Has anyone seen a scalp IV before? I hadn’t until I went to the ER recently and saw my baby with an IV attached to his head. If the situation wasn’t so serious, I would probably have laughed. I have never heard of such a thing before and I’ve seen many episodes of Grey’s Anatomy. The ER staff could not find a good vein in his arms so they stuck the IV in baby’s head. He hated it and eventually pulled it out.
