A Friday the 13th Foreign Body Mishap??

What does this X-ray reveal?  Looks like the scrub
nurse was preoccupied by counting sponges and over-
looked keeping track of the instruments. That looks
just like a straight Mayo scissors at waist level

Foreign body false alarm. That's just an x-ray of a student
nurse in uniform toting scissors in the standard location.
When a snip was needed, student nurses could pull those
scissors out faster than an outlaw cowboy could draw a
six shooter.


  1. You are absolutely correct and they make for lousy bandage scissors - blame it on my deteriorating eyesight. My foolishness and oversights often distort reality.

  2. I'll take an aged surgeon over a young whippersnapper any time.
