I sware! I don't know how some of these techs get hired, but I had one today that stuck my needle very deep! Then she claimed that there must be two accesses on top of each other. I explained to her that there was a balloon because of the clotting off a few weeks ago then she said well sometimes they put another access on top of the bad one, and I'm thinking to myself, lady no they don't. I've never heard of that before, anyways she thought I had two accesses that's why she  ::)went deep. Now my arm is sore thanks to her. Good thing this lady is leaving to go to devita next week, let them deal with her.

Oh god, don't send her to davita houston.  I already have a couple of those.

Come to think of it, nothing is funny anymore.

Nothing that I post here is intended for fact but rather for exploration into my personal thought processes.  Any slight, use of words with multiple connotations or other percieved insults are totally unintended.  I reserve my insults for private.
