If the nurse or doctor or aide or clerk or orderly or anyone else "says so," ask for a supervisor. If the supervisor "says so," ask to see the hospital administrator. If she or he is "too busy" for such contact, leave. There are other hospitals. If this sound like shopping for a new car, well, it very nearly is. Only this is more important.
Remember: all bureaucracies are most sensitive at the top. Schoolchildren (unfortunately) know that the principal is more likely to be understanding than the teacher they just talked back to. The Board of Education will be even more attentive. Do not argue with a nurse, doctor or hospital staff member. DEMAND TO MEET WITH TOP AUTHORITY if there is any unresolved problem. No hospital executive wants another lawsuit. If it takes a call to your attorney to make your point, then do it.
Perhaps, after a tirade like this, you expect me to grab my broomstick and wail, "I'm melting!" I have no apology to make for asserting your right to assert your rights.
Hospitals provide essential services and save lives. They will save even more when they fully utilize megavitamin therapy.

One patient, slight flank discomfort approaching 300 grams of vitamin in one day; prompt resolution with infusion of saline and administration of loop diuretic...
Virtually any treatment that is potent enough to cure a condition can be made toxic by incompetent administration and unawareness of body chemistry and physiology.
You do not want anybody giving you IV vitamin C anymore than you want a car mechanic doing your heart surgery.
While a great deal of additional medical education is not necessary for the competent administration of vitamin C, such education is nevertheless important for optimal safety and the absence of undesired side effects.

[W]hen you go to the hospital, bring along a black Sharpie pen, and cross out anything that you don't like in the contract. Put big giant X's through entire clauses and pages, and do not sign it. And when they say, "We're not going to admit you," you say, "Please put it in writing that you refuse to admit me." What do you think your lawyers are going to do with that? They have to [admit you]. They absolutely have to... It's a game, and you can win it. But you can't win it if you don't know the rules. And basically, they don't tell you the rules. In Hospitals and Health, we do.

I've been considering this issue off and on for the last year. Even more so after my dad's hernia surgery, when the hospital flatly refused to give any IVC (of course). So we snuck in some AA tablets for him, and he was literally up dancing around the room the morning after surgery.
But what if one of my loved ones was in an accident and ended up in the ICU? Can't swallow tablets if you're unconscious or on a ventilator. The only possibility for getting vitamin C into them in that situation (assuming, of course, that they would want you to) is to do things that are patently illegal and could get you locked up for life. Now, perhaps, if they were dying from lack of C and could never get it otherwise... but that's a road frought with peril. Worst case scenario.
In the meantime, hoping it will never come to that, I'm trying to learn the correct protocol for self-administering IVs at home. It's a poor solution, and nothing but a stopgap measure, but in these dark ages of profit-ruled medical care, either I learn to do it or I won't have the option if I need it.
Edit: Had some links to more specifics on how to do IVCs, but figured it may be unwise without Owen's approval. Dunno the legalities here. Owen?
