Jul 21, '07 by EmmaG, RNQuote from mfordf150Our employee health nurse was sweet as she could be, and she really knew her stuff, but when it came to administering a PPD she was brutal. Blood running down the arm, nasty bruise, pain. Every timeI had a second TB today as well, the first one was negative as could be, didn't feel a thing and you couldn't even see puncture hole, However, my test today was painful, and a few minutes after it was done, the area began to redden and a bruise has formed! I am not sure what she did, but i'm pretty sure it wasn't right! Sorry about your experience, You should know more when they read it .
The hospital put most all of us through a class in how to read PPDs. Then we were allowed to give and read each other's yearly tests. They said it because it was more efficient, but I often wondered if she'd gotten a hold of one of the administration lol.
