Default Re: Your First Experience of Hospital

I agree with #6.

One of the nurses gave me too much potassium into my iv and my arm was on fire! I woke up screaming hell at everyone, even my husband. I also took off my blood pressure cuff
because I was in pain. Turns out, they were giving me 50 mL of potassium instead of 5 mL. My doctor sure was pissed off at the nursing staff because I could of died.
They brought in an EKG to monitor my heart for a while just in case there was damage. But everything is all right.

IF you don't say anything, it could cost you your life.
