Oh, wow! That is scary, especially because it is so simple to make mistakes like that. Labelling is definitely crucial!!
I'm glad you get traffic from my site! A lot of people come by trying to figure out if nursing school is for them- I think my stories scare them, and then they see your site and think, "hmm... he doesn't have to clean up poop all day. Maybe THIS is for me!" :)

Yup, radiograhers don't have to clean up poop all day which is good.

But we do have to do barium enemas. :D

And also, at least in the state of Arizona, we put in IVs and catheterize patients periodically. So i definately have some new skills to learn! :-)
