i had a visit to the er two nights ago due to my many ailments and just not feeling up to par. the physician has excellent bedside manner, which i complemented her on, but as many know, solu-medrol gave me a pe in 2001, and i nearly lost my life. so it being well known, i assumed she would have read my many allergies, especially since some are lethal. all the nurse told me was she was going to give me an injection to help my breathing. when the nurse from the facility where i live asked her what it is, she said, 'solu-medrol.' a huge red flag went up, and she told the nurse i'm allergic to it. then when anything goes wrong, they blame us for not speaking up. :angryfire give me a break already!!:angryfire
are our physicians so busy they don't bother reading our charts anymore? that was a frightening experience, and it has me very nervous:uhoh21: about being treated there. no wonder i hesitate about going there for treatment--and i don't think that one is any different than any other.
