I stuck tissues up my nose when I was a toddler, and my mom didn't even know it, until my grandmother noticed I had a "rotten" smell.
Poor baby, and why shouldn't she try to put a rock in her ear? maybe it was a nice rock, and she wanted to be sure it wouldn't get lost.
Kidding aside, darn right you deserve to be pizzed!! Stupid doc should have called an ENT to the ER!! If I were you, once your little angel is OK, write a scathing letter to the hospital. I did that when my son was on peds, not about the nurses, but about the filthy cleaning conditions. I got calls and a letter back. I know it won't change anything, but I felt better, it's cathartic. I did write a nasty letter about my post-partum nurse, who tortured me in my first attempts to breast feed, to the point where I was sobbing. Even my sweet roomate pulled the curtain aside and said, "honey, I can't believe she did that to you!" The other nurses were wonderful, but that one....Grrr. I have also written letters prasing staff when I or my kids or hubby have gotten great care, like after my kidney stone, that particular nurse was FANTASTIC!!!! So was the DOC!!
Obviously this nincompoop did not understand thing one about the stages of growth and development, and I would be sure you recommend the bytch not be assigned to the peds area of the ER again!! How DARE she imply it is the child's fault, a child doesn't know any better! Besides, it was clearly the Daycare's "fault."
Once I got a cal my son had burned his hand at school. He was 5. Catholic school. The day before was Parish day, BBQ games, etc. At the corner of the playground, the STUPID azz janitor dumped the ashes from the huge grill. Well, it LOOKED like dry ash on top, but when my curious son tried to pick up a handful, the coals underneath burned his hand. It blistered and was overall, a pretty mild burn luckily. The school nurse had done exactly the right thing, and my son wasn't even crying when I got him. Was I upset? Of course! But, I KNOW it was an accident, what was done was done, there would be no permanent injury, so all I worried about was my son and his reaction. Silvadene and a bandage for about a week and you would never know it happened. The school nurse and principal were worried I would FLIP out when I arrived at school, but I was just so happy he was OK and they did everything they coud right and all I coud say was please be sure you educate the janitors to never do this again so NO other child ever has to be hurt. My friend joked around, Lin, you could've milked it for free tuition! But come on! To play devil's advocate, it rained at the end of the picnic and I am sure he thought the coals would be put out by the rain. He just used extremely poor judgement in dumping it too close to where the children played at recess. I guess my point is, they showed concern and remorse and did all the right things. The way you were treated in that ER was like it was your fault, and clearly it was just no one's fault. Kids will do things like this, deal with it (not you, that bytch who calls herself an ER nurse!)
It'll be OK Robin. :kiss
