I agree, OP is a selfish bitch. You saved a life, that's one of the best things you can do for another person. Hopefully you choke on something sometime and while you're choking someone comes up to you and says, "Gee, I'd save you, but I want a reward. Doesn't seem like anyone here's going to give me one, so later, enjoy death." You should quit your job as well. No one wants a shitty nurse that's only doing their job for a paycheck.
As a nurse you should know that vomiting after receiving CPR especially after choking is a very common thing. Hence the reason they gave masks that allow air through one way but not anything (in your case vomit) back through the other way or you cans always tilt the head slightly away from you just in case you anticipate such an event...
Uhh being a nurse you should know that these types of things happen during CPR when a person wakes, it's not like this person being brought back from death suddenly had a thought that they should throw up on you it just kind of happens. some nurse you are
So because the OP's a nurse he should be okay with getting a mouthful of someone else's vomit while trying to help them? I'd love to see what you would do in their position, man. If you're okay with other peoples puke *in your mouth* I'm afraid of what else you're okay with.
My wife nearly choked to death in March. I saved her with the Heimlich Maneuver. My reward? I get to keep her. You got the better deal.
agree with everyone else. So you had to deal with an unappealing part of your job. I think it's worth it if it means saving someone's life.
