    I had to have a surgery when I was a baby to correct something. One night while I was sleeping a nurse came in (on her own even though she was meant to be accompanied by another nurse while doing this) and topped up my morphine. The correct dose was o.4 ml but she gave me 4 ml. I actually did die for a little bit there. If she hadn't of bumped my moms bed and woke her up no one would have realized the mistake in time, or rather the "allergic reaction" they tried to play it off as to avoid a lawsuit.

    Yes!

    I was 20 and had a massive kidney stone. I had been in the emergency room six days before, so the nurse accused me of "drug-seeking" and tried to send me home. Before she could get my release paperwork done my kidney started to shut down. My body was basically poisoning itself (with everything the kidneys could no longer process). I went into emergency surgery 15 minutes later.
