but today I got a verbal "Duh" from a Cath Lab RN.
I work recovery and I received a Cath patient who THEY wouldn't hold for a tele bed because they wanted to go home(last case). So the guy had a Heart Cath with Carotid angiogram. This is the 1st pt I got with a carotid angio. I have recovered MANY Carotid endardectomy pts though.
So I said "Oh,they can reach the carotids from the femoral stick all the way up?" They both rolled their eyes and one said "Well YEAH, of course. We go all the way to the heart, how do ya think we get there?". The patient, a sweet man just gives me a wink and smile. Well excuse my stupidity and ignorance. What is with people! Do some people reallt KNOW it ALL? I don't and that is why I asked. Jeez
Sorry but this was just a lousy couple days and they P'd me Off!

There was no need for them to treat you that way. It was a perfectly
reasonable questions, they should have taken it for an opportunity to
teach and for you to learn. Rest assured there is plenty that you do that they don't know any-thing about either.
