When I went for pre-op labs for my 2nd knee replacement, the lab tech tried twice & couldn't get a vein. She called for reinforcements who also could not get it. They ended up calling anesthesia to find a vein for them!

Do you sometimes find it is better if the person going for your vein doesn't know you are a nurse?

Also, if someone is really good, I am sure to complement them and thank them!

Once, as I was standing in line for labs to be drawn, I watched a guy draw blood from two brothers, just little guys, maybe 5 and 7, and when neither of them even sniffled or flinched, I knew that phlebotomist was GOOD!

Me (nurse) to patient: Grow a set, will ya! This will hurt less than your reason for being here".:no:

Nurse to patient (me): BACK!!! GET BACK, I SAY!!!:madface: You nurses ain't laying one finger on me!!!:cautious:

Part two should have read 'me (patient) to nurse'. But you get the gist...

I've been told several times that I give pain-free injections...and I've had looooots of practice. And recently with doing blood draws at the clinic I've been volunteering at, I've been told they barely feel it when I stick them. I must have a way with needles. :)
