Most of us don’t need to go to med school to know that you probably shouldn’t inject anyone with soup. But a woman has died for that very reason. Ilda Vitor Maciel of Rio de Janeiro died after one of the nurses injected soup into her veins, killing the elderly woman, who was supposed to have a feeding tube instead. According to HispanicallySpeakingNews.com, the family is filing a lawsuit against Santa Casa de Barra Mansa, the very same hospital where the poor old woman also had a stroke.
The woman died just 12 hours after the horrible mistake. “When she injected into a vein, my mother began to beat. I got scared and called the nurse,” said Maciel’s daughter, Ana Ruth Maciel dos Santos.
While the hospital admits that the woman was injected with soup, they don’t believe that this was the cause of death. But the cause of death listed by a doctor at the hospital was a pulmonary embolism. This helps the case of the woman’s family in their lawsuit. We’re not physicians ourselves, but we imagine that it would be fairly difficult to inject someone with soup and then pretend that it had nothing to do with their death. But this poor diagnosis appears to be consistent with the traditions established at a hospital that has already proven itself inadequate.
If you ever consider practicing medicine, please don’t try this with anyone.
