Looking for a recipe, I ended up going through a bunch of old journal entries today, including the pictures from immediately after Astrid was born, and realized for the first time that my IV site looks absolutely horrid and bloody.

Can't say I'm looking forward to next semester, when we practice starting IVs on eachother. I've never had an IV stick that wasn't horrible.

Hot damp washcloth on the site when you first get in the room, prep for the stick, hot damp washcloth after you stick them.

Wow, I didn't know anyone did the practice-on-each-other thing. That would freak me out. We had dummy arms (useless), but pretty much just practiced on the patients. I would have been glad for the chance to stick another student before I did a patient, I think, but I wouldn't have been up for someone sticking me...

Yes, in the trade-off between practicing on eachother and practicing on patients, I think I'd rather practice on eachother. We obviously have to practice somewhere, but practicing on someone who is already vulnerable always makes me feel bad.

Unfortunately, the phlebotomist I had dibs on dropped out :(

We ended up not being allowed to do sticks on eachother, but that was a brand new policy this semester.

Still haven't had a successful stick, with three weeks remaining, but my ER rotation is coming up, and that's where most people have gotten theirs.

I've seen you comment, mostly in [livejournal.com profile] grypx's lj, but some other places... then I noticed you're friends with some of my IRL friends, so I thought I'd add you... Hi! I'm Rachel.
