Yesterday for school I had to work labor and delivery.
They put EVERYONE on internal fetal monitoring. That became a discussion, bc the mom had no reason, the Dr just orders it I asked why.
"that's just how we do things, unless of course the mom is like you and they know better"
Then mom bled a little more than normal, not gross amounts. After about 5 minutes they came in with a syringe. The mom asked what it was she was told "its for your bleeding" and was given the injection. Didn't tell her what drug, didn't get permission, just did it. It was, cytotec. A drug NEVER tested just put on the market with a high risk of embolism.
This was a different hospital than where I delivered. Looks like they all just do shit for no reason, our without permission.
It made me mad bc these women don't know
