Brad E. Walton II Brad E. Walton II Friday, March 07, 2014 9:16:42 PM I'm a former EMT, years aftert having my colon removed and my liver transplanted twice due to a genetic disease, I hooked a pump up wrong and infused too much Hydromorphone (Dilaudid) into my system, and narc an saved my life. Never took the drug again. I did not CHOOSE to do this, and it was truly an honest mistake. This can happen, it's the experience and knowledge of the very experienced Paramedic that make a big difference and save lives everyday. The experience wasn't a pleasant one, neither should it be, but it shouldn't be made publicly. CALL 911, that's what we, I'm sorry they are for! God Bless Rescue Unit 345 NYC!
