Professional Experience Placement - Day 5

Filed under:

A week has passed since I started my placement. To be perfectly honest, I've thoroughly enjoyed the journey traveled so far. My preceptor, Stephen, is a very generous man. It must have took a great deal of patience to deal with someone like me, who is so green on everything, and made so many silly mistakes. When I finished my placement, whether I pass the assessment of not, I am going to write him a card.

As of today, I made a very big mistake during the preparation of Dithranol cream. I think I weighted out 50g of sorbelene cream when it should have been 90g. A very silly mistake that gave away the confidence Stephen might have on me. After all, you don't find someone who can make such a mistake.

A disaster.
