Vitamin K Injection?
66
Mon, 11-09-2009 - 6:57pm

Please help by sharing with me your knowledge, experience, & opinions. My baby is due in 3 weeks. I'm 42. I've decided, with no doubts, against the Hep B shot. However my Midwife & doula have told me to accept the Vitamin K shot because it's not worth the fight. I'm currently working on my Birth Plan & Vaccine Exemption Statement which needs to be notarized & submitted. I'm feeling overwhelmed by everything at this point. What should I do?

Thank you

I did not read ahead so I do not know if anyone else has addressed this but you are the parent, you have rights, among those the right to make medical decisions.

Actually, I was only asking. Just because you have the logo in your signature doesn't mean you are. For all I knew you had the logo there to support nurses. I was asking because you said you were a healthcare provider. Would you care to eat your four letter expletive?

Since you asked, I'm a CMT but I'm not saying that to pretend that I have medical knowledge. I just know what I live with and what I have researched.

>>I'd love to meet you face to face, I'm certain you'd crumple into a little pile and not be able to hold your own without playing dirty in an real life debate. <<

Your debating skills is hardly something I would "crumple into a little pile" about. I think if you pat yourself any harder on the back, you might strain something.

>>I know my crap<<

Okay, but you don't know how to not read too much into what someone is saying.

>>proud of the way I provide care for my patients. So .. for lack ability to use the words I'd like to use .. BITE ME.<<

Lol, hopefully you're nicer to your patients than you are to me. If "bite me" is your bedside manner, then yikes. And btw, patients can and will be far more outspoken with you than I have ever been so hopefully you can curb your anger around them. But if it would help chill you out and make you relax a bit, you are welcome to say what you feel to me in an email. Since you are harboring sour feelings towards me, maybe it would help.

You should calm down and stop jumping to conclusions and blowing up at people, especially when you have completely misunderstood that person.

Would you consider someone telling another poster to "bite " a thoughtful and intelligent reply?

>>so then I'm forced stoop lower than my usual standard. :)<<

So in your mind, two wrongs (in your mind, as I said) make a right. Too bad you stooped to a low level unnecessarily.

Apparently you can't be asked a simple question without severe retaliation, so which hospital do you work at so I can avoid it? I tend to ask nurses questions and I don't want my head to be bitten off for a "thoughtful and intelligent" misunderstanding.

I prefer not to give my location, but I do thank you for the offer. I believe it is a "rule" in the hospital and by voluntarily choosing that hospital, you agree to abide by its rules and that could be the reason. I may talk to my OB when I see her next week and find out about that. This is a bit after the fact but maybe she can shed some light.

Yeah, I can understand why you would not want to disclose your address given some of the inflammatory

What absolute rubbish. You are a paying customer at the hospital. Whereas there are certain procedures and protocols you can at any time not allow certain ones such as vaccines, vit K etc.

At the baby class, we were told that the Hep B vaccine was voluntary, but the Vit K shot was mandatory. Like I said, I'll be asking my doc when I see her next.

you can always refuse care .. the doctor / nurse might not like it .. but you can.
