This is definitely true, but even if they didn't have the equipment, she should have at least been moved off the floor, properly bandaged and assessed, and then moved to another hospital if need be.Originally Posted by LedBoots
That should never happen. But in canada, aren't only certain hospitals eqiupped to do certsin things? I work in the states, where all the hospitals have the equipment and staff for a trauma but im not sure in canada.
In my hospital, a visitor had an anaphylactic reaction to a food, and I sent her daughter to get her epipen. I would have administered it if it hadnt been 2 years expired. We had of course called transport and she was taken to the ER and was fine. I could have been sued if I gave her the shot, BTW.
So much for the hypocritic oath or whatever it is the medical bods are supposed to take.Apparently, hospital staff wrongly thought they would not be covered by insurance if they treated a patient outside a hospital building.Apparently, hospital staff wrongly thought they would not be covered by insurance if they treated a patient outside a hospital building.
