I would like some feedback. I am in clinical and I did a procedure that I thought i was allowed but it ended up that I wasn't. I am a first year student studying to be an lpn in Canada and I was wondering would it effect my permanent nursing record in the future or just on my student file. I don't know how it works for nursing in the real world when they make mistaks and if any one whom as a student made a mistake. I didn't hurt the patient or anything just was helping them get dressed before being discharged and undid the cord for the Iv so they could put their shirt on and get it right back asap. I wanted some feedback and advice on this topic and what your experiences have been. I'm pretty upset over this situation and I know we all make mistakes just worried about my record as a future nurse. Thanks for everything.
Help student nurse need some advice.
Yes, there was an extension set attached to the iv catheter. I did disconnect the iv tub from the iv hub and that started to bleed.
I thought it was the right area and the patient bleed like 2 drops of blood and then connected it right away. I disconnected the wrong part. That's why i let the teacher know what happened and know I'm like afaid of what will happen. The patient was discharged and was happy that I helpedthem out. Hope this makes sense.

I have to meet with the teacher and head department of my college to determine a course of action.
I will learn from this experience for sure.
Yah, they observe procedures 1st when we do them and then assign us off to do on my own latta on but now I lost their trust because I did something I wasn't suppose too. It's hard because I want to be a nurse more than anything. I truly feel bad for this but i'm happy the patient is okay. Are u a nursing student or currently working as a nurse? Thanks alot for your advice. I feel a bit better but i'm still in shock.
