Doesn't sound like drugs. It appears to be an anger management issue.

If this happened at kaiser I would understand why. Nurses there are horrible people. So if it was, good for the nurse.

That's because Kaiser fired their nurses and replaced them with CNA's & LPN's

Neither have I. Aieagrl, you should have stayed in school, you could have actually graduated from Alvah Scott. Put your pipe down for a few minutes.

Kaiser has talented people for sure in all departments, but take the word of experience, you always need a family advocate to watch over you. Heard a doctor not answer an emergency code report "I was putting a band aide on my toe". They're human, they mistakes and can misreading the allergy information in your file. Don't be beguiled by Emergency Care. They are walking and talking and .... human beings with the same potentials.

People have no respect anymore. If there is a specific law against attacking cops or firemen, it should apply to medical personnel as well.

Hard to believe anyone would be stupid enough to provoke someone with sharp objects in their hands... A nurse, corpsman, medic... would be the LAST person I'd want upset with me. LOL

Were her parents with her? Who took her to emergency? That emergency doesn't always let an advocate attend through the entry process. So if that's the case then the institution is open to question.

Know of an old person who was abused in a sleep lab. Would have been better if he had the courage to get up and leave. He lay bound at the chin for hours. Every patient has to know when to leave and find other resources. Patients still have the right to say, "No" and go. Can't go back to emergency because of being chastised for smoking. Old person just can't quit, but at 80 what's the point? The damage is done. Provide palliative care and let him live as best he's able because he started at 7. No going back to emergency. Just as well. Dying on his own terms.
