Starting IV's is almost 100% psychological with me. I am not. and have never been the, "I'm on the IV team" greatest......but I am competent.There are just times, patients, situations where I know, think, feel, before I even try, that I am going to blow it.I can hit them all day long, then I get a patient who says "I hate IV's" in that really shaky scared tone of voice. I know it would be weird for a patient to say, "Oh I love IV's," just some you can tell are really phobic about them. No matter how great their veins are I blow it!
