this morning i have a lawyer coming to my house at 10:00.
in 2000, i witnessed a colleague of mine being electrocuted by plugging in an 02 concentrator.
i was the only one in the room (except for the pt) and she had asked for my help so a nsg asst came and told me that so and so needs me.
when she plugged it in, there was a loud explosive noise....ultimately she ended up losing consciousnesss and was seizing for hours, right up until the very slow paramedics arrived and even after, according to the cna who escorted her in the ambulance.
so now it's finally going to trial and i am the first witness up on the stand.
the atty is going to coach me ( i would think) and then i'll be picked up by cab on wednesday.
i remember when i had to go and give a deposition...i forgot the exact words the facility's atty said about me but inferred i should be a lawyer myself.
i do remember in the deposition there was sev'l people there and a couple would try and twist my words but i didn't feel the least bit intimidated at all; i guess that showed.
i want to see this nurse get what she is due.
never, ever heard from her again but did get a thank you card from her dtr about saving her mom's life....obviously that was not the case but boy, i'm glad i was there......imagine what would have happened if she was alone w/the pt and this happened. as so many nurses and cna's told me, God sent me as her angel. i'll tell you, i kept on reliving the events for sev'l months-it's a horrible thing to witness.
i'll get to see her wednesday but obviously won't be able to talk w/her. lovely,lovely woman.
after he leaves, i'll putter until visiting hours for tiff.
hope everyone has a great day.
