I am new here.I am a new Nurse and have started my first job on a medical/ surgical ward.I am enjoying it alot. I am having difficulty though with preparing IV antibiotics. I am getting help from senior nurses and i am studying as much as i can about it re the aid of books. But I feel stupid when im preparing Iv antibiotics. It always sprays everywhere and i think the more i worry about it the worse i am getting. For example i was drawing up iv augmentin the other day , you know mixing it with 20mls of h2o. it was going to be administered IV push (under senior nurse supervision) , but as i was preparing it, it just seemed so hard. i just dont get it. The suction/ the air/ the vacuum/ the pressure!!! Has anyone any good articles/ videos that really explain it all. Because the containers are glass when i put water in it to mix it their is all this pressure and it spews everywhere.Where i trained as a student we were never thought this. I have done the IV training last week and am currently doing it under supervision. I want to learn all about it so that i do it correctly without it spewing everywhere.i would LOVE if someone had a really great explanation or helpful tips!!! Any body help?
