Government files discrimination lawsuit rectally...?
 
2012-10-05 01:15:17 PM
Problem was that they had to rule out those who seemed to eager to volunteer.

They get government funding.

It's a reasonable accomodation.

I'm OK with this.

There is bound to be a few people in the world for whom shoving stuff up other people's butts is recreation. They just need to find them and add them to their association.

Some frat in Tennessee has the expertise and would be happy to do rectal "medicine" especially as a "community service." They're quite practiced at setting a drip line. Don't believe that lawyer.

It can be difficult to start an IV during a seizure.

Why is this on the Politics tab? Are Admins trying to get a 'Repeal the ADA' discussion going?

If this kid can get epileptics to the promised land of speedier care, then she will be kind of a Grand Mal Moses.

I like to shove various things up my own butt, however, I am sure as hell not going to shove things up other people's butts. Seizure on bro.

Anything that can be at least transiently tied to the government is political.

I recall a Zappa song called the Illinois Enema Bandit...might be shot for him to get an honest job giving back to the community...a real win-win for everybody.

I don't know if that song was based on a true event, I've asked everyone I know from Illinois...they act as if I am the one with an issue. They should know their state history...

I have clients on diastat rectal, clonazepam po and midazolam nasal spray. The biggest problem isn't administration- it's securing the meds. This is valium. They probably don't want the liability. Even if they had diastat, by the time they found the narc keys the ambulance would be there.

Midazolam nasal spray is fantastic for interruping a seizure. Too bad it is nasal versed. Party time!

They may be in trouble from this lawsuit if they are willing to give narcs to other campers. The rectal route is one of the safest- unless you are using Franzia. Then no route is safe.
 
2012-10-05 01:34:17 PM
The suit was filed on behalf of a 17-year-old McHenry County girl

The medication, Diastat AcuDial, comes in a pre-filled syringe with a plastic tip and must be administered through a person's rectum.


Is this parks department taking any applications at the moment? ...

I can't imagine why a youth oriented organization would be hesitant to allow its non-medically trained employees to pull down a minor child's pants and insert something in their anus.

Apparently these assholes don't realize that a rectal administration of drugs is a HEAVILY medically-regulated thing due to quick and easy absorbtion into the bloodstream.

farking morons are going to lose, fast, because the camp likely can't afford an actual qualified doctor to handle that.

People act like they are being compassionate, when the reality is folks just want someone else to wipe the asses of our elderly amd infirm.

I was hospititalized for pnemonia (sp) a couple years back. It got so bad i had the attentive nurse give me an enima. After she asked ifi was feeling better and i told her i felt fine before actually, i was just bored. Didnt see her after that.

True story...or not.

Shouldn't take a doctor. LPNs administer these meds all the time. They just need to report off on their actions to an RN supervisor- who doesn't even have to be on-site.

Like I said, if they are discriminating against all narcs, they are golden. If they just got the heebies about the rectal business, I think they'll lose. In a camp full of handicapped kids the employees are screened and already doing things like changing depends.

I can understand both sides of this argument, and I don't really have a big disagreement with either side. That said, if I had to stick something in a kid's ass to save their life, I'd do it no matter how uncomfortable it made me feel.

Perhaps if the parents signed a waiver for the kids who are "at risk"...?

I dunno, but let me put it this way:

At the girlscout camp I volunteer at, we had a child this year who, if she hit her head IN ANY WAY, we had to call an ambulance so she could go get CAT scanned-She had a super-low platlet disorder, so any blow to the head could cause cerebral hemmoraging. Thankfully, she was in the age range where she knew she needed to tell us if she smacked her head, even if it meant missing a chunk of the camp (I think she was.. 14, 15ish?), which made the whole thing *slightly* less terrifying.
/And she made it until the *last day* until she ran headlong into a dayshade. Argh. She was fine, at least!
//That is nowhere near the most terrifying camp story, though admittedly some of the scarrier ones are from before I began volunteering.

"OK so this last summer I was at the beach working on my tan. It was getting really good. I could have put Leather Mom to shame. I just finished putting on an entire bottle of babby oil when I guess the heat started getting to me. I felt kind of weird...and then things went black. My buddy told me afterwards that I was seizing like a fish flopping around on a hot sidewalk. it must have been extra bad because the spasms were so severe that it produced a condition known to me later as prolapsed anus. That's something you dopn't want to Google, trust me....so anyway, my buddy tells me it looked like a flesh doughnut poking it's way out of my mankini, and he just stood there in shock. I mean what are you going to do, make a fist and then jam it back in my pelvic cavity while I'm doing the shimmy shimmy coco bop in the sand?? Hell no, I mean we're friends but we're not THAT good friends. (Is anyone?!?!) So the real joke here is that you're still reading this and you have a vision of fisting a greased, sandy, prolapsed anus in your head and I WIN!@! Yay!!"

So, do you usually grease your anus before going to the beach with your buddy, or is it just naturally greasy?

Jument: In the butt??? WTF? Why can't they do it with an injectable pen?


Intramuscular injections of that drug don't work. I'm assuming that its the same stuff that we were given to administer to our service users in the event of a seizure that went on for too long. Prolonged seizures can cause brain damage, so the rectal drug can prevent that. I had to administer it on several occasions. We got to practice on the bottom part of a resuscitation doll :-)
 
2012-10-05 02:30:30 PM
I don't blame them. I'd not be administering any seizure medication to a kid either. If you administer the drug and something goes wrong, and you are a medical professional or have received training in said administration, you are liable. The law suit is an inevitability. I think they were probably acting on advice of counsel. The US attorney's probably going to lose this one. They did not say that epileptics couldn't participate in activities, but only that they would call 911 instead of administering drugs.

I realize we live in the land of lawyers and bureaucrats now, not the United States of America, and common sense hopped on the last plane to Costa Rica a few years ago, but...

Wouldn't have made sense to have a nurse on staff that was qualified to handle all this stuff? That and a waiver form stating that "we will have a professional nurse on the premises at all times and they will be available to render medical assistance...blah blah blah...you can't sue them or us if the nurse makes a good faith effort to render aid....so on and and so on. A good lawyer could bullet proof that pretty effectively and if the parent refuses to sign, no camp for kiddy.
 
2012-10-05 02:41:33 PM
Fine, I'll be the first to say it. If an 8 year old is seizing in front of you and you hide behind some policy to protect your legal liability rather than give them their medication, you are scum.
