Am gonna lay it out here...all the way:uhoh21:
What can ya'll just NOT handle when it comes to patient events/care? I don't know about ya'll but I just can't take HARDCORE PHLEGM - you know the COPDr who is doing these major hocks and then just comes up with this huge wad of green/yellow phlegm.
It make my skin CRAWL! The first time I realized this bothered me was in nursing school and some poor man was laying there doing his "thing" trying to get all this crap up and I just had to let go of his emesis basin and run for the bathroom!
I then proceeded to throw up! :imbar
I can take smells - I can fix that with a mask and some perfume or Vicks..but the auditory embellishments in respiratory patients in nursing just make me so sick. I just avoid them, and have told supervisors not to assign them to me.
Anyone else had this problem?
