Ok, so my Dad comes in to the hospital today, and needs iv access in a hurry. So, I get the kit, and go for the right wrist. Damn!! I missed!!! My own father, veins like drainpipes, and I missed.
I am sure some would say, that is why you don't treat your own family. I know, but, when your father is in front of you, and he needs a line, and you are the most experienced person there, you just do it (or, in my case, botch it!)
He's fine now, just been discharged.
