I have ONE listed food allergy - guess what they just served me for breakfast..
So from day one, that little notation has been on every menu, every tray of food they've given me. In big black letters, all caps - ALLERGY: ALL HONYDEW, BANANANA

I'm allergic to honeydew. Supposedly it extends to bananas and other melons as well, but honeydew melon is the one that makes my throat swell, etc. It's not a 'sensitivity' or 'dislike', it's an allergy.

So they bring in a bowl of canned tropical fruit for breakfast. I've had it before, it's never had anything unususual in it. Usuually just pineapple and grapes.

But today, there were 2 big chunks of honeydew melon at the bottom, one of which I bit into - that's how I knew what it was. Meaning too, the other fruit in the bowl had touched the honeydew, so that's contaminated too.

So I took the menu out to the nurse and told her, she acted like she didn't really understand what a food allergy is and told me it's okay to take one of my own Benadryl. Haven't heard a word from anyone since.

I took the Benadryl, which is contraindicated due to the heart medication I'm taking. My face feels cold, I'm a little dizzy, my tongue is tingly and I'm getting a headache. My arms feel kind of numb.

I saved 2 pieces of the honeydew in one of their plastic pill cups, just in case... I don't know, just in case.

If the damn melon doesn't kill me, can I sue these idiots?

When damage control arrives, what should I say?

Yea I second that and I work in a hospital. Too many idiots working the floor but the cafeteria should be the ones you go after, especially if they have been notified of your allergy.

Actually they bring me my own tray to my room, with my name on it.. along with the menu and allergy notation.

Seriously, call a lawyer? Would anyone actually give a rat's ass on Thanksgiving?

That happened to my mother a few years ago. She swelled up like a balloon and the skin on her arms and neck looked bruised for a week.


I need to get out of here before they kill me.

For the first time since I've been here, my tray was just whisked out of the room like it had wings.

Usually it sits by the door for and hour or 2 before anyone bothers to move it.

I saved 2 pieces of honeydew, doubt they'd be happy to know that.

I'm looking up lawyers, but nobody answers the phone on Thanksgiving.

Guess I could surprise them and call 911 for myself but I think I'm okay.

I'm pissed though.

This will get the people in the kitchen in trouble.

I wonder if any of them read/speak English?

Re: I have ONE listed food allergy - guess what they just served me for breakfast..
I'm in a hospital outside of Spokane, Washington. It's suppposed to be the best cardiac/internal medicine facility in the area. Having my doubts, though.

Everything here is Catholic.. Sisters of this, Mother of that, Holy holy holy.. Nuns in full formal nun clothes floating up and down the halls speaking softly (I'm Baptist, maybe that's why they're trying to kill me).

Okay so far now they've sent 4 people in to see me.

One assured me that an EpiPen was 5 steps away at the nurse's station. Another took my BP, temp and pulse... then another BP/temp/ pulse check 10 minutes later.

They brought water and made me drink a glass while they watched, extra coffee, brought my regular meds early. Told me the nurse (RN, LPN whatever) will be here to talk with me soon. They put the nurse call button next to me and said 'Hit this if you feel any changes.'

I'm up and dressed in my own clothes. I was going to the exercise room but they told me not to go anywhere until the nurse sees me. They keep trying to see what I'm looking at online. So far, GLP remains hidden.

The second guy checking my vitals asked if I had any special plans for today.

I said "Yes. I'll be double-checking all my food before I touch it."

He wasn't sure whether to laugh or not.

I certainly didn't.

I was recently in the ICU for five days, on watch for a worsening heart condition after a heart attack scare

so what did they bring me for breakfast?

A big steaming plate of BACON

lmfao...

well it is Texas, and as someone joked, they need that repeat business to turn a profit

jk

but seriously, you gotta wonder sometime who decides this stuff

Like my best friend used to say: a hospital is no kinda place for a sick person

Happy Thanksgiving OP, and hope you recover quickly

They keep telling me that I've made amazing progress, but no comment on leaving. They said a month here wouldn't be out of the question, been here 2 weeks, tranferred from a different hospital where I spent 7 days in ICU.

I could leave against doctor's orders, but I'd end up back in the hospital probably. My heart is messed up. So I feel like my options are limited for the time being.

Ahahaha, thank you for making me laugh. They've brought me bacon a few times too. No added salt allowed, but they brought a corn dog last week and kielbasa sausage the next day. I said I don't eat things shaped like that. Gak.

But they overcompensate for the tasteless food by giving me lots of sugary foods. I don't want sugar, so I don't eat much.

They say I need to gain weight. I'm down to 108 at 5'3". Sounds okay to me.

I guess a little diabetes is what I need, eh?
