- side effect, overdose
I have a very bizarre question. Sparing the details: i was inadvertantly given epi 1:1000 through IV. the medic thought they were giving me morphine, but due to drugs being switched i was given epi 1:1000. i am requesting my chart, however i have been feeling chest pain since incident. to be noted I had extreme symptoms of epi overdose upon administration. do i have a right to pursue this against the city and their medics? it should also be noted that the drugs were switched illegally, is under investigation, and felony charges are pending. any information is extremely helpful. thanks
