Home Care Nurse Mishap Results In Brain Injury To Patient

Brain Injury Caused by Nursing Home MishapThere’s been a lot of internet chatter regarding the home-video of a quadriplegic British man who suffered a brain injury after his home care nurse shuts off the life-support system and is unable to switch it back on.  What makes this situation so tragic is that the man was so concerned about the poor care he was receiving that he had a video camera mounted in his room to document his care.

If anything, I hope this video serves as a reminder to all caregivers that they should be aware of how to care for their patients in cases of emergencies.  At the very least, all caregivers should be familiar with the medical equipment their patients use and know how to revive them in emergencies.
