5 years ago in my first clinical. My instructor told me she had the perfect first catheter opportunity. I got excited and said lets go. It was a very elderly lady about 80 yrs old who was very confused. (I guess that's why my instructor thought I should do it being that I am a male and wouldn't want to practice this as a student on an AO x 3 lady) Any way, turns out this lady began to kick and scream. Before it was over there was 4 people on every extremety while I was forced to insert this catheter. HERES THE PART THAT REALLY STICKS OUT. As I was inserting the cather, the confused lady yelled out, "I'm never coming back to this church again. They didn't do this kind of stuff at my old church."
I hope this doesn't offend anyone. Poor little lady. I felt really bad but inside you just had to chuckle a little.
