My nurse Cathy was wonderful!

March 11, 2017

I was in Outpatient Surgery for a tonsillectomy. My nurse Cathy was wonderful! I began to pass out while she was placing my IV catheter. She immediately jumped into action, laying my head down and raising my feet in one motion. She ran over to the monitor to check my blood pressure, and when she saw my eyes rolling in the back of my head she called for help. There was immediately four other nurses in the room, I had ice packs on me everywhere, and somewhere in the mix one of the nurses was able to place my IV catheter and give me fluids to help me feel better. I never actually lost consciousness, and I'm so grateful for the wonderful team that Meriter has in their surgery unit.
