I have almost done that sooooo many times!!! they are soo similar!
yehh they should make clamps green or something
If you lay out your delivery trolley then put the scissors with the handles AWAY from you, and the clamps with the handles closest - it gives you that split second extra time to realise (and if that split second means you haven;t got time to cut an episiotomy it wasn't needed anyway)
as soon as i open my delivery pack i get the scissors and put them underneath the tray so i cant accidentally grab them!
LOVE this thread, have been laughing at so many of the answers! Ahh the joys of being a student midwife!
Oooh I have one. I was looking after a lady who'd come in in labour. She'd had a stretch and sweep a couple of days earlier and so I was reading about it. All looked ok until I saw a comment which said "cord felt" at the end of the VE write up. Well, i read it a few times, thinking "nooo, that can't be right". Then decided to discuss it with my mentor. She freaked out, getting all nervous and talking about stikings off etc. We went and told the ward manager who also freaked out a little bit.
I went back into the room to check it again and noticed a teeny little "o" just before the "no". Oops.
Bad documentation on the MW's behalf i think but I then had to go and tell everyone my mistake before they started going mad at people.
OMG ive just flicked through posts and found this and i cant stop laughing!!!! i tried to read it out to my friend and i just roared with laughter....SO funny!!! Its made my day!!!
love all these posts I can, if i ever get into being a student midwife, take these with me...they are very funny and would put me at ease x thank you x
This thread makes me laugh, but also inspires terror at the thought of all the silly misakes that I will make at some point or another :/:
like randomly missing out "t"s? (sorry, but just sooo easy!)
