I'm Jess. I am a nurse... I work night shift. I have a dog and two crazy roommates. I am a vegan... not one of the preachy ones though. I love ellipses. Currently residing in the PNW.
All my stories are purposefully vague and generalized to protect the guilty... and to abide by HIPPA.
I make none of the .gifs I use and gather them from various sources. I have no idea who makes them, if I did, I would undoubtably give them props. Thank you all the .gif makers out there... without you, my humor could not be adequately expressed. You're the best.
Tonight I worked on the new observation unit. The night was pretty uneventful. On this unit we draw our own labs. Why? No idea, just because we’re special. Anyway, I have three patients. I drew everyones’ blood from the same spot… left hand, vein in the middle. It was a coincidence the first two times… then I did it on purpose the last time because I’m weird and my OCD kicked in.
Update from last night… I started a third IV. I had to stand on my head and let the patient have a little bit of a feelsy to do it though.
A totally necessary and professional feelsy, I assure you.
C’mon… I’m a nurse. Nothing I haven’t seen before.
I promise, I won’t be like…
And definitely not…
It’ll probably be more like…
I’m sure it’s very nice, but it’s just not that big a deal for me. I have seen and touched probably hundreds of the things… boy, that makes me sound a bit tarty.
That’s not how these things work. But good luck trying.
Stay in bed buddy.
Probably didn’t use the best body mechanics, but I didn’t hurt myself. Woohoo!
Also, I’m 2/2 with IV starts tonight. Just straight ballin’.
Good thing I learned to do everything myself and to not rely on others a long time ago. Thankfully all these things rarely coincide in one shift. Three shifts in a row like that would probably make me want to quit on the spot.
