Thank you.

To a degree; even if you're tired and bored, you should have pride in your work, especially if your work involves people's health and sick people's comfort.
Hence line two of my comment. Perhaps it's wishful thinking, but I would find it slightly less worrying that the staff are simply bored and careless than truly incompetent.

Okay; how does that excuse incompetent practice of their field?

The people doing the sticking are rarely the highly trained or highly skilled people. Those are usually prioritized to areas where their talents are more useful. Most of the people I've been stuck by, outside of a blood bank, were usually the newbies.

It doesn't, as you'd have realised if you read past line one of my original post.

You mean it would, in fact, be the same thing. Regardless of the excuse, incompetence is incompetence. I understand your point perfectly: if you took the best F1 driver in the world and had him run the same course for 18 straight hours, he'd begin to get rather sloppy. The difference is, I suspect that he'd slow down and be more careful deliberately.

If you're suggesting that the staff is overworked, I agree. We need more physicians, nurses, orderlies, etc. This doesn't change the outcome.

Well, how else will they get experience, right? :?

I don't disagree with the practice, I just think those in charge should either take more time making sure the newbie knows what they're doing, or make themselves available before the newbie turns the inside of my elbow to hamburger.

I'd use the analogy of driving down a dead-straight road for hours on end, but your point is made.

Do you have ANY idea how that sounds? :happydevil:

In other words, awful.

Either one really, the result is the same.
