PG 13 Blog Post Here: The Stories My Patients Tell Me

"I was a stripper!"
"No really, what did you do?"
"Really. I was a stripper."
"Come on, be serious."
"In Baltimore, Maryland. Do you want to hear what my name was? Berry Vanilla. That's why my husband brought me the vanilla plant today. As a joke. He knows all about it, you see. My specialty was lactating. I would spray the men. I figured if they were dumb enough to pay, I may as well do it."

This was in the middle of the hallway in front of a patients open door whom was visiting with family. Needless to say, when I walked by 10 minutes later the door was closed.

Welcome to acute care, ladies and gentlemen!
