Fail, fail, fail, fail, succeed

IV Skills Part 1

ER Nursing 101 – you’re triaging a patient just brought in by EMS and they report seizure activity during transport. You ask if they have access to which they reply no, so you drop a line in while you’re triaging and the patient seizes while your drawing labs. You calmly ask them to throw a tegaderm on while you hold his arm and wait it out.

When it passes you finish drawing your labs, get an order for 2 of Ativan and push it. You thank them for their help, and think to yourself – nice!
