Bill Page fainted at home and his personal physician admitted him to the local hospital for examination. While in the hospital he developed aspiration pneumonia and was placed in ICU for treatment. He was fully lucid and non terminal.
His family took shifts staying with him so he was not alone while in the hospital. He was lucid, mentally balanced, calm and in control of himself.
Late Saturday evening a nurse attempted for two hours to insert an IV line into his arm. Finally Bill told the nurse to just stop as she was only hurting him with her poking. The nurse refused and she also refused to find another person with more experience to do the insertion. The nurse also attempted intimidation by telling Bill and his daughter that maybe they should be withdrawing all medical care, including oxygen which Bill did need as he had a recent diagnosis of COPD if he refused to allow the nurse to continue poking him.
There was no attending physician at the hospital that night.
His daughter, Barbara Page finally sought help within the hospital leaving her father alone for under 15 minutes. When she returned the nurses in the unit told her that they had to inject her father with double doses of Morphine and Haldol. Haldol is considered a chemical straight jacket and carries an increased risk of death in senior citizens.
The nursing staff had also called other family members and told them to come to the hospital as their father was dying. This was a shock to Barbara as her father was doing just fine when she went to seek help.
Bill Page had no medical condition warranting the use of either Morphine or Haldol. The staff, Bill and his daughter knew that in a few hours his physician would be there in the hospital and there was no great rush for what the nurse was attempting to do. It could have waited as far as Bill and Barbara knew. The nurse refused to tell either of them what the IV was for.
Bill Page died from an overdose of Morphine and Haldol.
