Well I am glad to see someone getting some medical care by MCR and PVH. Unlike my daughter, who was denied immediate treatment by going to the nearest hospital, PVH. Instead she was taken on the scenic route that took over seventeen minutes. During that long ride, my daughter is denied adequate ventilation, immediate blood and treatment by a trauma doctor. Then when she finally arrives at MCR, she is kept in the ER for over an hour, while she is stabilized and a CT Scan. The neurologist was not even called for over an hour after the accident had been reported to the hospital. My daughter is denied hypothermia therapy, CSF Drain, Barbiturates, although she is given one treatment for her brain that is swelling at an alarming rate, she is given an asmotic agent, mannitol, the medical report said, improvement is made, then the doctor delivers the death blow for my daughter. Within fifteen minutes of his exam, he declares my daughter a poor prognosis, therefore recommends supportive care, end of life care, no further intervention indicated. Hey doctor my daughter was breathing and coughing when you gave up on her! Hey my daughter was alive, she was never brain dead, just brain injured. Hey doctor my daughter died because she was anemic, her blood was at critical low levels for six days, this will eventually cause a heart attack, and will hinder my daughter's ability to oxygenate her organs, and body. Hey doctor, my daughter died because she was not fed. Hey doctor, my daughter died because she was in pain and shock. Hey doctor why did you cancel the additional blood products? Hey doctor why did you deny my daughter food and pain medication? My daughter was twenty five years old, she wanted to live, she fought long and hard for six days, while nurses and doctors stood by and watched her die. It is noted on the medical report that my daughter was not tolerating the repositioning in the bed, she was contracting her muscles to painful stimuli, she was withdrawing her both limbs to painful stimuli, she breathed over the machine and she coughed. Yet this amazing signs of life were ignored by the doctors and nurses and discarded as primitive. Hey doctor breathing is not primitive it is vital. Just you try to live without breathing. My daughters doctors were stupid, and they had an ongoing plan for my daughter to honor her wish to be an organ donor.
