Today was the dreaded lab day for class, pericare, catheter care, all the embarassing stuff. We saw the quite graphic videos at our last lecture, and of course everyone giggled, even us old foggies. Today, hands on in the lab (on manequins of course) putting it into practice the giggles were no more. Well there were, ws an odd situation, but not nearly what I expected, and they are a nutty bunch!! My crazy lab group got a sence of it. We also placed bed pans under eachother, to see what that feels like, and put depends on eachother (all fully clothed of course) Not at all comfortable in either situation. A good lesson learned on what it feels like to be the person geting care in that way. Not fun. Not fun at all, but necessary to have empathy.
