Yeah, uh, don’t use that sort of stuff on kids. That’s kind of a no-no. In fact, it was such a no-no to the people who were at this hospital that social workers were called to make sure there was nothing else going on. Even if something is safe to use on dogs, like a flea or tick spray, that doesn’t mean that it should go on kids. They aren’t the same kind of animal, not everything will work the same way.
Also, and we can’t believe it’s up to us to point this out, but flea and tick spray won’t work on lice. Once again, they aren’t the same kind of animal. Hopefully the parents got an earful about not using dangerous chemicals, the lice got removed from the kids, and everybody got to go home.
What a Wonderful Image
Stubbornness can be a good quality in some instances, but being stubborn about not going to the doctor when you clearly have a need to go isn’t going to win you any favors. We’re sorry if your toes or feet hurt after reading this story – just know that you aren’t the only ones. It’s a little amazing that the doctor asked what was going on, and the wife said that his foot smells, but that’s all the information that the couple was prepared to give.
Maybe they didn’t have the best eyesight, but they still have their noses, and the guy still has nerves down there, doesn’t he? Maybe not, if this story is to be believed. This kind of thing seems like it could have happened in an episode of “The Munsters” or something like that. A body part just falling off.
Hopefully Doing a Better Job
Robert Diaz was a nurse who went by the name “Angel of Death.” Hopefully you won’t force us to say exactly why he was called that. The man who kept all his documents from every single hospital stay managed to get through his time with Diaz – looking at the info, he might have been too young for Diaz to take notice and offer his immoral ministrations.
This run-in with a notorious serial killer might actually be the reason why this guy kept every single piece of information. Nurses and doctors and all the other experts have to sign off on treatments and things like that, so if something did happen, this man wanted to have all the facts possible. Thankfully, the rest of the nurses he got actually tried to keep him alive.
It’s hard not to get a little creeped out by this one. Such a specific image, “voodoo people,” whatever that means, that more than one person in the nursing home reported seeing. As we can tell from this collection of tales, elderly patients who might not have some weird things going on in their heads have a tendency to have hallucinations and see or hear things that aren’t there, but more than one person seeing the same, specific thing is a little different.
It was even a lady who was noted as rarely speaking. There is always the chance that she just heard the other resident explain what she was seeing, and the image got stuck in her head, too. The second woman isn’t described as having dementia or anything like that, so it’s hard to say.
Even Doctors Can be Wrong
Everyone is very happy that this unconcerned doctor was wrong. Doctors have to see a lot of very tough stuff frequently, so it comes as no surprise that some of them can forget that their patients are people too – people with feelings and emotions, and maybe people who won’t want to hear that their unborn child hasn’t survived. Also, he was entirely wrong.
Maybe he was a newer doctor who was all sure of himself and puffed up with his fancy degree and everything, and he wanted to show off his knowledge in a way that made it seem like he knew what he was doing. But it turns out he didn’t, and the baby was fine. Once again, thank goodness. Maybe that doctor needs to sit in on a few more classes.
