And what is your least favorite? 

My favorites: changing IV dressings , wound care, Foley D/c (is just good to see a patient can void without that tube in), trach care ( I love when I can help someone breath better instantly) 

What about you?

Placing IVs and getting that first set of labs, cervical exams, especially when there is progress 🎉, placing Foley's (in females) so satisfying to see that urine in the tube 😜

IV insertion and drawing blood, especially when I can get a difficult patient on the first stick.

I have to say a lot of the D/C's are very satisfying.    Removing a foley almost always is greeted with the appreciation of the patient.     But even pulling IVs and the like when the patient is going home is satisfying.
