IV sites

A week ago, another new to practice RN and I were practicing inserting IVs. Now a week later, I have this inflamed bump at the area. The sk N is healed, but it's still inflamed. Is this normal? I was her first stick.

If you are concerned, you need to discuss this with your health care provider. The other issue is that you and the other RN are practicing on each other- is this condoned by your workplace? I have a feeling it's not.

You really need to speak to your supervisor.... This comes under asking medical advice and as per the Terms of Service of the site we ask that members do not ask for medical advice.
