10 Funky Hospital Smells

Funky Smells

You think garbage collectors have it hard when it comes to on-the-job smells? Well, they do, but at least in their case they’re prepared and can even wear a mask. Plus, there’s a lot of margin for error. They don’t have to look at whatever’s causing the offensive odor; they can just close their eyes and dump it into the truck, never to be seen again until it reaches the landfill.

On the other hand, nurses don’t have it so easy. They’re not only faced with terrible smells that they can’t humanly prepare for on a daily basis, but they can’t just turn their heads and hold their noses. Nurses are in the position having to deal directly with nasal abominations – and a clothespin on one’s nose is not part of the nursing dress code. Whether it’s a particularly odorous medical condition, or the patient itself, hospital smells are one of the hazards of the job.

Of all the bad smells that nurses face, here are 10 of the worst.

    In the hospital you can find many strange smells. You`ll think it`s funny but I like how it smells in the dentists medical cabinets. I take care of my teeth health and I searched a lot for dentists New Hampshire cabinets until I found one good enough.

    I just hate hospital smells and the garbage smell, in fact I don't know which one I hate the most. Thank God that our local rubbish removal NJ service is functioning properly and we don't have to deal with old garbage disposed improperly. As for the hospital smells, they always give me shivers, they make hospitals even more unpleasant.

    I remember the day when I took in the air of a hospital as a medical student for the first time, it turned my stomach. It was routine to admit medical students in the ICU for all purposes, as the wards were too grubby. Within a minute of entering the ICU I felt sick. Smells have a way of bringing back memories associated with them in an extremely vivid fashion. My mind got flooded with images of various times when my mother was hospitalized for Phentermine abuse. I felt so giddy, I had to step out and leave without visiting. Over the years I have got accustomed to ‘Hospital smells’ of all sorts. No issues there.
