I'm in no way justifying this or saying its ok - but as a nurse I can only imagine that he/she assumed all of your information would have been on the chart. Charts have big bright stickers when there are allergies... They must have assumed everything was ok since nothing was on the chart? Again - not saying it's ok just trying to figure out how that happened.
