I Got My Bandaid. I’m Done!

I helped out as a check-in person at the vaccination clinic a few times. One time, I was paired with a nurse who liked to put the bandaid on the patient before she gave the shot. She peeled off half of the backing and put it on the patient’s arm to give herself a target and so she wouldn’t have to hunt for the injection site. Brilliant!

This worked beautifully until she got to one young man who was a little unclear on the concept. He was so excited to get his bandaid and announced “I got my Bandaid! I’m Done!” He hadn’t felt a thing. Well, that was because the nurse hadn’t given him the shot yet. He was a little disappointed that she insisted on giving him the shot anyhow. He wasn’t upset, at least. The rest of us got a giggle out of his announcement, anyhow.
