I wanted to share this little conversation I had with one of my patients today which I thought you would enjoy as much as I did!
I was doing my routine checks of catheters and cannulas in the afternoon,and I went over to one of my ladies (I’ll call her Betty) as I knew she had a catheter but was not sure about the cannula.
Now this lady is 100 years old and still as sharp as a tack. Most of our patients are not sure what a cannula is, so I said to her,
“Betty, do you have any needles in your arms?”
She came straight back,as quick as a flash with,
“No, but I have had my fair share of pricks in my time!!!”
