Ass-plody

Props to CrankyProf for coining the term.

I had my own fun outing with the ass-plody recently in clinical. She was a forty something relatively healthy woman who had some mild issues that barely warranted a hospital visit admission. Anyway, she had been a little backed up in the hospital and could only poo small chunks at a time. Just before we got on the floor, her nurse gave her a wonderful cocktail of MOM and prune juice. She warned me when we got up there, and I think secretly she was thanking God for sending an unsuspecting nursing student her way.

With this in mind, I go into the patients room, and she is halfway between the BSC and her bed, with little squirts everywhere for my cleaning pleasure. I get her cleaned up, regowned, and on the pot. Bless her heart, she managed to make it to the pot the next time. I swear I emptied that pot a dozen times that day and never saw her eat anything. I don't know where it all came from. All I know is that I have had another experience with ass-plody, and I still don't like it.
