We all love those contact precaution fancy expensive stethoscopes.  We always wondered why patients on contact precautions never had murmurs discovered.  Here at GomerBlog we dissected the components to figure out why we couldn’t hear anything.  What we discovered might explain things:

    Satire but True-FischerPrice toy better MT : Contact Precaution Stethoscope Anatomy http://t.co/3FLk4OoFox http://t.co/udaeQX6x0Z

    It’s true!!!! Lol

    Always chart, unable to fully assess due to contact precaution equipment, deferred further to physician for further eval.

    If they gave us littmans to use we would just steal them!

    Catherine Peirsol-Schipper- You must have some really dumb CNAs. The techs here are smart enough to use the proper (albeit shitty) disposable cuffs.

    As long as your exam doesn’t include heart, lung and GI sounds…

  • Erin Mirenda Moore

    Ugh. *slaps and shakes head….

    But what I really love is how the nursing assistant spends 5 minutes gowning and gloving, and rolls the vitals machine into the room, comes out, properly disposes of her gear, and rolls that same magic machine with the same non disposable cuff right on in to the next room.

    Well, I’ve been told stethoscopes are contaminated

  • Vadim Korkhov

    The correct answer is because no one ever checks.

  • Alan J Pollock

    Oh yea!

  • Julie Flynn

    Hahahaha, we call it the FisherPrice Stethescope.

  • Courtney Simpkins

    Lmao

  • Bill Clark

    this is why all my notes on these patients include the acronym “LGFD” = looks good from doorway

  • Chelie Harrell

    Banana ha! That’s about right!!!!

  • Alicia Rosa

    Same reason breath sounds are always “diminished”

  • Igor Shkolnik

    This is so true. You can’t hear anything. Most of the time it’s completely pointless to even use it and I am basically just going through the motions so that I could bill for a physical exam.

  • Laurie Ann MacPherson

    Ah. The trusty craposcope

  • Dillon Savard

    Hey I thought Gomerblog was satire – when did they start printing actual straight-up truth? (Like this!)

  • Fullafaith Dezertdoc

    Funny! The ones we used at KD were actually pretty good; can’t remember if murmurs were heard but rhonchi and wheezes were audible

  • Beth Morris

    My rule is that if you can’t hear it with a cheap stethescope forget it.

  • Heather Joy

    Silencers

  • Courtney Stine

    It’s funny how everyone with C Diff has diminished lung sounds.

  • Barbara Bender

    The Fischer Price model!
