A Nurse With Attitude

Where Dark Cynical Humor, Nursing Issues, and Politics Seem to Merge

Don’t Brag

Just a little lesson about karma….  Don’t brag.

I got to work a little early the other day and the pre-op nurses had two sick calls and were having a difficult time.  I offered to check in a few patients and start the IV’s.

Patient: I’m a hard stick. Only one person has ever gotten my IV the first time.

Patient’s Spouse: That’s right. They always end up calling someone to put the IV in.

Me, after putting the IV in on the first try: Just so you know, I’m the one they call.

 

I missed twice on the next patient.
