That sounds terrible! I'm sorry you had to go through that!
I was in a car accident when I was a first semester nursing student. I was brought in via EMS to the hospital I was doing me clinicals at. No one could get an IV started on me..there were 7 unsuccessful attempts before they paged anesthesia to come down and try.
I had a broken radius and a dislocated tib/fib ankle fracture and the ER doc decides to pull on my foot with ZERO pain meds on board!!
Needless to say, I was screaming! I was pretty po'd after that as well. I wound up having ORIF surgery, 1 plate with 7 screws. Then when I got up to the floor, the RN would only give me 1mg morphine q4
hrs, even though I could have 1mg q1hr and my pain was 10/10..it was worse after surgery than before! Then they switched me from morphine to regular vicodin. Yeah, that didn't do squat. Then my IV went bad and they didn't restart it so I had to get IM morphine. Again with the 1mg BS, even thought I could have had more. I told them I needed percocet, but I never got it.
Got sent home on norco 7.5mg and was finally able to control my pain. It was so ready to get out of there! It was a truly horrible experience. I later had clinical on an ortho unit and was shocked at how freely the narcotics were given out..made me wish I had my surgery there!
