    I have been an RN for 41 years and if a nurse tells you they have never made a mistake, they are lying to you! Learn from this, have a good cry and move on! Thank God he was OK. I had an experienced RN once leave an infiltrated IV running overnight in a baby's arm. When I came on shift I heard a baby crying in pain. I know that cry and I mentioned it to the nurse. She said, "he has been crying all night and he is a brat." He was 5 months old. I ran in there after report and took one look at that big arm, ripped the tape off, and the crying stopped. See, you made a mistake, and that is expected. You were not, what I call, "willfully ignorant." There is a huge difference and you are going to be OK.
