Not for the faint of heart TRUE story!
You've been warned....
Ok, so one of our nurses shows up at a patient's home to find the sister in the room with the patient doing something. Upon examination the nurse finds out the sister is digging out the patient...........with a butterknife.
Yes, a butterknife....
So the nurse told her to stop and explains she could perforate the bowel, the patient said that they were uncomfortable from the constipation so the risk was inconsequential.......(ok I worded it more elegantly)
But a butterknife?
