Don't hate but I drew my first lab of my RN career unsupervised yesterday! LOL Ok so the tube ended up being spoiled and the blood clotted and it was a fail at the end. Like I blew through the little vein and she'll have a pretty big bruise. But it was an awkward position, this home care thing is tough and conditions are less than ideal.
But anyway, yeah it was a weird feeling to just do it like it was something I did every day. It was also nice because the patient was all, " You are so calm and matter of fact that you put me at ease." Dude my hands were shaking and my heart was pounding so hard! LOL Never let'em see you sweat I guess!
