Write-up: patient experienced a wave of nausea, light-headedness, and briefly lost consciousness during vaccination. When she lost consciousness, I supported her weight and she remained in the chair for approx 15 seconds until she regained consciousness. I had two technicians to assist in calling a code white and documenting the event. At 10:43 am, patient lost consciousness and regained 15 seconds later. Once I knew the patient was stable enough to support her own weight, i held her hands to make sure she was not going to lose consciuosness again. I administered an ice pack and a cool towel at 10:45 am. Code white was responded to by associates from AP and manager. I observed the patient for 15 minutes, and AP associate observed for another 15 minutes for a total of 30 minutes. The patient recovered fully and had a friend drive her home.
