    The smell, the look the texture, the cleaning up, being close and personal with the situation etc. This is another reason why I tell people who want to go into vet med to do some shadowing at a veterinary hospital. If the potential tech can live through the experience of pulling a decaying calf...well they might do okay.

    I was a Student Nurse giving a confused elderly woman a bath.Her mouth was very nasty with dried white stuff all in it.I gave her good mouth care and was leaning in to clean good and she spit.I had my mouth open and it went right in.I ran to the restroom and vomited and kept cleaning my mouth.Needless to say,I learned to keep my mouth shut and keep better distance from that lesson.I still about vomit to this day 15 years later about this.

    Oh I quickly learned the hard way to keep my mouth shut when I'm within 3 feet of a patient, nose breathing only. That's actually one of the tips I would pass onto a newbie. Did she spit on purpose?
