    Too eager with the harvesting - it's becoming big biz and that's scary.

    They said 25 tests are taken to see if the patient will get better. This patient was DECLARED DEAD. How does it seem like one in the SAME..If a patient as a illness/cancer and the END is evident, then all precautions are taken to make the patient comfortable. This patient was DECLARED DEAD, so it was a MIRACLE that she WOKE UP... God made her wake up, and He wanted ALL of us to pay more attention to our doctors and their procedures followed. There are always MISTAKES made in LIFE, but when they happen in a HOSPITAL, then that HOSPITAL should be INVESTIGATED and if they find it or someting suspicious went on, IT SHOULD BE CLOSED.

    Hospital staff MAKE mistakes, and when they happen they are HUGH. I had brain surgery, and while in ICU they asked me the gauge of pain I was having from 1-10.I said in the head about a 6, but in the LEFT chest, it was a 12. Nurse looked at the monitor and said, I'm sorry but the monitor doesn't show anything. And increased the MORPHINE for the remainder of the 4 days.Operation was a FAILURE, and I then picked a different one. Froedert Hospital, has some of the BEST doctors, and had the SKULL sawed open from the widows peak down the side of the head to my ear. During recovery, I had that same PAIN in left chest, and thy QUICKLY brought in a type of X-ray machine and X-rayed the heart. I had another heart attack. They asked me if I had ever had this before and I said, yes, at Mercy in Oshkosh... So, within 3 weeks I had TRIPLE BYPASS. So, they are some times just nurses doing a JOB, but other times they actually CARE about the patient. This individual just HAPPENED to be LUCKY. OMG, how close to death can one get. That was SLOPPY medical service. I can't imagine it at all... But, this doesn't SURPRISE me anymore.

    OH MY LORD!!! wha-at? Listen, if WE don't get family or someone checking everything "they" do, we'll all be done for. Are hospitals becoming sausage machines? My friend got a shot of tramadol just post operatively and when she reached the ward, the nurse said: aaah, let me give you something for pain and promptly gave her the same shot. Needless to say, she had a near death experience and all medical personell came on board to save her life. Even while under, you have to keep one eye open - it's recommended. No morals or dedication to be found any longer

    Bizarre story! Is this an old story? Was the woman in a coma for 2 years since her overdose happened in 2009? This is why I do not indicate being an organ donor on my drivers license.

    Things like this happens all the time. Doctors and nurses overlook things.

    That is what we go to HOSPITALS for. We are supposed to get the BEST care/TREATMENT money can buy. This time, ALL of those involved should be BLACK LISTED from ever doing any kind of MEDICAL work again.
