Such a rewarding career

Today, I got projectile-vomited on while trying to administer meds to a patient. Twenty minutes later, a patient with schizophrenia threw his shitty diaper at my face. All this happened in the first hour of my 12-hour shift. I didn't bring any extra scrubs and I live an hour away from work. FML

Damn that sucks. My hospital luckily provides scrubs for us and if we are working on the covid floor, we change into hospital scrubs, if not, we wear our own. (My unit is technically the surgical floor, but one of the 2 floors in our unit got converted to covid because of the massive numbers) Hopefully next time you get bodily fluids on you, you're able to ask for hospital scrubs to change into rather than having to wear someone else's vomit and feces on your body.

Depends on what hospital. I'm guessing OP is also in a psych hospital and I work in a psych hospital as well. There are no extra scrubs. I do know one of the doctors keeps his scrubs at work though so he has extra pairs.

You are woefully unprepared for your job.
