No, I’m not a vampire, thanks
Since starting residency and having to be the one to get “hard sticks” I realized I have developed the habit of eyeing up people’s necks to see if they have a good external jugular veins. It’s not just in the ED either, but in the cafeteria, on the street, on TV (the character’s on Grey’s Anatomy would all make excellent candidates). A beautiful woman walks down the street and I struggle as to where to look…. at her neck or at her eyes (cough cough). I worry someone is going to think I’m a vampire one of these days.
