Look what the head nurse did.

MrGee has every right not to look impressed ..........
This is the result after the nurse put the dialysis needle into a vein and, negligently, out through the other side of that same vein! Initially this botch-up gave MrGee a huge lump on his forearm near his fistula. A few days later .... the lump reduced in size but the underneath of his arm bruised up badly.(Thankfully it wasn't too painful though.)
The Doc was furious with the nurse and threatened to report her!
