Boing!

Today, I was giving a patient an injection when I heard a cracking sound and the needle was gone. Panicking, I got a doctor to have a look. The patient was sent to have x-rays to find the needle in her thigh. I then noticed the springback system in the syringe. FML

Please never touch anyone with a needle if you don’t even know what kind of needle you are using going in. 🤦🏼‍♀️

That’s a butt puckering couple of minutes for the patient (and you)...

Yes and no... Sometimes you're given a syringe that's pre-packaged and prepared loaded with medicine for a certain symptom and you've never seen the style before. When you're used to standard syringes, shit can still surprise you. OP did the right precautions and took care of the patient in case it actually was off inside! Humans aren't perfect, and that includes doctors.

F your patient's life
