    Young female vaginal delivery walks on mother baby unit with male. I walk in to do fundal rub 5 minutes after arriving. Walk into room female and male having sex. Blood squirting out everywere I stepped back out and waited for them to finish. After finishing she asked if someone could change the sheets and clean up room. She tore vaginal wall during sex Dr had to stitch her up.
    That sounds like an abusive relationship.

    Today I learned not to try to medicate a patient outside while it is jumping up and down in a puddle of its own urine. A big dog can splash that stuff right in your face.

    Still not as bad as the time I tried to clean a broken kennel drain full of sewage with a high-power hose. Sometimes I feel like such a dufus.

    It's not nice to refer to patients as dogs and patient rooms as kennels.

    Why were you medicating a patient outside & letting them jump up & down in their urine.

    She was outside with her kennel-mate and I thought I could save time by doing it out there before I brought them back inside. They often split up and run in different directions when you have two of them together.

    I work at a vet clinic, if that's not clear.

    Not really, cause this site is called AllNurses.

    I am a Registered Veterinary Technician. When I joined a few years ago I asked around and everyone was fine with me sharing my experiences.

    Sorry. I knew there were a few other vet techs here, so I didn't realize it might be confusing.

    We are the nurses of the animal world. In most countries we are called veterinary NURSES. So I would guess that veterinary technicians (which is what we are called in the US and Canada) would include us. I've been on this board for a number of years.
