bessie Posted August 5, 2009 Share Posted August 5, 2009 Hello I'm new here My mum had a subarachnoid haemorrhage 7 days ago caused by a burst aneurysm. 2 days ago they moved her out of critical care and she was supposed to go to the high dependency unit, but instead she was put in a room, her drips taken out, removed off the heart moniter and left overnight. One nurse even made her stand up to sit on the comode, even with the drain in her head. On Monday, when the surgeon found out, he had her rushed to high dependency (this is where she is now thankfully) and put back on the heart moniter and her drip put back in. She is supposed to be having bed rest. The clinical nurse said this mistake wouldn't have affected her condition but when I visited her yesterday her memory seemed worse. She had the aneurysm coiled on Tuesday of last week. I am sick with worry and have a constant lump in my throat. I'm so scared for her. She is in Kings College hospital which I have been told is one of the best places she can be, but with this mistake happening I don't trust them now. Could her sitting upright have affected her recovery? :frown: Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
