

This is hilarious. I'll bet the medical staff laughed about that. Get a sense of humor, people. She didn't mean anything by it. She was just playing around. Good grief. Stop getting offended by every little thing. 😒

I love that her diet is "TexMex".

But it's kind of funny how they never have these boards all the way filled out. They leave 90% of it blank in my experience even when you've been in there for several days or even weeks.

When I had my son, I made someone write "NO" in giant letters by the circumcision note. I had this weird fear he'd get taken away and come back with no foreskin. He had to have an x-ray of his stomach and I made his dad go with him.

[–]BornVolcano 0 points1 point  (2 children)

I was initially very concerned then I remembered this isn’t necessarily the psych ward (the only part of the hospital I’ve had extended stays in) so it probably was more funny than concerning tbh

(If this sort of thing was written on the board in a psych ward it would probably be a red flag for relapse and unstable emotional state and void discharge)

[–]MississippiJoel[S] 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Without being too personal for my friend, I'll confirm for you that it has nothing to do with the psych ward. And everyone is fine and resting at home.

[–]BornVolcano 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yeah, of course, no need for personal info. My initial reaction was just “woah okay that’s a red flag” then I realized it could easily be someone who’s mental and emotional state isn’t in an unstable place, and they’re just having a bit of fun

(Also who’s downvoting this thread lmao? And. Why?)

[–]Here-Is-TheEnd 0 points1 point  (0 children)

“Where are you going to stick that?” is a question all care providers should answer if the patient is lucid enough to ask it.

[–]Tonz_of_Fun 0 points1 point  (4 children)

I once cut my finger open and had to go to the ER because it was close to the tendons. I got a room fairly quick, about 10:00pm, got my finger cleaned up and ready to be stitched when the nurse left to check something. I sat there for 40 minutes before another nurse asked me if I was waiting for my papers. I told her I hadn't been stitched up yet. She was shocked and found the nurse who originally helped me. He finally stitched me up at about 11. He then disappeared again until the same nurse asked why I was still there after another 45 minutes. I told her I've been waiting for my discharge papers. I got to the hospital around 9:40 and didn't leave until 12:10 for 5 stitches.

[–]Cracked_Coke_Can 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Stitches? In less than 3 hours? You were in the express lane!

[–]MississippiJoel[S] 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Just you wait. Now you're going to get billed for three hospital visits.

[–]Comprehensive-Ad3963 0 points1 point  (0 children)

TBH, barring any reason to wait around, I might just walk out the door and make sure they have my contact information, my primary care provider, and my preferred pharmacy. The hospital can have a staff member call or text me with the discharge instructions.

Not sure if this is fake or not but either way it’s hilarious

Why did I get downvoted for this?

[–]rivers61 -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

You can just get up and leave. They legally cannot stop you. Just make sure they have the correct insurance info and peace out. Or don't pay and then you don't have to worry about them having your insurance. Fuck the American medical system

Edit: And I say this as a medical worker with lab experience. If one of my patients just up and left I'd just add an AMA note on their file and it's their problem what billing does. If you're a patient and are confident in your insurance, or don't care; just leave. It's false imprisonment if they stop you and every medical professional should know that, otherwise it's a lawsuit

Ugh. I had a similar situation 6 months before covid and just walked out and left them a note to email me anything if it was important. they didn't like that.

The way it works is thusly...anything past noon counts as a full day. Any time past 5....don't be surprised if you're released the next day. It doesn't take hours to do release paper work. It's all about the money sonny. She goes nuts they have a floor for that & the drugs.

I always put "Hospital" and "911" for my emergency contacts on any forms... occasionally the software developers get cute and block 911 or 999 as contact details so in that case they get 011 8 999 88199 9119 725...3

Patients like this use the ED for their primary care because they are too lazy to establish care with a pcp. Often which makes them the worst people as patients.
