Relax, Take a deep breath.
Only 2 weeks of training? What were you doing in nursing school? What have you been doing for the last 6 months? Did you not have rotations in school, through OB, OR, ....?
Relax, Take a deep breath. Adapt. Improvise.
I'd go to my supply closet, grab a penrose drain, - You said Post-surgical, right? Get out a suture kit or a suture removal kit. - They all have sterile scissors in them. Take these items to the doc. Tell the doc this is the best you have here. Doc ties the cord with the penrose, cuts the cord, and goes on.
There was a doctor there, you wern't on your own. The ER and house supervisor had assessed the patient and determined that your floor was safe, and that your skills were adaquet to perform the necessary care. Take that as a compliment. The fetus was aparently already deceased. Nothing you could have done for it.
Carry on. You do what you can under the circumstances, and carry on.
Relax, Take a deep breath. have a half of a glass of wine, and a hot bath. Go in Monday and do it all again. If they
trust you, maybe YOU
should trust yourself. You can do this.
Relax, Take a deep breath, carry on.
