i don't even care im ready for these jerk nurses, like in clinical, i was always on top of my game so when they dished it out, i came right back but with a smile, and that made them more angry.
oh man! this one time, a nurse tried to say I was dumb because a picc line "couldn't possibly" cause infiltration as she was a nurse for "15 years bla blabla"
so, i said..then why do you go look? and ofcourse it was and i was right. - i was like.. so you don't believe thats a possibility?
maybe she should read about them in her book again stupid lazy witch
my teacher was so proud of me. i smiled, and said "yes, i know when someones ARM is THAT cold, their hand, and forearm is bulging like pop-pye the sailor, that the fluids the cause, regardless of the type of line!
i turned off the pump, but it included the morphine drip - man was she angry!
he was complaining of pain for so long and no one understood why.. i go in, turn him over q2, and wow..he looked like popeye.
they called him into IR the next day, and my teacher kept me updated.
god, i hated her. (that evil brat nurse) but oh man, she looked so dumb after trying to embarrass me at the station in front of the dr.'s and med students! ha! best day of clinical ever.
