(read that title with the appropriate James Brown voice in mind)
So my flu was actually strep. It was pretty bad, sending my normal low-temperature self soaring above 101 degrees. I'm quite sure I picked it up when I was down at the children's hospital here, which reminds me:
Can we attribute medical injury to practitioners answering their cell phones during procedures? Cuz I'm no licensing board, but I'm pretty sure it's not a good idea to answer your cell phone when taking someone's blood. I'm sitting there with my arm splayed out, rubber tourniquet attached, needle in vein, and I hear a buzzing. It's my tech's phone vibrating in her scrub pocket.
And she proceeded to answer it.
The needle was still in my arm at this point, and she asked me to assist her in removing it while she held her phone in her other hand and chatted. And I have a lovely bruise.
This is now acceptable behavior?
