In pre-op on 4/17/17 prior to my hip replacement surgery, an RN with obviously no knowledge of standard of care procedures to reduce nerve damage when starting an IV, pierced my vein and went through the median nerve causing permanent nerve damage. My veins are big and don't move and in my entire life, no one has ever needed a second attempt until 4/17/17. If only Doctors Hospital assessed their nurses' skill sets in advance of allowing them to perform invasive procedures on patients. As a result of Doctors Hospital not prioritizing patient safety and "do no harm," I have permanent nerve damage and muscle weakness resulting in numbness, tingling, and pain in the first 3 fingers of my left hand and palm. I walked out of Doctors Hospital with a perfect right hip and a permanently damaged hand. You've been warned.
