[FONT="Comic Sans MS"]I was so embarrassed!!
It was my first time woth this nurse and we were doing a wound change (my first time). The first one was fine, I did great. The second wound was very difficult to get to, pt was contracted and the nurse had to hold his leg up while I cleaned the wound on his ankle. It was very dirty and the smell threw me for a loop!!!!! I almost gagged and the nurse I was with did gag! I cleaned the wound and changed the dressing. After as we were working on the paperwork, I started to get very dizzy and sweaty. I told her I thought I needed some air and she told me to get out of the room and head to the bathroom. I couldn't believe the reaction I had. I was so embarrassed!
I think I can still smell it!
