Yesterday I got to run my own bay, with six acutely ill patients. There was no one watching my back, I had my own healthcare assistant and I was responsible for getting one of the qualified nurses to administer drugs when I asked them. If I didnt ask the patient didnt get. It was huge for me, I didnt screw up, it all came off without a hitch and was a massive step for my training.
Unfortauntely today I am feeling rough, very rough. My ward is still infected with norovirus and I was hoping the fact I had only just gotten over this virus meant I had a greater resistance. Unfortunately Virii have a habit of mutating so the immune system cant recognise it and you just end up getting reinfected.
Also given I have just reread this post It appears I'm not thinking too clearly either.
