Totally saw a lady like this in the ED lobby a few weeks back after dropping off a patient. Hers were 6 or 7 years long, and yes, I totally asked all th questions no one else wanted to.

Sweet lady, but sadly she informed me hers were not quite "Guinness Book" worthy.

Things that disgust me:
1. Penetrating eye injuries.
2. Emergency c-sections.
3. Nails so long that they are described in years, not inches.

Oh right, yeah. Tuck the hair in the shirt or under the patient.

Now that we don't have to tape people's heads down to backboards I hardly notice hair no more.

I always have time to put it in a quick up-do.

Edit: ":rolleyes:" added in lieu of sarcasm missed.

Personally I try to get as much hair as possible stuck to whatever tape I'm using.

If I don't have a reason to use tape...I make a reason to use tape to stick it to their hair.
