Like a real Nurse

So yesterday at work was full of the fun and amazing things we nurses get to do in a shift. Two admissions, a straight cath, a nasty dressing change, stool sample for c-diff, two suppositories, TB injections... and numerous accuchecks and their subsequent insulin coverage injections. Not to mention orientating a confused resident back to reality and medicating the rest of them. Not counting the 1 call to the doctor for a high BG level... overall it was a good night.

  1. lol wow!
    Do you have good catheter skills? OMG when that nurse was putting the catheter in me.. it felt like my flesh was tearing up inside.. and to go through all that pain to have her say "Not getting any urine... am getting blood though." lol yeah, thanks, now get out.
    Then they ask if I wanted another nurse to try.. hell no! lol

  2. women are harder to get sometimes. I have a 1/4 record right now getting the cath in the first time and getting urine. However, if you'd just gone pee she wasn't bound to get much return the blood part makes me wonder... usually that means traumatic entry.
