IV site, Such an unnecessary aggravation..!!!

I had a night nurse from HE-- who tried to hook my IV back up after the afternoon nurse had unhooked it at my request and the doctor's verbal okay. I wouldn' allow her to do it, and THEN she proceeded to give me pain medication through the "connection" that was left in my hand after the IV was unhooked. I saw a huge air bubble in it while she was trying to PUSH the medicine into the tubing........I stopped her and said, "There's an air bubble" She informed me that it would dissipate. Well, I still didn't like the looks of things, so I said, "Do I HAVE to have the medication?" She said I could refuse it, to which I replied, "Well, I'm refusing it!!" She left in a huff, but after reading these posts, I feel that I avoided a nasty situation.
