    Default Feeling sad for a stranger :(

    Don't know if this is a hormonal thing or the fact that I'm already upset.. Sitting at hospy with DS (nothing major, but just upsets me that he can't come home, they're just doing obs for a high temp) and anyway.. An elderly lady just flatlined/coded and went into arrest.. They defribulated her and moved her to the rescusitation bay but I think she died I know the staff have better things to do at that time but could they not have pulled the curtain?? I then have to go home to get DS regular meds because it looks like he is staying in and the poor womans family is sitting in the waiting room waiting for news I feel so bad for them.. Just wanted to vent. Not pleasant to see.

    She was still somewhat conscious at the time and screamed out in pain!

    We experienced something quite similair with my bil. It was just so surreal and traumatic. And yes when i think back to the staff, they were all greatly affected by it as well, it was a very very hard position to be in.

    Hugs that must have been a very hard thing to witness. We can only hope she is in a better place now and dying fast like that is better than months of drawn out pain etc..

    Hope your lo is better soon.

    Almost 2 years ago Ds spend a week in hospital with bronchiolitis, during our stay a 6 m/o was admitted with bronchiolitis as well, she unexpectedly passed away at 9 am in her cot next to Ds, had been watching her fight since 2 am when they brought her in.

    I still feel sad about it when I think about it and I often wonder how her family are.

    its probably best practice to pull the curtain around - but in the moment, the curtain really isn't the focus I guess .. its getting that heart started again

    I'm sure it was traumatic (I cant watch most medical shows) and its always terrible to see the family members waiting for news ... but I'm not sure that the staff always have time to think of everything when seconds count in that sort of situation
