"...a peripheral IV. Scales used all four subclavian kits they stocked in the Unit, and there was blood everywhere when Penny called the supervisor for more. The supervisor brought what ER had, plus all the kits she found in Central Supply, and told Penny to document the incident for the Director of Nurses. The questionable event had been reviewed by hospital board members, who had required that Dr. Scales receive training in subclavian insertion. ..."

"... mind. Just thank your lucky stars you got her out of here.” I guess this is another thing I’ll have to write up.” Penny described to Maureen the multiple-copy incident reports she had learned to fill out in Jacksonville. “We could use those here! Yes Ma’am, you’re chopping in ..."

"... and called the hospital. “Jacksonville Oncology, Ellen speaking.” “It’s Penny, Ellen. I forgot to make out an incident report for losing the ethyl chloride. Please tell the supervisor I’ll do it tonight.” “No, you don’t have to–-we found the can stuffed in a sock at the ..."
