Funny Chaos my Sister brought to the Hospital
Too sleepy last night I forgot to write an article 🤣
Last Sunday (April 10), I come home seeing my 4th sister look like she's in pain. I then discovered she's like experiencing diarrhea and can't eat food like walang gana ganun. I think that if that continue, she may experience dehydration which will be a serious problem. Like she can't consume any food but she keep on releasing. By 7pm that day, she complained of stomach ache and chest pain. She said she's not having a hard time breathing but it seems like there's a heavy feeling on her chest or she even said her heart. Mom is not at home as she's on duty in a different hospital 1hr away from home. Mom then advised my sister to come to the hospital near our house (where my mom also works, part time lang sya sa malayo na hospi) if she can't wait for mom anymore. So we went there. Med procedure was made and I was the watcher.
Monday|| After awhile since my sister ate her breakfast, one of the utility came to our room with wheelchair, and the nurse also entered to give her some meds. My sister then ask "masaan po?" (Where are we going), the utility answered "To the x-ray room", I was wondering why she have to undergo x-ray but I just let it go since maybe because of her chest pain?? Or back pain from the previous days. At 10am my mom arrived at the hospital where she works full-time and of course where my sister is admitted. Mom went home after checking on my sister because she have to sleep and rest as she's from work. Afternoon that same day, the doctor did his checking or what they call "rounds", to examine patients and give nurses further instructions if there is any.
As the doctor browse on my sister's chart (like a medical record, results of lab test, meds administered, etc), he saw an x-ray results, and that's when the chaos started. At night, mom brought us food and ask us about the events before, during, and after the x-ray procedure. My mom received a message from her co-nurse saying that their doctor was mad at her because she ordered my sister to undergo x-ray when in fact the doctor don't have an order to do so. My mom was like "huh?? I what?". The doctor is really mad that he said my mom feels she's knowledgeable than the doc, like nagmamarunong daw. My mom was hurt and get angry too (palaban yarn haha) because she don't know anything about it, she's not there and didn't instruct anyone to do the procedure then she'll be labeled as someone who act without order from the high ups, the doctor just jump to conclusions.
Gosh the whole hospital was in chaos.
When my mom arrived at the hospital yesterday, she explained to the doctor together with the utility, the x-ray Technician and other nurses. Yung parang sa kdrama na conference pag may mali or something na ganap sa hospi hahah ganern pero di kasing sosyal na may maganda silang conference room ahhaha.
It was actually the x-ray Technician's fault at most (but even the on duty nurse is at fault too). She did the procedure without seeing an order or request from the doctor or nursing department. It was a miscommunication as well b/w the utility and them because the one that he should brought on wheelchair is the other patient not my sister. But then, the x-ray shouldn't be done if there's no paper stating the patient need one unless otherwise she is not admitted to the hospital and she just come for an x-ray.
They are asking my mom to pay for it but she goes "why would I? I never told anyone to do it plus it's my daughter who was exposed to radiation that is not even needed, so why would I pay?" My mom said paying is fine plus she actually had a plan to have my sister check up and undergo xray test as she's complaining backpain last week. So it's fine that they knew there's nothing wrong with her back or chest or anything related to that, but mom don't like her being accused for something she know nothing about.
It's not yet settled I guess but all who's involved wrote an incident report. It's actually a bad practice, doing a procedure without doctor's order but it's a bit funny too how we're all confused and caused problem to the hospital (even tho we don't really cause it haha). My mom jokingly told the staff that "porket payat aki ko tig xray na nindo" (just because my daughter is thin, you conducted an x-ray) and that's how the situation become lighter but the issue is still alive hahah.
So that's the story of my sister who was hospitalized last Sunday till Tuesday. It's a lesson to all the staff at the hospital and also to the doctor, not to accuse too early and say hurtful words.
Did the doctor said sorry to mom? Nope, he's one of the people I know who's not kind. Yup, I can totally say he's not and that's another story to tell.
Thanks for reading!
Edi talaga kapag palaban wahahhaa
