Deputy Sues Florida Hospital After Being Injected With Glitter

An undercover Orange County deputy says he went to Florida Hospital for a shot of pain medication, but instead the syringe was filled with glitter, the kind used in makeup.

It was cosmetic glitter, according to attorneys for the undercover deputy, injected right into muscles of the deputy's hip. The deputy had gone to Florida Hospital for sinus surgery in October of 2000. Nurses were supposed to inject him with Demerol. But one shot, he says, didn't make him feel better.

Three months later, he had a four-inch by four-inch mass near the injection site. It took another surgery to remove it. An analysis determined there was "green and red sparkling material" around the mass. In other words, glitter. "When Dr. Nawiki came to me and said we took some glitter looking stuff out of my buttock, I was shocked. I still am," the deputy said.

He continues to have health problems. He walks with a limp and has been hospitalized 12 more times. He's now suing Florida Hospital.

    Did someone steal the Demerol and replace it with mixture of dish washing liquid and glitter?

      I'm pretty sure it was shampoo. I remember there being a joke about the lab not being able to determine if it was some ritzy shampoo (Vidal Sassoon, maybe?) or generic.

      Why do I remember this crap?

    That would be cool if someone punched him in the hip and glitter exploded out of the wound. Well, glitter and pus.

  5. roninspoon says:

    What possible reason could a hospital have for maintaining and inventory of syringes full of glitter?

    Goddamn raver nurses, always fucking shit up. :(

  7. xed_geek says:

    What exact use does glitter serve via a syringe? Where would you inject it that it would be viewable. Odd.

    Hahahaha, its a cop. Some nurse decided she didn't like law enforcment so much. :)

      ... and the more that people fuck with cops the more they're going to decide that we're just a bunch of worthless fuck-offs that don't deserve a second chance. Yes, there are a ton of cops that are mindless wankers and power-hungry small-time bullies, but this really isn't the right way to deal with it.

    I was unaware that it was physically possible to force glitter through a syringe. Guess that's my new fact for the day.

    My God... what a fantastic allegory this is for my most recent ex-relationship.
