During some downtime at work last night, a couple of us got into a discussion about the accuracy of the temporal artery thermometers. Opinion was pretty evenly split between us though so we decided to check our temps with both oral and TA thermometers.
The coworker who picked up the TA also decided to make everyone guess their own temps. When he got to himself, he scanned his forehead and goes "aha! Just like I guessed..."
Another nurse, who was just passing by, jumps in - "a hot mess." And kept walking. It was perfect.
