While most of us are more than happy to celebrate a loved one’s recovery when they’ve been hospitalised for a severe condition, we should always be mindful of how we react to these situations so we don’t run the risk of accidentally putting their lives in jeopardy again!
Recently, a 19-year-old boy from Taiwan was comatised because the blood vessels in his brain had ruptured. Fortunately, due to his young age, he was still able to recover and woke up from the coma after just a day of being hospitalised.
Upon hearing the good news, his relatives were overjoyed and rushed to visit him at the hospital. Dr. Jiang, the doctor who treated the comatised patient said that the hospital typically only allowed two visitors to enter the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) at once.
However, the boy’s relatives pleaded with the doctor, saying that they had traveled a long way to see their revived family member. Hence, he allowed all of them to enter at once. But Dr.Jiang forgot to tell them to use their “indoor voice” and speak softly as to not startle the patient, especially since he had just woken up from a coma.
When his family members saw the newly-awakened 19-year-old lying on the bed, they cheered for him, shouting loud exclamations of celebration. But, he wasn’t able to celebrate with them, as the boy was so overcome with excitement that his brain’s blood vessels ruptured again!
According to Guanghua Daily, Dr.Jiang could immediately sense that something was wrong and quickly entered the room to try and monitor the boy’s blood pressure but it was too late. The boy had sadly fallen back into a coma despite only JUST waking up from one!
Thankfully, after 2-3 more days of rest and constant monitoring, the boy managed to recover and wake up again – this time, for good.
Dr.Jiang appeals to all members of the public to be aware when visiting patients in the hospital. Make sure you understand the patient’s condition and what he or she may be prone to before communicating with them. A moment of celebration can quickly turn into one of horror otherwise.
