Very good demonstration!!!

Nice try, but noticed right off she broke sterility by dropping her hands below her waist. Should have been better prepared, anticipation of what needs to be done and what could potentially happen would have had better outcome. Have trash receptacle right there or bag on bed. Bad technique!. She also broke technique by touching the iodine swab container, although have to give credit for set up, really good idea.
