OMG, I LOVE this community!!

So I just stumbled into this community while looking for communities of nurses on LJ. I'm already in love. My husband has a *very* sensitive stomach and simply cannot handle work stories of ANY kind.
That's okay, he's amazing at everything else that is required to live with me.

The only story I have right now that is worth posting actually comes from an old nursing instructor. She was my adviser and spent over 30 years working in labor/delivery starting in the early 1960s.
We were sharing stories about doctors behaving badly one afternoon and she told me a story of her first year as a L&D nurse. Apparently, a doctor got fed up with her that evening, and in a childish fit of rage...

THREW A PLACENTA AT HER FACE.

So...
Now, whenever a doc gets uppity with me, I just let it slide off my back and think, "Well...at least I don't have placenta all over me."

Heheh.
