Tonight I had to go to our locked inpatient psych unit to relieve them for break since there is only 2 RNs there at night. I've done it before and it has always gone well with all the patients sleeping the whole time I'm there.
Tonight 3 patients were still awake when I got there at 12:30 am. They were conversing quietly at a table in the common area. I just sat at the nurse's desk while 1 RN when to break. All was fine. Then 1 patient gets up and I happen to notice his shirt. It was a black tee shirt and on the back it said "Caution does not play well with others"!!! And the not was underlined!!
I about fell out of my chair and had a really hard time not laughing!!! To see a psych patient with that shirt on just seemed hysterical to me! Maybe I'm the only one though.....I'm not sure!
