Said the resident when I changed him last night.
He had left me a "present" in his brief on last rounds, & it was a doozy to clean up.
I try to be as gentle as I can, but sometimes you just gotta scrub! Know what I mean?

That was the icing on the cake really...the cake came earlier in the evening.
Normally, when a resident is on the potty doing their business, there's some indication of it so I can prepare myself.
Last night, I did not have that luxury - but my resident had a laxative!
I don't know how something so big came out of this poor woman! It seriously looked like she put out a pound roll of ground beef!
(Disclaimer: Just in case you didn't trust me the first time, the really icky part is coming up next.)
Since I was not exaggerating about the size - it got stuck. Try & try as I might, it just wouldn't flush. It was too solid.
And so, I had to do what I had to do. I gloved up, reached in & broke it in half so it would flush.
So, how was everyone else's first day of the work week??
