hey OP here, thanks to many of you for suggesting a lawsuit, I'll consider it! Btw, it was at an urgent care and not a real hospital

Umm, clearly OP did deserve it for clumsily breaking their arm in the first place. o.O

My profile pic is Tourette's Guy??? What the hell gave it away?! Some of you seriously need to improve your sarcasm detection skills. Einsteins.

I tried marking my comment as sarcastic with the 'eyes'...but that still wasn't enough. Lots of panties are now twisted. Maybe it's laundry day?

you don't know OP broke it himself. maybe he was in a car wreck, basketball incident, got pushed onto the ground by young punks! you never know! but not everyone with a broken arm got it from being stupid and jumping off the garage.

At the moment you have successfully offended 106 teenie boppers and lower percentiles TourettesGuy. Do you want what's behind door number two or the "mystery" suit case?

She acted unprofessionally and caused op a significant amount of unnecessary pain as well as a brutal injury (bone disconnect). more than enough for a lawsuit. She at the very least deserves to be fired on the spot.

That makes not one bit of sense. What exactly would you sue for?

The bones being completely separated means that they have to be painfully reset, it also increases the chances of it not healing properly, having to be broken again, then getting yet another cast. Suing the nurse would cover the cost of the the bone being set as well as any future medical bills. Hope this helps.

Yeah, I for once agree as well. I don't like it when people want to sue the makers of ice cube machines because they falsely advertised it as 'cubes' instead of 'discs'... But in this scenario, it's perfectly plausible to at least sue for medical reimbursement! That woman had absolutely no bedside manner, and to be honest, would cause a lot of people not to go when they really do have too, for fear of the personnel! I've had a doctor bitch at me (for good purpose) because I broke my ankle and waited two days to go in because I honestly thought I just sprained it. But if it was her I was looking forward too, I'd of not gone at all.

@#109 Suppose you have a barely working shattered iPhone. One day, before you had the chance to get it fixed, I lift it up & drop it one foot above concrete. Then it completely stop working..... Can you still claim that I didn't break your phone? It was only one foot above the ground right? No. Your phone was working before, but my actions caused unnecessary and avoidable damage. Now YOU have to suffer the extra hassle because of what I did. Same story with OP's nurse. OP's arm was in pretty bad condition but had the potential to heal. Except OP's nurse caused unnecessary and avoidable damage which OP now has to suffer through. Lawsuit it is!

@#140 You know, the point did a backflip and smacked you square in the face, but you STILL missed it. I'm done trying to explain obvious things to oblivious people.

fired? suspended? I think jail might be more like it! AT THE VERY LEAST loss of license. not to mention the monetary compensation I'd expect op to receive...

51 - The nurse is being paid to help people who are in pain. She caused a huge amount of completely unnecessary pain in addition to what OP was already feeling because she was in a bad mood or something. Seeking compensation for that on OP's part is completely reasonable.

Broken bones are much more fragile than a healthy, strong bone in it's proper place. If anything, she further damaged his already broken arm. Medical malpractice is a sue-able offense, stop commenting everywhere that you think it's not. The law is the law, dickhead.

I know the fml says nurse but the people who perform the x-rays aren't nurses. They're radiographers or x-ray techs. Either way, completely not how a patient should be treated

She didn't have to twist your arm!! That's so insensitive! I understand your pain (I've had to endure some painful X-rays for broken bones myself) but she definitely should have been more caring and compassionate and not cause you any more unnecessary pain!! It's bad enough as it is!

Personally, I'd go for the ovaries. Right in the baby maker.

It's an extremely common misconception I see for people/patients to generalize almost any female in the medical profession as a "nurse". Frustrating for those of us in the medical field, because different job titles delineate different training and a completely different scope of practice. There are phlebotomists, Rad techs, CNAs, LVNs, RNs, FNPs, RDs, PTs, etc, and often the general public uses the term loosely, blaming us for things not in our scope of practice or even giving us undue credit that a different specialist deserved.
