Update

Many apologies for the loooong delay in writing a post.

As has been mentioned before, I am currently in the latter stages of my Paramenace training and the last eight weeks have been fortified with learning, studying, exams, promises of losing ones’ job if failing the exams, more learning, extra studying, complete absolution of alcohol/drugs, and generally gaining weight through inactivity.

However, I have now passed the “bag” training period and still have a job!  This means I am now onto the Hospital placement period.  Here I will have four weeks of observing different areas and departments – and where I need to fill in ridiculous amounts of paperwork to prove I have done so.  My first week has been with A&E where I have had to gain  experience . . . and of which my next blog entry will be covering.

Hopefully, from now on, most of my entries will be real (ish) time related with the odd “old” job thrown in for good measure.

Please…..read on.

“Cannulate” When a patient needs to be able to take drugs via their veins (a little like when a drug addict injects heroin into their veins).  We place a “cannula” into one of their veins in their arm (ideally) so that they can recieve either drugs or fluids . . . or both . . . but not heroin – sorry.
