Today, I saw a man lying on the street. He seemed unconscious, so, being a nurse I went over and found he had choked. I removed the object from his throat and used CPR to revive him. My reward? A mouthful of vomit. FML

agree with everyone else. So you had to deal with an unappealing part of your job. I think it's worth it if it means saving someone's life.

wtf? how is it a shitty nurse just because he doesn't appreciate that he got vomited in (not on, in)?

And the OP never said they expected a reward, that was metaphorical AND sarcastic... dumbass

sorry first off who uses CPR to get stuff out? you use the hulmulch maneuver/J thrust(sorry don't know how to spell it)to clear the throat? Second if you do the J thrust,you should expect throw up

As a nurse you should know that vomiting after receiving CPR especially after choking is a very common thing. Hence the reason they gave masks that allow air through one way but not anything (in your case vomit) back through the other way or you cans always tilt the head slightly away from you just in case you anticipate such an event...

Number 70, she wasn't being selfish just because of feeling bad for having a mouthful of semi-digested shit. She saved a fucking life ( or he ) what a bitch ay? She tasted another persons vomit, I don't expect you'd be a jolly little bastard then, would you?

Uhh being a nurse you should know that these types of things happen during CPR when a person wakes, it's not like this person being brought back from death suddenly had a thought that they should throw up on you it just kind of happens.

some nurse you are

So because the OP's a nurse he should be okay with getting a mouthful of someone else's vomit while trying to help them?

I'd love to see what you would do in their position, man. If you're okay with other peoples puke *in your mouth* I'm afraid of what else you're okay with.

I'm assuming if you were a nurse you'd know that is a pretty likely outcome from CPR.

It sucks but that would be like a janitor whining about having to clean up after other people. Its part of the job.

LOL.. carefull... they don't call it the Heimlich Maneuver anymore, something like "abdominal thrust maneuver" now i think, just wanted to warn you as there are some crazy people on this site....

They're probably complaining because they ain't gettin' no money from it. I don't know why the Alzheimer family isn't complaining,or any of those whose family name is associated with something horrible.
