Hi, it’s Patrik Hutzel from intensivecarehotline.com with another quick tip for families in intensive care.
So last week we sent a question to our email subscriber list and we ask the question to all of our subscribers, what is their biggest frustration when they have a loved one in intensive care, and here is one of the common themes that we heard from our subscribers and it goes like this.
A lot of subscribers told us when my loved one, my husband, my mom, my dad, my spouse, my brother and my sister was in intensive care and in an induced coma, it was very difficult to get information from the intensive care team. And also we asked the intensive care team to do certain things or not do certain things, and they were unwilling to listen. So that’s a common theme we heard by surveying our emails subscriber list.
So here is how you can attack that going forward. So the biggest challenge for families in intensive care is simply that they don’t know what they don’t know. So what do I mean by that? So intensive care is a highly specialized area. You know, for example, I’ve worked in intensive care for 20 years, and I do believe that I understand the intensive care inside out. So what challenge does that brings with you as a family is that again, you simply don’t know what you don’t know.
You don’t know what you need to look for. You don’t know what questions you need to ask. And worst of all, you don’t know how to manage doctors and nurses in the intensive care, because that is really critical. So if you don’t know what to look for, if you don’t know what questions you need to ask, and if you don’t know how to manage doctors and nurses in intensive care, you will be standing on lost ground and you will be losing a fighting battle.
The intensive care team knows that intensive care is such a highly specialized area. That if you don’t know what questions to ask and you don’t know how to handle them, they can do whatever they like. And that is often what happens. That happens for 99% of the families in intensive care. They get walked all over quite frankly.
So how to get out of the dilemma.
