When patients are discharged from the hospital, many are out the door in a big hurry as soon as the physician gives them the okay to leave. I can't blame them. Hospitals are no Disney World.
When it's time for a patient to go, they often leave behind some, well, let's just say interesting things! We asked some of our community members to tell us some of the weird things that patients left behind. Here's what they said.
"I had a male patient leave a vibrator, lubricant and 2 condoms behind. One has to wonder how sick he really was if he had all that with him....eew!" Judy Corinth
" I had a patient leave a trumpet and a can of marijuana, yep! I guess he wanted to have some fun playing his trumpet. No, he didn't return to get his marijuana haha". Cathy Franklin
" A pair of pants and some underwear were left in the room, but the patient's gown was gone. I guess he preferred the gown over his pants and underwear." Lisa Kelly
" A lady left her false teeth, complete with a whole lot of spinach on them...yuck." Lacy Corbin
"Car keys and one shoe. I'm not sure how he got home lol. He never came back for the keys or his shoe. No, he didn't have an amputation while he was here. haha!" Donna Wright
"Two bottles of whiskey and a condom...oh my! hahaha". Tonya Carrol
" A pair of roller skates and a walking stick. I had no clue what to make of this lol". Trudy Dunn
"A container of butter, some bacon bits and some cheese. The doctor had put this patient on a heart-healthy diet for cardiac problems. I guess he wasn't thrilled with the idea'. Darla Kennedy
