It's a joke that's bantered around many U.S. workplaces: The need to have coffee delivered via IV -- or directly into one's veins -- to get the day started. But should anyone be stupid enough to try injecting coffee, they'd likely learn as did Rejane Moreira Telles that the results can be tragic and deadly.

Telles (shown above), a student nurse at a hospital in Rio de Janeiro, was on the job for just three days when she says she mistakenly injected an elderly patient with coffee lightened with milk, according to a Brazilian TV program (via Medical Daily).
