Really, really more than you want to know.

Maybe there should be a separate Facebook for Medical Professionals. We could call it GrossBook.

GrossBook

Our anonymous submitter says, “I don’t even want to know what a foley is.” We made the mistake of looking it up. We wish we hadn’t.

    You have GOT to be shitting me. I sat there wondering what a foley was, but heeding your warning did not research it. Later in the evening I was was watching a TV show we have called Talkin' 'Bout Your Generation. They had a segment called 'Acts of Foley' complete with the definition for both. What are the chances?

    Nothing better than when a head trauma patient projectile-vomits all over you…yep…nothing better…

    I disagree. A fecal disimpaction on a 70 year old grandmother is the best. Especially considering that I am 6'8″ (my hands aren't small) and that she had been ………. prepped with a few fleets.

    For those outside of the medical profession, this indicates that I had a little old lady bequeath unto me a helpin' of explosive diarrhea. After, of course, I had spent half an hour with my giant hands up her pooper removing the block of rock hard shit finger tip by finger tip.

    Love all the discussion on this one. Keep it coming!

    As the poor husband of an ICU nurse I have to agree. a SEPERATE Grossbook account would be nice.
    when nurses get together on line or off those with weak stomaches should be kept well clear.

    This site (And medical facebook, should it ever exist) is annointed by the almighty. You all are doing God's work my friends. Blessings, pilinoidal cysts, and perianal abscesses be upon you. Amen.

    JMCanoy is an idiot… you don't ever put your entire hand in someones rectum…Nor is it possible… a finger or two at most… unless you have some really loose rectum from abuse of some kind.

    Maybe the rest of you should inform yourself: it's your own body. WTF is so gross about your own body? And for f* sakes, this is HARDLY graphic.

    And plus, what do you expect HCP (for you 13 year olds: health care provider) to do? You strain them out all day, give 'em BS, your family bugs them, they wipe up your a55, work 12 hours days and nights, get no respect from staff and half the clients… not to mention half the nurses and pretty much all PSPs and PSWs are extremely, I have no f'n idea how they got the job, stupid… honestly, once you work in the hospital you would rather die than go get medical treatment, not to mention they hire MORE of the stupid PSPs and fire nurses who actually know what they are doing.

    So I think you should give them a break.

    How about finding some woman's panties in the ice tea urn in the ER?

    I know this sounds horrible, and frankly it shouldn't be stated for the public to read on a social networking type of medium, but once you are in it all…. it doesn't even phase you, and you forget how horrible it does sound to the outside world!

    It is truly sad that so many people consider medical practices “Gross”. This comes from complete ignorance, and could be cured by more people taking a night course or on line course in basic medicine. Consider this fact that so few know. Urine–or to be more colloquial call it piss–is sterile. Yes, completely sterile unless that person is carrying a disease, and that is often, but not always obvious through their appearance.

    Urine is made up basically of uric acid, ammonia, water, and some trace elements, and yes, if someone pees on you, it may have an odor, but unless they are sick, it will not harm you and the odor of ammonia washes off quickly with plain water.

    Gross, or interesting?

    By the way, a Foley is a type of catheter that uses a balloon to retain it in the bladder until time to remove it. It is generally a painless procedure.

    Playing catch with a hardened fecal mass… Now THAT is truly gross. What an IDIOT! I suppose he also keeps samples at home to show to guests…

  • Nicole King

    Latest info is that urine is NOT as sterile as once believed. However, it isn’t known to carry pathogens.
