Seriously......a pt I took care of last night informed me that she is highly allergic to the smell of them? OK, sure. She tells me this the SECOND time I come near her with one to wipe the port off of the IV tubing to give her pain med. Earlier, like 3 hrs earlier, I gave her sliding scale coverage and swiped the injection site with an alcohol pad and it didn't phase her one bit.Pt explains that she has seizures and stops breathing if exposed to one. Ok hun. I ask the nurse who took care of her on day shift about this during report and she told me that she too swiped her skin with an alcohol pad and the pt didn't say a thing.Now, I've been an RN for 11 yrs, at four different hospitals in two different states and this is the FIRST time I've come across a pt with an allergy to alcohol pads. Anyone else?
