I violated the Prime Directive!!!
- 7Feb 21 by meanmaryjeanSo everyone knows (or should know) the Prime Directive of pediatric nursing.
NEVER leave little boys uncovered whilst changing a diaper.
Yes, my clothes are soaked, I had to strip and change my patient and his bed at 4am, and he's now wide awake and ready for action.
I will never violate the Prime Directive again......I will never violate the Prime Directive again.....I will never violate the Prime Directive again.....

I once had a little man who was on cytotoxics totally soak me from the waist to the knees. He was sitting on my lap in a rocking chair and was bagged for a specimen inside his diaper. Well, the seal between the skin and bag let go. I didn't realise that we were wet until I stood to put him back to bed and suddenly felt cold...
