  1. I never would have thought of that...
    I, too, am IV challenged... ;) I bolded the part I had a question about. I'm not in acute care anymore, but I was still curious. So, when you say uncap the catheter, you mean just slide it out of...

    I would handle it the same way as Flare posted above. I always refuse when a staff member wants me to check out private areas of students. I will ask the child to go in my bathroom, and tell me...

    Then, maybe you shouldn't add the word "then" to the end of your sentences, then. There. Now we're both being rude for the sake of it, then. No wonder people are getting disgusted with this site....
