    They might have been pre-filled by the RN. When we received the test, they did the entire hospital in a few days. In preparation, they would pre-fill the syringes and then, one by one, administer the test.

    I would believe that is most likely how it happened. If I have to draw up a solution 16 times, I would think one would have noticed - I would think.

    In the Army in Germany we were doing a base inoculation for something. There were several lines running through the gym. The one I was in had the medical comedian. He was dancing around, laughing and throwing the syringe like a dart into folks arms and then sticking it in the rest of the way to the distress of the recipients. When my time came I looked at him and said "If I feel pain you will die." He looked hurt and said, "man, ain't no reason to be like that", but even so he was very careful from that point forward...my eyes never leaving his now nervous face. As he finished I said, "today you get to live." I moved on and the guy behind me said..."If I fell pain you will die"...

    You're probably right. What would I know about the way medical malpractice lawsuits work in Indiana?

    Public Service Announcement

    This topic illustrates why rhino has a non-negotiable injection policy, which has been in place since he was in junior high school.

    If rhino is getting a shot, he requires that:

    1. rhino is allowed to read the label himself, and
    2. rhino witnesses the person drawing the contents into the syringe immediately prior to the injection.


    Non-compliance = no shot.

    I was taught to do this by my parents (MD and RN). Only once in over 40 years has it met with resistance. I was in line to get a flu shot at Ivy Tech from some mobile nursing company contracted by the school to sell the vaccinations to faculty. When I got the head of the line, the nurse had filled over a dozen syringes and the vial was no longer present (these were not pre-packaged, single dose units). I stopped her when she tried to grab the next syringe to use on me, telling her (politely) that I need to read the label on the vial and then see her fill the syringe she would use on me. She went ballistic, claiming that I was trying to tell her how to do her job and how dare I question her in any way. I remained calm and waited for her to become calm enough, then asked again. She was still angry, but she got a new vial, a new syringe still in the package, and complied. No one else has ever batted an eye at my request. Some have even commended me for my vigilance, telling me that they did the same thing or that they would start.

    Local news keeps running the story right next to the one about decriminalizing small amounts of mj. People take a pot break for lunch and start making simple mistakes. I know this happens because I've had to deal with it my last place of employment.
    It's all fun and games until the supervisors get bored and start "experimenting ".

    Sure, but it’s not a “TB syringe looks like an insulin syringe so that’s why the mistake happened”
    Amazing Grace, how sweet was her sound.
