If she's found guilty, she should be injected with an AIDS-infected needle and see what it feels like. What a dumbass.

Maybe she was just trying that old coffee commercial trick.

Anncr: "Let's see if anyone notices..."

Patient: "Mmm. This is good medicine."

Dude with a bad suit and mic on a stick: "Actually, that's Hep C you feel coursing through your veins."

Patient: "Golly. That's neato! I couldn't even tell!"

/Oh, and yes, I hope each of the 6,000 victims gets to spend an unmonitored hour with her, no questions asked.

The penalty:

1 syringe filled with a culture of the Ebola virus
3 syringes contaminated with MRSA
4 syringes of sodium pentathol
1 syringe with a lethal dose of heroin
91 syringes filled with saline.

Put all 100 syringes in identical boxes, shuffle them around so that no one knows which syringe is contained in a given box. The offender is required to select one syringe daily until they die. If they refuse to select one, the jailer administers one at random.

Holy shiat, my heart goes out to your family. As far as the snarky replies go, this is fark and I think the general census is that this person is a horrible animal, the snarky replies are just a way of dealing with something so horrible with so little reason.

I seriously don't understand what goes through someones mind, I can't even figure out how this makes sense. She was stealing needles with painkiller in them and putting back dirty ones, how the hell did she manage to do it SIX THOUSAND TIMES before someone noticed patients weren't getting a dose/full dose. Further more there has to be a million better ways of stealing drugs when you work in a hospital (wathc Nurse Jackie). shiat like this just astounds me.

patients will sue the hospital, not her. then the hospital will up all their prices to pay for the malpractice insurance premiums. then only the five richest kings of europe will be able to afford healthcare.

it works out really well.

i'd like to know how she ever got the position in the first place.

every job I apply to requires strict background checks.

especially in a hospital.. I don't know for sure, but I would think they would test for hepatitis

And 'surgery tech'?? thats a well paid responsible position. You have to know what your doing to work in that capacity.
 
2009-07-09 03:32:15 PM  

Haff: 6000 people!!! holy christ on a stick thats a hell of a drug habit.


Since this is old news around here (guess I missed my chance for a greenlight), the 6,000 is basically anyone who may have gone through those areas of the hospital at the time. Since she didn't drop off 6,000 needles, the number of possible infections is MUCH, MUCH smaller. Still, if you have to get tested and go through the anxiety of waiting, not fun.

What's a class action going to do? She's a drug addict and probably doesn't have too much money. This is one of the few times I don't mind a little vigilante justice and/or corporal punishment to be given by the victims.

People, take note. This is the idea of a genius. I, for one, would proudly support this method of sentencing. I have but one suggestion. Let the bats be infected with rabies and then let's make her go through the rabies treatment for EACH bat that has been inserted into her anus. We can then let her face PETA for the animal abuse since it was her anus the bats heads had been in. Also, when the bat treatment has been completed, let the first person infected take his time shoving his shiat encrusted over-sized boot into her vag.

Take away one of the syringes filled with saline. Replace it with a syringe filled with clowns that will gouge her eyes out and skullfark her while she's still alive, all while giggling and blowing party favors and riding around on little unicycles.

Oh I know, I was just playing out a tired MEME to cover my freaking out over the whole thing. He was out of town with his parents and the doctors asked that he be brought back right away because of the level of interaction she had with his medicine according to his charts.

She wasn't after the needles, per se.. she was after the drugs. She injected the drug into herself, refilled the syringe with saline so it wouldn't be detected, and left it for use on the patient.

I don't understand why she's only being charged with product tampering.. shouldn't this be attempted murder?

And even furthermore, it means she was getting high while at work and prepping people for surgery. I would also be worried about the consequences of mistakes in the surgery prep due to her being stoned out of her gourd on her patients' drugs. Hep C is treatable. Deaths on the operating table are not.

I seem to recall a blurb on the news saying they knew about the hepatitis but that does not automatically disqualify you from the job. The thing that changed this story was the drug use.

We need to bring back the whole exile thing. Just take her to the woods and leave her there, with a note about how returning to modern civilization will result in a prompt bullet to the head.

Maybe also tattoo "EXILED PSYCHOPATH" on her forehead so any attempts to sneak back in will eventually fail.

Story of how profit driven clinics in Las Vegas did it.

FTA
"The story just keeps getting worse from Las Vegas where a group-owned clinic reused syringes and failed to properly clean equipment for colonoscopies.

In the drive for profits, many medical facilities are consolidating and reusing equipment, but those cost-saving procedures may have put thousands in jeopardy of contracting the infectious blood disease hepatitis C, hepatitis B and HIV."

40,000 patients needed to be tested in that case.

Evidence gathering needed; that will be one of the outcomes of all the testing. If she infected anyone, she'll get some sort of reckless assault. If someone dies, she'll get negligent homicide. If she KNEW... then it is attempted murder.

Technically speaking, I'm not sure this would violate the Eighth Amendment. Yes, it is unusual, but cruel? I dunno, I say let the punishment fit the crime, and exposing 6000 people to Hep C is some seriously unhinged shiat.

Since you gotta have both elements, such a thing might actually fly, if judges were allowed a bit more creativity in their sentencing.

Ummm....isn't that what PANTS are for? I mean, the Bacon Flowchart explicitly states that pants must be worn when cooking bacon, so wouldn't it make sense that they should be worn when using other sharp objects?

Out of curiosity, what sharp object is used to cook bacon?

I generally prefer to use a sharp knife when preparing bacon for cooking. It cuts better than a dull, rusty spork.

I'm still confused.
Open bacon package.
Put bacon in pan.
Cook.

Eat bacon with a sharp knife?


Well, I actually buy bacon and cut it myself. I like it a bit thicker than what comes in the store bought packages. So in my case a sharp knife is needed.

CleverGuy81: patients will sue the hospital, not her. then the hospital will up all their prices to pay for the malpractice insurance premiums. then only the five richest kings of europe will be able to afford healthcare.

it works out really well.


Thats when the hospital counter sues the nurse and gets their malpractice insurance premiums to rise and pretty much screws over every other nurse who has to pay it. The hospital then cuts a bunch of nurses from the role and leads to more screw ups. More nurses go from being sued because they were swamped with work or just quit. They employ a few nurses from abroad to make up the slack and the administrator gets a nice $100,000 bonus for cutting staffing requirements. The hospital almost never has to payout.

I'm thinking that she did it herself. She'd pull the painkiller syringes off the prep tray and swap them with the saline-filled ones she'd already used. Then she'd administer them during the procedure, or just walk away.

Perhaps she was injecting at work to cut that loop time down. She's obviously not careful about her needle use, since she's got Hepatitis C already, but who knows.

Yeah, I was all >:o about that, too. Luckily, the better article addressed that point as well:

"Rose's Dr. Lefkowits said it's possible patients who received saline instead of Fentanyl were in more pain than they should have been after surgery, but only for a short period. Nurses check a patient's pain level every 15 minutes and would have administered another dose of painkiller if a patient still had pain."

I'm against, for a variety of reasons, a government killing its own citizens, but there comes a time when the likely maximum possible contribution a person can make to society is grossly outweighed by the destruction the person has caused. This approaches a crime against humanity.

Lock her up forever, no possibility of parole. Don't throw away the key--we're going to need it to get in and begin human testing for Hep C cures, along with any other drug needing human testing. She doesn't get to say no. Her life should now, by mandate of the people, be completely devoted to trying to mitigate the damage she's caused.

Another compelling example of why legalizing all substances (excepting antibiotics and their ilk) is necessary. Let these idiots imbibe what they will. Only laws impacting use should be limited to taking down those whose use gets in the way of someone else (then mandatory 10yrs).

Examine closely: A single dose of heroin costs approx. six cents to manufacture. How much is going to be spent cleaning up this mess and dealing with all the lawsuits and future medical care?

If we subsidized the manufacture of the real deal and let her buy it OTC, the only cost entailed would be in hauling her frothy mouthed corpse from between some toliet and wall.

Lock her up, give her assault charges, and murder charges if/when someone dies, for each case.
Maybe give her an option to reduce her sentence by 1/3 if she agrees to testing dangerous possible cures.

I'm sure she had no intention of giving Hep C to the patients, but she certainly knew she was depriving them of painkillers. As such, she knew her action was doing others harm.

From the much better artcile linked by elzod:

For starters, Parker wasn't involved in some of the surgeries linked to the hepatitis C cases, said Ned Calonge, the state's chief medical officer. And authorities didn't know she had swapped syringes containing Fentanyl with her dirty ones until she confessed during a state health department interview in late June, he said.

She was fired in April, so there's about two months where patients could've been walking around with Hep C and getting sicker all the time. Here's how they caught her...

Rose Medical Center fired Parker on April 22, after she tested positive for narcotics. She was tested because a co-worker found her in an operating room to which she was not assigned.

If everything in the article is accurate, then the employees of the hospital she used to work for did everything right. She's just a sneaky scum bag.

The placebo effect is incredibly powerful.

I'm guessing these were uncapped and used to draw up meds for use prior to surgery, and were therefore already "opened". The only way to tell really would be visible blood in the works.

A self limiting potential (most would get bored and seek treatment (eventually), some would retire themselves from the target pool, some would, like drunks, cause accidents and be locked up). We would still be paying out a pittance compared to the current system of, one the one hand, subsidizing illegal producers and sellers (all we do is use law enforcement to drive up the price) and, on the other, locking up mere users or making it necessary for biatches like this one to fark with others when it should have been possible for her to go into the Seven Eleven and pick up a bag of Red Rock for a couple bucks.

I'm also wondering why it took so long - really, six THOUSAND patients? - for someone to figure out something was wrong. Since the pain meds were being replaced with saline solution, you'd think a nurse or a doctor would've noticed a pattern of the needle contents NOT working before they got to 6,000.


That would make sense if she stole all 6000 syringes in whole cases. if she takes a few from here, a few from there, it might go un-noticed for quite some time.

What about the 6,000 patients after surgery who DIDN'T get any painkillers before they woke up. That is another crime right there. Those people can sue for pain and suffering now too. I guess they would biatch until they got some, but man, talk about an agonizing few minutes or longer!?

hej: The story is a bit light on details, so maybe I'm missing something here. How did she get people to inject patients with used needles? I thought items which were supposed to be sterile were kept sealed until use. Perhaps somebody 'in the field' can clarify for me.


I used to set up saline solutions for an OR, and I had access to the needles. They don't necessarily come pre-packaged with the solution inside. My father's chemo, for example, is mixed on site by a pharmacy technician.

Farkwaddle: lokiminio: HOLY FARK! Tie her down and let all 6000 people shove a bat up her ass.

People, take note. This is the idea of a genius. I, for one, would proudly support this method of sentencing. I have but one suggestion. Let the bats be infected with rabies and then let's make her go through the rabies treatment for EACH bat that has been inserted into her anus. We can then let her face PETA for the animal abuse since it was her anus the bats heads had been in. Also, when the bat treatment has been completed, let the first person infected take his time shoving his shiat encrusted over-sized boot into her vag.


Im not quite sure your thinking of the bats he was thinking of. If Im not mistaken Im assuming those to be baseball bats.

Many thanks to the posters offering extra info and articles to fill out the story. Every bit helps to make sense of this mess.

lukelightning - The placebo effect is incredibly powerful. I saw a speech by an expert in the neurobiology and psychology of the placebo effect who was himself a burn victim who has had 75% of his skin replaced after a fire attest to it (as well as elucidate as to how the placebo effect might function in the brain, etc.)

I sure as hell hope the placebo effect was good and strong in each and every patient, but my gut tells me a few people must've noticed the difference and were the worse for it.

airsupport - In this version of the story, she implies the blame lies partly with the hospital for "leaving stuff laying around (new window)".

The article also says, "The former surgical technician who investigators suspect may have infected at least 10 people with hepatitis C will not be released to her parents before her next court appearance."

HOW old is this woman? Unless teenagers can be surgery techs, I cannot imagine anyone thinking a person old enough to have that job should be released from jail into the care of Mommy and Daddy. I know it must've been her lawyer who suggested it, but still...

This case is sounding more and more like an episode of "Law and Order." Five bucks says we'll see some version of this story in the fall.

Again, there's a good chance that there weren't 6,000 people who only got saline, just that there are 6,000 people who had surgery while she was employed there.

It depends on how often she stole the fentanyl syringes , whether she was addicted during her entire tenure, etc.

Aha! If we posit that at the most, she might be off by a factor of 5, then there are 100 possible infections (not including up to 100 times that people were in agonizing pain for up to 15-20 minutes because she's a evil cow). This doesn't cover any OTHER farkups that she might have committed under the influence, but at least it's less of a "holy fark" number than 6000.

tweekster: NoLiving: War on drugs!

What does this have to do with the war on drugs?


This has EVERYTHING to do with the War On (some) Drugs.

If she was able to buy her painkillers legally, she would have been able to fund it easily off her hospital income. The same way smokers generally have no trouble funding a several-pack-a-day habit. Morphine/Heroin is freaky cheap to make.

But seeing as it's illegal, she had to pull this crap to get her fix. Legalized, and these 6000 people wouldn't have a serious issue to deal with right now.

darkscout: She's a drug addict and probably doesn't have too much money.


It's amazing how farking ignorant people like you can be. Because she uses drugs, she must be a failure in life. "Winners don't use drugs" and all that. Except she's working as a surgery tech at a hospital. Last time I checked, that was a pretty decent-paying job. So while she's probably not rich, she's probably comfortably middle-class.

ha-ha-guy: Yeah, I doubt we'd legalize heroin anyways. That's some nasty shiat.


So you support the violent gangs in our streets that distribute it, and you want people to have to pull stupid stunts like this to get their fix?

Oh, you're one of those idiots that thinks that sense we ban something, it magically goes away. Sense we banned heroin, we no longer have any problem with people getting addicted to it, and this article is just an illusion?

People will always do drugs, and we have to choose how we will allow the supply to meet the demand. You advocate robbery, violent gangs, and scary stories like this article. I advocate peaceful private business, as violence and robbery is probably not a good thing for society.

biggestdog420: i'd like to know how she ever got the position in the first place.

every job I apply to requires strict background checks.

especially in a hospital.. I don't know for sure, but I would think they would test for hepatitis

And 'surgery tech'?? thats a well paid responsible position. You have to know what your doing to work in that capacity.


She probably got hooked on drugs while she worked there and that lead to her infection.

Gordian Cipher: cranky: Further more there has to be a million better ways of stealing drugs when you work in a hospital (wathc Nurse Jackie).

And even furthermore, it means she was getting high while at work and prepping people for surgery. I would also be worried about the consequences of mistakes in the surgery prep due to her being stoned out of her gourd on her patients' drugs. Hep C is treatable. Deaths on the operating table are not.


How do you conclude this? She could have been taking them home and swapping previously prepared ones.

itsneat: http://www.injuryboard.com/national-news/reusing-syringes-%E2%80%9Cco​m​mon-pract i ce%E2%80%9D-at-las-vegas-clinics.aspx?googleid=29862

Story of how profit driven clinics in Las Vegas did it.

FTA
"The story just keeps getting worse from Las Vegas where a group-owned clinic reused syringes and failed to properly clean equipment for colonoscopies.

In the drive for profits, many medical facilities are consolidating and reusing equipment, but those cost-saving procedures may have put thousands in jeopardy of contracting the infectious blood disease hepatitis C, hepatitis B and HIV."

40,000 patients needed to be tested in that case.


/how is that profit driven healthcare treating you?
//hope the victims of that twisted skank are okay.


Although this was actually a lesser risk. The syringes were clean, the culprit was the bottles of medicine. Stick needle in patient. Stick needle in bottle to get more medicine. Stick needle in patient. When you're done with the patient you need to chuck the bottle, they weren't.

If it weren't for the war on drugs she wouldn't have done this.

Anyway, may I suggest a different punishment:

Life in prison without parole. However, she is absolutely forbidden painkillers of any type.

Just got this a few minutes ago in an e-mail:

Statement from Ken Feiler, president & CEO, Rose Medical Center


Our staff continues to speak with patients who are calling our call center about the screening process and to answer any questions. We are getting about 300 calls per day and have heard from Quest Diagnostics that about 800 people have gone in for testing at their labs.

After speaking with experts in hepatitis C and infection control, we have been cautioned that we WILL see positive results from this screening because there are between 1% and 3% of the general population that is infected with hepatitis C - and as many as HALF do not know it. While we fully expect to see positive test results, it may take months before state and CDC investigators can determine if any of the patients who test positive were actually infected by the terminated employee.

We are confident state and CDC investigators can sort out the cause of the exposures eventually - but right now, proper patient care is our ONLY priority. In the interim, we will make sure every person who tests positive is evaluated by their primary care doctor or specialist in hepatitis, and Rose will pay for appropriate treatment.

Today, we also would like to make absolutely clear: The Rose Medical Center employee health nurse spoke with Ms. Parker at 7:30 a.m. on Oct. 20 for about 20 minutes prior to the new employee orientation. Our nurse told Ms. Parker about her hepatitis C results and counseled the new employee to see her doctor. Our nurse offered to make an appointment for Ms. Parker at the Rose Family Medicine clinic which would be a free visit. And the nurse counseled Ms. Parker about healthcare precautions to prevent the transmission of the disease at work.

It is important to note that Rose physicians and staff have always strived to ensure fail-safe processes and tools to keep our medications secure. Among these are state-of-the-art, computerized, locked drug cabinets that only authorized people with passwords can access, controlled access to sensitive areas, etc. But after being notified in June of a possible exposure, our Quality and Clinical staffs began reviewing all processes in our surgical and other patient care areas. We also invited State Health to come to Rose to help recommend improvements. Together with our physicians, Rose in June reiterated its policy regarding narcotics - that NOTHING is to be drawn or laid out in surgical or other areas prior to having the patient in the room or without direct and constant physician supervision of those drugs. We have zero tolerance for anything less.

Bullshiat.

6000 doses of Fenytal? No way would she get that without stealing. Assuming she would somehow go "legal" in the face of all the money she'd have to spend, as well as endangering her job (who wants a drug addict, even if "legal" as a Surgeon Tech??) is a stretch, but guessing in any direction is nothing more than a strawman, and worthless in an argument.

Her MySpace page reveals her obsession with needles. I would suggest that the "War On Drugs" has absolutely zero to do with it, and her psychological issues and addiction to thousands of dollars of drugs (legal or otherwise) had far more to do with it.

2009-07-09 07:33:17 PM  
Again folks, this isn't 6,000 needles, could be as few as 10 actual cases of infection. Let's say she's been doing this for a month. You come to the hospital in April? You get any type of injection? Guess what, you get to be the next contestant on Fox's newest reality show.


So again, its not like 6,000 cases of pain meds were saline. The hospital just cannot tell which of the dozen (made up number) of injections were Hep. infused Saline. My guess is this was a rare occurrence (maybe directed at cases she knew she could get away with whatever those might be), but the hospital is going to cast a wide net, so you got a shot while she was working, you get tested.

She didn't take 6000 doses of Fentanyl.

Do you have any realization of what an insanely large amount of drugs that is? KING KONG couldn't go through that amount of a drug that is 20X stronger than morphine.

What happened, was that they didn't know which of the patients may have been exposed, so they're testing all of them.

Simple, she would have a saline-filled used syringe already in her pocket (or in another convenient spot), and would just swap it with the unused syringe immediately before administering the "medicine" to the patient.

I'm a surgical tech and what this chick did is insane. This type of behavior not only put those patients at risk for Hep C from the syringes, but she also put them at risk for a nosocomial infection and possibly death. There is no way she had a proper sterile field maintained if she broke it to swap syringes-that is what can cause infections for the patient on the table. The anaesthesiologist comes into the or once the the surgical tech sets the room up for surgery, scrubs in, and then sets the instruments up. Usually the anaesthesiologist carries their medications/syringes with them in a locked box, that is only unlocked when they are preparing the medications for surgery and during surgery.
This is starting to get long winded, but does that answer the questions?

I hope that offender gets a double-tap to the head. People who harm others like this should not be sharing the planet with us.

redcliffe: Hep C is actually curable with the current drugs if treated early. There was a recent report released on it. Apparently it's just a different treatment plan than they used to use, but it completely eliminates the virus.


Depends on the genotype of the virus. Genome 1, most common in North America, only has a 15-25% cure rate after 18 months of interfuron (sp.) with a anti-retroviral. Some doctors won't jump to adding in the anti viral unless a past treatment has failed.

With early detection, say now, they could run I believe the PCR test to spot antibodies and start throwing doses of anti-virals around. It would suck for the patients but may save them 20 years from now.

And to pinual, even if you pick up Hep C at birth from a blood transfusion, you can have some beers in your twenties, get wasted a few times, and make it to at least 30 without any problems. Just a few needles, about a year or so, to make sure things are running alright. We'll keep fingers crossed that your family doesn't even have to think about that though.

sboyle1020: What the HELL is wrong with people? How does this even cross someones mind?

I've taken the liberty of bolding and underlining your mistaken assumption.

I'd say shoot her in the head with all speed, but I'm not sure there's an organ there to damage.

Unixfreak: What kind of evil, vengeful man could do something so horrible to people they didn't even know? What kind of cold, calculating guy could think of this and have it on his conscience?

the arrest of a surgery technician accused of swapping out her dirty syringes for ones filled with painkiller meant for patients.

oh, it was a chick. Makes more sense now.



Women tend to be allowed "Permanent Teenager" status in our society and that grace leaves them at a moral disadvantage most of their lives. Certainly they can mature and become adults with the mental abilities of adults, but many just remain spoiled little arrogant "Teen Brain" type girls for the rest of their horrible little destructive lives.

Most women that read FARK are getting oodles of years of wisdom from reading the life-failure examples of the news of current humanity in terms of both negative and positive examples. Unfortunately, there are those out there who read FARK daily and never mature no matter how many folks state "That person was CRAAAAAZY" and that is a horror in itself.

Leashlaw: I'm guessing these were uncapped and used to draw up meds for use prior to surgery, and were therefore already "opened". The only way to tell really would be visible blood in the works. I feel really bad for the folks who had to endure procedures while improperly medicated since she replaced their drugs with saline.


You don't know the half of it.

Family Claims Wide-Awake Surgery Led to Minister's Suicide
Tuesday, April 10, 2007

http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,265001,00.html (pops)
Sizemore, a former coal miner and Baptist minister, was admitted to Raleigh General Hospital on Jan. 19, 2006, for surgery aimed at diagnosing the cause of abdominal pain, according to a lawsuit filed March 13 in Raleigh County Circuit Court.

An anesthesiologist and nurse anesthetist who worked for Raleigh Anesthesia Associates gave Sizemore paralyzing drugs to prevent his muscles from jerking and twitching during the surgery, the complaint alleges. But it says they failed to give him general anesthesia to render him unconscious until 29 minutes into the procedure - 16 minutes after the first cut into his abdomen.

Sizemore was awake for the procedure, but couldn't speak or move. Worse, the complaint charges, Sizemore was never told that he hadn't been properly anesthetized, and was tormented by doubts about whether his memories were real.

The lawsuit, filed against Raleigh Anesthesia Associates by two of his daughters, goes on to say that in the two weeks after his surgery, Sizemore became a different person. He couldn't sleep, refused to be left alone, suffered nightmares and complained people were trying to bury him alive.


// Probably another junkie nurse was stealing the drugs when this happened too.
// Maybe not the anesthesiologist or the nurse (both equally logical suspects), but perhaps the meds were swapped out with saline by another person in the surgical supplies zone.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fentanyl (pops)

Fentanyl (fentanyl citrate) - brand names include Actiq, Duragesic, Fentora, and Sublimaze[2] - is a synthetic primary μ-opioid agonist commonly used to treat post-operative and chronic breakthrough pain. It is approximately 100 times more potent than morphine,[3] with 100 micrograms of Fentanyl equivalent to 10 mg of morphine and 75 mg of pethidine (meperidine) in analgesic activity.[4] It has an LD50 of 3.1 milligrams per kilogram in rats, 0.03 milligrams per kilogram in monkeys, and an undetermined milligrams per kilogram in humans.

Therapeutic use

Intravenous fentanyl is extensively used for anesthesia and analgesia, most often in operating rooms and intensive care units. It is often administered in combination with a benzodiazepine, such as midazolam, to produce procedural sedation for endoscopy, cardiac catheterization, oral surgery, etc.
Additionally, Fentanyl is often used in cancer therapy and other chronic pain management due to its effectiveness in relieving pain. There is no known opioid better than Fentanyl in reducing cancer pain, which makes it the first choice for use in cancer patients.


// [sarcasm] Such a lovely woman, so moral in mind and soul. [/sarcasm]

// Because there is nothing so wonderful as firstly being wide awake, but totally paralyzed while that knife slices your guts and THEN finding out later that amoral-sociopath pure-jackass junkie-nurse infected you with Hepatitis C (which destroys your liver) because she was shooting up with your surgical anesthesia medication for a no-cost high.

// She needs to be shot up with a surgical-level of Fentanyl then tossed into an industrial metal shredder or fed to piranhas. After all, if she cannot feel any pain during the horrible death, how can the punishment be "cruel or unusual"?

Obviously, she is both sick and evil.
Just to answer the question of "what does the anesthesiologist do if his regular fentanyl is replaced with water?"

So, I've drawn up one syringe of fentanyl, and have more sealed in a box. I don't know it, but the syringe is water. So I've given a bit of it preoperatively. I probably don't know that it's water, because I've also given midazolam preoperatively, and the patient is a bit woozy (but less than they should be). I start getting the impression that the patient has a high tolerance.
I give most of the rest just before starting, and put the patient to sleep. When the surgeon starts cutting, the patient is asleep (and won't remember anything), but the blood pressure and heart rate go through the roof. I start to believe that the patient has an extremely high tolerance, give the rest of the fentanyl, open up more, and give a lot of that. Now I start seeing it affect the patient.
I now have an incorrect understanding of the patient's drug tolerance, and am giving higher doses than I would if I knew. If it's a long case, I'm probably assessing enough vital signs that the patient wakes up at a reasonable narcotic level - I just have no idea why the initial blood pressures were through the roof. The patient has no idea anything happened. If it's a short case, I may be too low (and have to give a lot of narcotics right after the case) or too high (and the patient takes a long time waking up).
At any rate: this is clearly extremely dangerous, but the patients probably wouldn't know anything (aside from the risk of Hep C, heart attack, stroke, etc). If it happened twice to the same doctor or nurse, they should probably start putting two and two together; the first time it happened they probably wouldn't realize what was causing the problem.
