Last month my mother-in-law had an elective surgery at our local hospital.
The surgery went well, but her aftercare was a little dicey. One nurse tried to get her to take another patient’s blood pressure medication. Thankfully, my spunky mother-in-law knew she was not to take the medication and refused. A different nurse told her not to get out of bed alone but when 15 minutes of ringing the call bell evoked no response, we helped her to the bathroom.
Sadly, nursing negligence leads to major injury all the time in our local hospitals.
