My instructor and a couple other students were in my patients room watching me change a central line dressing and flush all 3 ports. No biggie. Dressing change went beautifully, as did the first 2 flushes....AND THEN...when I went to flush the 3rd, I couldn't twist the syringe on the port. Tried again, and missed again. Tried again, and then my hand started shaking b/c I was SO embarassed and wondering.... "I wonder what my instructor is thinking?" She turned her head (she probably caught on that I was NERVOUS), and then I got it on and flushed without any prob.
She never said anything to me about it, but I hope she doesn't think anything negative about it, like I don't work well with people in the room.
I can't believe that happened.
