A dear girlfriend recently experienced what Dr. Rubin writes in her post. What would I do were the unthinkable to happen to my husband, or my daughter as a result of a mishap at the hands of a medical provider? Remaining calm under life-threatening situations is incomprehensible. Nonetheless, what Dr. Rubin suggests makes a lot of sense. I can only hope I’ll remember her advice should I ever need it.
Thank you for the reblog. Much appreciated!
My pleasure, entirely.
Hugmamma, I know these things happen. When my dad was in the hospital back in 1980, he was sent home, apparently without them checking thoroughly for blood clots. Since that was 1980, I don’t know how much they did back then. He died the same day in his sleep, because a blood clot traveled to his heart during a nap. It was a peaceful death, and he was almost 83, but it might have been avoided. —Susan
That is terrible! It’s frightening to think he was in professional hands…what more could you want…and then…he died the same day. I know these things happen…but when they’re easily preventable??? So sorry…
