I think you need to get your school administration involved, officially.
Document the events and your medical needs. Approach this as UNemotionally as possible with administration.
Do it in person, not in phone call or e-mail.
Keep records of everything.

I completely agree. This is totally unacceptable. I take my child to Children's Memorial because they have some of the best allergy docs anywhere around. I bet they would be POd if they heard about this!!

I am really sorry that this is happening to you. Please do not try to handle it yourself. I agree with getting the school admin involved.
People can be really stupid and hurtful but you'll find good ones too. Please take care of yourself.

They've kinda worked things out for me (I always have the option of leaving) but there is no infinite safety for PA medical students or patients apparently until laws/rules are changes or made. Since it is outside a classroom setting my teachers and school can only do so much. So I'll let you all know when I need your signature for petition legislation.
I graduate in two months, can't wait!
stay safe

If you graduate in two months, you might not have time to go this route, but perhaps someone at the Disabilities Services office (or whatever it is called at your medical school) could help.
Kind of ironic that you're having trouble with this in a *hospital* setting! Good luck with dealing with this!

I am currently working through the disabillities office. I am there first PA ever so we're taking it slow to do things right and help set a standard/guide for PA people, but I came to late it seems.
