Dear Patients, Please Read The Paperwork By Yusuf Halimah BNsc, RN, RM.

As a nurse, I give discharge instructions to patients, and I take that very seriously because it’s critical to their safety as they transition to being back at home.

 

Unfortunately, some patients don’t bother to read the information at all; others simply don’t feel well enough to pay attention to the details.

 

Either way, it’s risky

 

I know a patient who suffered a second stroke after leaving the hospital because he didn’t take his medication correctly. He’s stable now, fortunately, but that’s why it’s so important that you read those instructions carefully.

 

If you’re too tired to do it yourself, ask a family member for help. Once you’re home, use a care coordinator or an ask-a-nurse phone service.

 

Call if you have questions—doing so can save your life.”

Doctor Land in Court for Spraying Patient’s Contaminated fluids on Nurse in USA

A lawsuit charges that a doctor at Johns Hopkins Hospital sprayed a nurse with a patient’s contaminated fluids as part of accepted hazing by attending physicians.

 

The Daily Record of Baltimore reports that Benjamin Waldbaum filed the lawsuit Thursday in Baltimore against Martin Slodzinksi. Waldbaum’s lawsuit says Slodzinksi felt comfortable spraying him because “the hospital tolerates an environment of hazing and abuse by attending physicians.”

 

The lawsuit says Waldbaum was assisting Slodzinski during an operation in June when Slodzinski unscrewed a syringe from a patient’s IV and sprayed him with the fluid. It accuses Hopkins and Slodzinski of assault, among other charges.

 

Waldbaum’s attorney, Ari Casper, says Hopkins isn’t taking the incident seriously. The newspaper reports the hospital says it’s taking the allegations seriously but declined to comment on the lawsuit.
