I am having trouble confronting a certain student that is doing something that really bothers me (during clinical). This particular student tends to start doing things for patients that are mine (from my experience; don't know if she does is to other students as well) and this didn't upset me at first but today I found it really irritating. I'm not talking about things like getting them water and crackers, but "skill" type of things that I think I should be doing or at least asked about since it is my patient and I may have not done that skill yet (especially if I picked that patient for a particular reason i.e. he/she has IVPB medications that I want to do). I know that we are all in the clinical setting to learn but I still think common courtesy for your fellow students should not be left out as well.
Anyone else experience this similar problem? If so, how could I deal with it "professionally" instead of passively and getting angry inside? Or am I just a greedy and unreasonable person? I'm always open to constructive criticism.
(*Or maybe because it's the end of the semester and I've had it up to here with everyone in my class since we spend most of our lives together ... this coming summer break is MUCH needed!!! LoL!)
