I forgot to update on her medicine issues. The following morning after the staff had been unsure of "allowing" me to give Olivia her HIV meds since I didn't have the original packages with, the doctor and nurses in the a.m. shift had no problem with it whatsoever since their pharmacy didn't have them. What I found interesting/sad/crazy is that they first of all COPIED my list of meds that I keep in my purse. Then kept asking what meds she took and how much. Then kept MISPRONOUNCING and MISSPELLING them. I get that they don't treat HIV patients, I can see that it's somewhat foreign to them, but it still seems weird, especially after I've given them a list of meds and have corrected the same people numerous times on their pronunciation, that they continue to not have those correct. BUT they did give them to her.
Last night at her dosage time I hadn't left for the hospital yet. They called me to make sure all of her meds were in the Sunday pm box section, her one liquid bottle being extra. I assured her that they were there. Then she said "And the ... med is her liquid here right?" Ummm... no, it even says right on the bottle what the name of that med is and it's one of the others that is a liquid not the one you named. Just interesting. All I'm sayin'.
