And don't let them drink out of the toilet, either.

I'd like to thank Webhill, who noticed this at her doctor's office.

No way! So, I should stop letting my 2 Y/O play in those LOCKED boxes at my MD's office?

Another save by Ibee and his faithful reader's.

Thanks "webhill," I must not be paying attention to my surrounding-I can never find "great stuff" like this.

WV: FORAN the last name of my 6th grade science teacher who we made beleive she was deaf (only during one class period a day). I swear she beleived it. My aunt was a teacher in the building and she mentioned it to a bunch of teachers and she was involced (my aunt) in the conversation. Crazy stuff. I was sad to hear she passed away a few years later from a brain bleed. Went out to dinner with her husband, had a headache, took two Tylenol and passed less than 30 minutes later. Sad!

Unfortunately, it is a problem. Mothers insist on bringing their kids into the ultrasound room with them. Then, as we are busy scanning mother, kid is busy getting into cupboards, pushing buttons on my machine, opening drawers, playing in biohazard garbage. Oh, look, little Tommy just loves machines..... I can't make my room kid-proof. Please make your kid room-proof!!

I'd love to hear the story behind that sign. Were the kids throwing urine samples around like bombs?

Playing patty-cake with the stool samples, then finger painting the wall?

My internist has a sign, "Your child breaks it, you'll pay for a replacement." He has had at least 3 oto/opthlamo scopes broken because parental units let them run amok in the exam room.

What parent thinks an ototscope is a suitable toy for a 2 year old?

True Story:
Pharmacy chick's mom was a nurse. I've written about her. She came home with interesting things. One thing we had around the house and used a lot was a cooler like this that had been un-used. Blazened across the front of it was FROZEN HUMAN TISSUE.. we used it for picnics...(I wonder why nobody liked our pot lucks)

My son had a PICC line and, therefore, we had one of those red hazardous waste containers in our house. He loved the thing - always wanted to play with it. We ended up asking the nurse who came by to take blood samples and change everything to get us a clean one so he could play with it. He still has it. Makes a great Halloween decoration.

sad that parents have to be told things like that but I've seen it in the hospital I used to work at.Parents visiting Grandpa,kid in a stroller pulling stuff out of the red bio-hazard waste bin.One got mad because I yelled when I saw a little on chewing on some used ventilator tubing.gross

Ya know, the really reallysay thing is that they have to put these signs up. Geez Louise!! As well as ones for adults for Pete's sake!! My kids were not only taught safety, they were taught the appropriate names for body parts (and I switched pediatricians until I found one that used them as well. (Imagine a two year old that gets confused because his ped doesn't use the term bowel movement or penis.)

reliked - anything you liked so much the first time...

We don't let ours play with the xray machine, either.

I wish to use this for a show poster for my punk band's next show. Please say yes.
