1. Day nurse is made of awesome |
2. Our primary care doc came in and made many things better
3. He's being moved to a real room even as I write
4. I have the number to call to make a complaint
also in view of the flu? everyone going in or out of the room washes hands and wears a face mask. even if hoispital says otherwise
flu or no flu, in *any* hospital situation, people coming and going from patient rooms - everybody - needs to be washing their hands. and not using sanitizer. washing. with soap and water.
These, yes. Also keep an eye on bandaging, IV sites, everything as you can, make sure the skin is okay, either healing or holding up. (Gross I know, but hospitals are the best places to get infections.) And Yay for the doctor and Day Nurse!
i am so so ssorry ... i didnt even know until like 10 minutes ago!!!
my cell phone is on the fabric dragon webpage... fabricdragon dot com
call me if i can help
the words to strike terror in any hospital are "patient advocate"
also "ADA compliance"
and i am glad you have a good day nurse.
Awesome indeed! I am so glad it got straightened out. Sucks beyond belief that he (and you!) had to go through that. Here's hoping things go smoother from here on.
Thank goodness for awesome things! I hope this trend continues. :)
When my dad was in the hospital for a very serious surgery (he's been fine since then, thank God), almost all of the hospital staff were great . . . except for two goofball nurses. In retrospect, we should have reported them for their unprofessional behavior.
i learned the importance of patient advocates during thomas' transplant stuff.
not that we had any *true* problems - but they do help with a ton of different things, and ours was a blessing.
patient advocates can be absolutely awesome, yes they can. some, not so much. they're still *all* human, no matter their job designation.
I really hope this continues to improve. Sending love.
Go you for being an awesome advocate for him!
*HUGS* Glad things are better today. It sounds to me like he really is doing well, overall. Triple bypass surgery is *huge*, and I'm really sorry that you seemed to get a poor explanation of the recovery process. Also, there are always individual variances that change expectations of recovery that may be different from "norm" without being abnormal. Here is a pretty good website for information when you are feeling up to looking into thing more: http://www.uptodate.com/contents/recovery-after-coronary-artery-bypass-graft-surgery-cabg-beyond-the-basics
Sending continuing prayers for healing and peace for Ferret, you, and all who are caring for him.
