10 ways you know there's a male nurse on the unit,

So, how can you tell when there’s a male nurse in the house?

10. The Hoyer lift is thought of as the backup option.

9. Someone at the nurses’ station isn’t wearing a print top.

8. You no longer call Dr. Strong at the first sign of need.

7. You find yourself with a box of gigantic gloves and wonder where the smaller ones went.

6. Conversations based on sports have somehow infiltrated the unit.

5. Somebody left a burger and fries on the table, where you struggle to convince yourself a salad is fulfilling.

4. Patient assignments are frequently changed after you have taken report and made your first round.

3. A patient keeps calling your co-worker “Doctor” regardless of how many times she is corrected.

2. This complaint becomes familiar: “There are no XL gloves here and they were ordered just for me.”

1. Someone left the toilet seat up in the nurses’ lounge restroom.
