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.
