I am having a difficult time with adhesives. I know that sounds strange, but let me explain. In my clinical the other day, we were working on IV insertion using a manikin. I had no issues selecting the proper "vein", size of catheter to use, applying the tourniquet, inserting the IV catheter at the proper angle and into the vein, attaching the saline lock, etc. My problem arises with properly dressing the site. For some reason, as soon as I am at the point where I am ready to apply the dressing, things go wrong. As I was applying the dressing, I had issues with it sticking to my gloved fingertips. As the adhesive on the clear dressing began to stick to me, I did my best to try and maneuver it onto the manikin's arm, but it just got worse. It started sticking to my fingertips even more and began to misshape. As I got the edge of the dressing unstuck from one fingertip, it was all the sudden stuck to another. I finally applied the dressing, but it didn't look pretty. My instructor told me I need to work on my dexterity. I was so embarrassed. I want to be a good nurse. I do well at skills, until it comes to the mix of adhesive and gloves. I don't feel that my dexterity is necessarily bad, because I am good at the majority of steps involved in skills. But obviously I do need some work because this is not the first time I have had this issue. For some reason, I am just having issues with being able to properly apply adhesive dressings or coverings without it sticking to my gloved fingertips. Any advice??
