Making doctors/hospitals liable for Medications Over-Dose
May 2015, I was at Wesley Long ER with bronchitis with a chest x-ray, which was clear I was informed that I would be given an albuterol treatment because of some tightness in my chest. I was given intravenous steroids, only after asking what is was (which was administered without making me aware before introduction to my system). However, I was informed of the intention of one hour and twenty minutes of albuterol to relieve the tightness. I stated to the attending physician and physician assistant that I have always had a low tolerance of medication in general. I also stated that this would be an extreme amount of medications and time for my body to endure. Of course I was totally ignored regardless of my patient rights. After the one hour and twenty minutes lapsed my heart with into a fibrillation, tacky cardia and into heart failure. Immediately, I was transported to Moses Cone Heart unit and hospitalization only for 4 days and 3 nights because I refused Electrical Cardioversion and Catheter ablation. Why would I trust the people that put me in this condition, to be the ones to try to correct their error. I was also told there were risks and no guarantee it would be effective. I am still dealing with these issues with lots of medication. My life has taken an unnecessary 180 degree turn and no one has been held accountable because of loop holes in favor of the medical community. Please respond if you have anything in common with me?
