Today, working as a CNA, my nurse convinced me that in order to collect a stool sample, you had to have the patient take a dump in your hand. I only found out he was kidding after I collected the sample. FML

Being a CNA myself, I have to wonder if you paid attention in class. They generally teach you how to do samples, and it always involves a container of some sort. I hope you were at least wearing gloves. It seems like a silly thing to wonder, but then again, you didn't have the sense to know the nurse was kidding, either.

Common sense should tell you that's not the case.

You would think you'd have some knowledge of basic procedures before going into this job. YDI

Please tell me you were allowed to wear gloves!

"Sir are you sure I have to do this" "In the hands it is!" "Well... okay then"

Frankly the nurse should be fired. I doubt the patient enjoyed that either. And you don't humiliate your patients.

I say you dispose of the sample like a monkey and hurl it at the nurse who told you that.
