Beware: Nurses Could Hurt Your Baby
Hubby was the one who went through all the agony of watching our baby endure all the pain from IV insertions and needles at the emergency room. The first IV insertion on my baby's left hand was unsuccessful so the nurse tried the needles again on my baby's left foot. Thankfully, the nurse hit the vein. Hubby really wanted to twist the nurse's head because he could feel baby's pain all because of the nurse's incompetence.
On the third day, the doctor told us that they would transfer the IV. We were so concerned because this would be another painful experience for my baby. Two nurses came and set the IV. The nurse tried my baby's right hand. She had inserted the needle but did not hit the vein. What a ***********!!! My baby cried aloud because of pain. After a while, another nurse came and tried to insert another needle on my baby's right foot, and another ************ without success. Hubby was REALLY mad this time and would not allow anyone to touch baby again. He was willing to sign any waiver the hospital would give. What do they think of baby, a guinea pig where they could practice their incompetence?
Finally, the doctor came and told us she would be the one to insert the needle. Hubby did not argue or utter any word thinking, "at least now you are sending an expert". The doctor tested the veins from baby's left hand and noticed the "now hard vein" caused by the first unsuccessful attempt at the emergency room. She tried the sides and bingo, it was a success! It was a great relief for baby and all of us watching him. My other children even cried watching baby cry in pain.
My baby's health is showing good progress. He could now play with his siblings and give a good laugh.
