Traumatizing experience yesterday because of one awful nurse in Emergency Room. She was trying to put in an IV line and it was really hurting so I asked her to stop and take the needle out. She said it couldn't be hurting me. She would not remove the needle, and continued digging and putting vacuum on a nerve or something, willfully disregarding my repeated requests. Earlier, I had asked for some thing to cover my eyes as the lights were bright and she plunked a fully folded ER blanket over my eyes, nose, and mouth. What kind of person does that? This was trauma-triggering. She seemed completely disconnected to the realities of patient care. I asked to see her Supervisor, so she decided to shift the narrative. I heard her say outside the curtained exam room that I was threatening. I had only become panicked and vocal about her not hurting me and respecting my rightful request that she terminate the IV placement immediately. Thank goodness the Supervising Floor Nurse came and listened. Unfortunately, I did not receive the care I had been brought there to receive, leaving because of an unnecessarily triggered PTSD trauma response. I do not recommend anyone be subjected to this type of treatment from a self-described "expert and long-employed" nurse. I hope someone at Highline Hospital reads this and responds.
