Penicillin Allergy.jpg

A nurse intervenes at an operation to check for a possible allergy to penicillin before starting to administer penicillin. Despite the surgeon’s protests, she insists to take the time to check because the information on the intake forms are unclear. It is found that the patient is indeed allergic to penicillin! The nurse has saved the day, but it took bravery to overrule the doctor.
