I had emergency surgery for small bowel blockage due to lesions from a previous stomach surgery. After I made a complaint of sitting in my own diahrrea for 2 hours, my head nurse, Dan took acception to my complaining and he then,along with a few other young nurses and apprenticing Dr's proceeded to give me morphine which myself, a caregiver and daughter asked them not to give me.that in turn caused NMS!!!
