This story is true. I can’t make this stuff up. The Greatest Hospital in the World sent out this email to all of the nurses last week. It’s about diaper wipes. Allow me to give you some of the highlights from the email:

Dear Valued Employees:

As you may be aware, we are having major potty issues at the hospital because nurses are flushing diaper wipes down the john. It’s great that your patients are squeaky clean, but this practice is making us terrible unpopular with local businesses and with our county government. How you ask? Last night, the county pulled a mountain of diaper wipes out of a pump station that is located by the hospital. These wipes caused a septic back up that affected local restaurants, as well as many office buildings around the hospital. Needless to say we are on everyone’s shit list, no pun intended. If the county’s pump system has to be replaced due to another baby wipe incident, we will be billed a half million dollars. Starting today, all baby wipes are being eliminated from the clinical area. Deal with it, and have a nice day.

Best Regards, The Greatest Hospital in the World.

You know that it’s just a matter of time before the hospital has to shell out the money. God, I hope we get our raise before the toilets back up again.
