So I spend a lot of time in the Short Stay unit of my hospital right now. I have hyperemesis (severe morning sickness) and get IV fluids every 2 - 3 days. When they do IV fluids they've been giving me anti emetics by IV (which actually work). HOWEVER... the anti emetic they have been giving me I have developed an allergy to. It makes me jumpy and twitch and weird feeling. So my midwife prescribed a new drug which is not kept in short stay. So short stay called pharmacy last night. THREE HOURS LATER my new medicine finally shows up. At which point my bag of lactaid ringers had finished and they had to start a 2nd bag just to give me this medicine.
The short stay nursing staff rocks. The pharmacy can go die in a fire.
