the adventures of a veteran nurse in an inner city ER
I think people steal some stuff simply because they can. A patient stole our fetal doppler, too. Unfortunately, (for her) she had given us the correct information (for once) when she was registered; we had her phone number on the face sheet. Charge nurse called her and said, "Bring it back in the next 30 min. and we won't call the cops." Magically the doppler appeared on the front desk. One nurse had her purse stolen, the thief went across the street to the mall and used her credit cards to run up 100's of $ in charges.
Had a little old lady in a wheelchair steal two full boxes of gloves from a room once. Only noticed because I'd restocked them before she went in and they were gone when I cleaned the room afterwards.
WTF are you gonna do with a fetal doppler?! Syringes, I understand. Fetal doppler...no.
Wow .... some people!
The major linen and pillow thieves in our ER were the EMTs. They would say that they left theirs with the patient, so why are they walking off with armloads - especially pillows? On snother note, why are pillows in hospitals in such short supply?Most unusual theft? There was the time I was driving near the hospital with an anesthesiologist friend of mine and saw someone crossing the street pushing a vent. Really? What was he going to do with a vent? List it on EBAY? We got the police involved and it turned out pretty easy to find him; he couldn't get it into his car! Tricia
Hand sanitizer, even when attached to the wall.
We've had a heap of local anasthetics stolen. Like 1% xylocaine and such. Now have to keep it locked up.
