one of the nurses had taken a leave today and hence i had to take her injection room job....(in phcs usually basic drug injections are provided and a room[with a sister] will be assigned to it.)

from the time i started[around 10.30] patients kept on coming and by the time i finished the work it was around 1pm.Seeing the patients reactions here bought my childhood memories back when i used to run away from injections and do all sorts of gimmicks to avoid it[during routine vaccinations].When after uploading the drug into the syringe we press it until a drop or two spills out[ to avoid air clot formation in the artery] and children[some times adults too] here on seeing it get all sorts of phobia and instantly start crying[this is infact the best part infact and i secretly smile to myself like a devil:D]...overall it was a nice funfilled interactive learning experience and to be true was my best here till now.

p.s-one patient after getting the medication asked me whether he can take bath[since he had fever]...i said its his wish for which he replied back saying some one had told him not to do so and is now stinking like a pig!!!!

has bestowed me with an award..cute's blogger award..i thank her for this but i really dont know why i got it[my blog is cute??!!]!!:P

I used to be scared of Injections when I was a kid. The best part was overcoming it.

I met with an accident and had to have more than 150 injections in a period of 2 months.

Since then I am quite cool with little needing piercing down my skin :-)

Nice Post!!!

I remember this one time I had the doctor and the nurses chase me across the ward to get a tetanus shot when I was a kid. Though by now I'm nearly a doc....I still close my eyes tight shut every time I get stuck with a needle!!!
