Off To A Roaring Start

09 Mar

Got my first week on my unit taking care of live patients.

The things I have learned thus far:

  • Watch where you are aiming the saline flush when the plunger gets stuck. 
  • Always remember to attach the IV tubing to the patient instead of laying it on the bed…and then forgetting it. 
  • Security frowns on strange people doing strange things outside their hospital.
  • Plan on changing more bed linen than a hotel housekeeper.
  • Documentation will make you its bitch.

My feet and my brain hurt in equal measure.
