Venepuncture Success!

Quick medic life update- I took blood from my first patient!

She had lovely pearl earrings, matching a lovely pearl necklace and lovely accessible veins.

Funnily enough, she had the same name as the first patient I tried to take blood from….British monarch it is then (see previous post)….

And she also gave me some ‘grandmotherly advice’ (her words, not mine).

Lesson of the day: Fake it. Fake it until you don’t need to pretend like you are absolutely confident in sticking a needle into someone’s arm (my words, not hers).
