The Official Abilene Rob Guide to Not Having Your Colon Perforated by the PBDS Test
Part Two: The Fine Art of Jamming Needles Into People
If I remember correctly, the second part of my test was all about IV therapy. They showed a bunch of pictures of jacked up IV’s and asked, “What would you do if you saw this?” The problems were pretty much what you would imagine they would be; I’m not giving any specifics, because I don’t want a terse letter from anyone’s legal team.
Some of the pictures were grainy enough that I wasn’t quite sure what I was seeing, so I incorporated my reasoning into my answer (i.e. It looks like I’m seeing X and Y, so I think the problem is Z, and I’m going to do A, B, and C.) Did that help me? I dunno, but most of them were straightforward enough to just say what the problem is and how you would handle it. If I remember right, the format is one picture per question, and you just enter your text into a single answer box.
An 18-gauge should never be started in the iris, and the stat-lock is secured on the eyebrow in such a way that the catheter is likely to shift when the patient moves her face or an IV line is connected. I would discontinue this site and restart it in the sclera of the right eye, then cover the previous site with an eye patch and monitor the patient for signs and symptoms of piracy.
