I'm a nursing student thats about to start my 2nd sem of ADN. During my first clinical rotation I was giving a bed bath and my patient had a BM and I didn't have a problem cleaning him up but I couldn't help but gag...I really felt bad
and now I'm going into the 2nd semester and I would hate to do that in front of a patient again. Do any of you guys/gals how any tips or know anything I could do to help control this.

I remember hearing on TV somewhere (CSI maybe?) that a good smile stops the gag reflex.....maybe true, maybe not.....worth a try though!
