Earlier this week, my brother had to be taken to his local hospital Emergency Department for a suspected infection. He was accompanied by my sister because he is developmentally disabled and cannot communicate verbally. After being seen by a physician, he was prescribed IV fluids and IV antibiotics. After the IV antibiotics were nearly infused, alarms began to sound and my brother grew visibly uncomfortable. Despite the presence of alarms, no one stopped in to check on his IV. As it turns out, the entire bag of antibiotics had infiltrated into the tissue surrounding the insertion site.
