Right, crush my spirit

It's rather disheartening to learn that the IV saline lock that I placed--which I thought was pretty darn good--was deemed inadequate.  I hit it on the first stick, it flushed well, no problems noted...but to those that know more about IV therapy than I, it wasn't a good job.  Bah.

Yeah, I know: practice, practice, practice.  But given how I float around a lot, I don't always get the patients who need IVs started.  And it's kind of hard to practice on myself.

I think it's time to take an official IV therapy and phlebotomy course.
