Doody, doody, doody, do, doody, doody, DO, do, do, ta, do, do........

My answer is "WHAT ARE YOU DOING DISCHARGING HIM FROM THE HOSPITAL WITH CLOSTRIDIUM DIFFICILE??????

Clearly, I'm going to be that nurse that says, Nope, you are staying here. It's people like you that make my kids sick and require me to stay home from work.

the real answer is:
****CD causes diarrhea accompanied by flatus and abdominal discomfort****

They make the most common stuff sound so gross!! Aren't you glad I'm keeping you part of my studies??? You'll all be nurses by the time I'm done!!!

Off to study!!
