What should be even more shocking is that instead of recognizing and easily TESTING for severe hypoglycemia, this silly incompetent nurse actually called the parent to come down when seconds count! If a severe reaction is occuring, give simple sugars and/or activate EMS. It's not rocket science. I'm lucky that I work with some of the best nurses in the field at my job (I am not a nurse, my background is microbiology and immunology). But 90% of them cannot grasp, let alone manage, T1DM.
