Today, a patient at the hospital I work at had a tracheal tube and couldn't speak. I'm unable to read lips, but I'm pretty sure he was mouthing the words 'stupid bitch' every time I tried to stop him from pulling out his IV. FML

You're not a stupid bitch for doing your job.

Pull out his tracheal tube and then see what he says.

Lol just put some morphine in his IV and he'll be good to go. Or better yet, just give him a sedaitive and make him go sleepy time.

the patient has a tracheal tube, so he's most likely at the intensive care unit. the patients there are most of the time so confused and sedated by the drugs, that they don't understand the situation they're in and act funny/strange or tell weird things, in this case, trying to get the tube out. also, most patients that have been on the ICU don't remember a lot from the time they spent there (because of the high doses of drugs for example), so he probably won't even realize he called you a bitch. get over it and know your job.

She musn't be doing her job very well if she's only "trying" to stop him pulling out his IV and not succeeding.

Even when you are doing your job, some patients are very quick. All you have to do is turn your head for a second and they can yank on it. There are other units in hospitals that have people with trach tubes, not just Intensive Care

I think he was saying "stop it please" the mouth moves similarly... maybe :/

Loving the way you said that. Sleepy time. Hah

Tell him "stop calling me bich bastered no body would take care of you with that foul tube", he can't reply anyway.

So who cares? It's better than having to listen to him bitch at you.

soo I'd be pretty grumpy to, it's your job blow it off and move to the next person not every one is a happy camper!:p

At least you couldn't actually hear him.
