20. My thoughts exactly.

I am not a nurse, but I am a medical technologist in a clinical laboratory and my mother has a history of diabetes controlled by insulin. A dose of 80 units is pretty high. Somebody should have checked on the previous dosage. Of course, if they are hiring agency nurses who don't know the patient's history this could be part of the problem. The other part is that nobody monitored this patient.

It makes me angry too, arikara.
