My daughter is back in the hospital

Posted by   + Show Post

 So here I am in the hospital since Saturday now.  Her enzymes for her pancreas keep going up, she's miserable, tired of being here, in pain and is discovering "new pain scales".  So tired of this.  4 hours of almost constant stabbing to get a specific IV line in.  Sometimes I wonder about the decency of some of the staff here.  But I know I'm frustrated and tired.  Just thought I would let people know why I'm AWOL again.

peds nurses are awesome at difficult sticks.At the far other age range when both my grand mother and m-i-l were ill towards the end of their life their 90's...the ped nurses were the only ones that could get the sticks almost always the first time.

Ask for peds nurses she deserves to at least not to have to deal withmulti sticks for the same thing.GOOD LUCK and hugs.

Quoting HopesNDreams:

Before they stick her, ask that person what their specific qualifications are to do it. You want someone trained in pediatrics and at least an RN. You have the right to refuse to allow them to continue if they seem like they cannot do it.
Before they try, are they making sure she is well hydrated?

Quoting proudmother5946:

If she has small veins, you could ask for someone from pediatrics to try. If they can't get an IV in after two tries, you have the right to ask for another person.

Are they numbing the site first? That can cause the veins to disappear.

When I was pregnant, I would get very dehydrated...the hospital knew this and would always send in their IV team, yes the hospital I went to had several nurses that their only job was to start IVs on the patients.
