How do you handle the smells? - Page 5Register Today!
- Apr 25, '11 by Krissieb03I have been a RN for 29 years and have never had a problem with "smells" until recently. I have worked in alot of areas in nursing, and started out in critical care where you know the smells are tremendous. G.I. bleeds, etc. Now, my nose seems to be hypersensitive, especially to poop! Really makes me gag. I breathe through my mouth and chew gum. Seems to work for me.
