Not Just A Diva... a Goddess

It's getting good...

So I did really well on my first big exam, which is a relief. Also the air conditioning was in full effect so that was also a good thing. And I found my wallet, which is a really good thing since the b*tch at the bank wasn't going to let me have a new bank card without any ID which was lost in space with the bank card. Pssht/whatever to her.

Well today miss "I HAVE A REALLY LOUD VOICE" was on top of her game. What fun. We're finally getting to the 'good stuff', though it seems odd that I would term the 'good stuff' with reference to suppository insertion and the like. We're starting small - how to put on gloves, how to put on a gown, what the eff a 'sterile field' is. Good times.

And then there are the always appreciated shocking nursing stories. My favorite so far is the "unexpected erection during catheter insertion" and the ensuing discussion on appropriate etiquette for 'handling' (hah poor choice of words) the situation with grace and professionalism - which ended up being a basic cut and run maneuver. THEN just to keep the "men a part of the discussion" LOUDIE MCLOUDERSTON enthused that if a male patient gets an erection while a male nurse is inserting a catheter that they shouldn' t worry because it is not an indication that the male patient finds you attractive in that way.

In other unrelated news under the topic of "stupid questions", ERMA asked if there were Care Attendants in the OR (keep in mind that an RCA is described as... an attendant who assists people, especially older adults, who require basic nursing care.)
