    Hi , I was a registered nurse for thirty two years before I took early retirement last December. I did enjoy your story which reminded me of my first clinical experience. Though it wa not my first patient I clearly remember assisting my fellow student to do a bath and dressing for a paraplegic patient with decubitus ulcers when the Principal Nursing Officer burst behind the screens and ripped us apart for having what she called "those dangerous looking forceps". Afterward the patient consoled us. We became friends and I visited her after she was discharged until the time she died. I am still friends with her children. This really made a difference for me.
