Sydney Soule plays the role of a Receptionist in this episode. She is the daughter of actor, Olan Soule, who also appears in this same story, as a Doctor.
After the physician tells the nurse, "IV, both arms," the nurse proceeds to make some robotic movements around the IV pole. In about 5 seconds, she nods to the doctor, signaling she was done. In real life, the nurse would have spent at least a few minutes accomplishing this task.
First, she'd place a tourniquet on one upper arm, then examine the arm, and hand, for a viable vein. She'd disinfect a potential area with alcohol and make at least one attempt at hitting a vein. After inserting the IV, she'd loop and tape its tubing down. Then she'd go to the other side of the bed to move on to the other arm, and repeat the process.
