Publisher: CRC Press
Bed Number TenManaged Care

A patient's personal view of long term care.

Seen through the eyes of a patient totally paralyzed with Guillain-Barré syndrome, this moving book takes you through the psychological and physical pain of an eleven month hospital stay. BED NUMBER TEN reads like a compelling novel, but is entirely factual.

You will meet:

  • The ICU staff who learned to communicate with the paralyzed woman - and those who did not bother.
  • The physicians whose visits left her baffled about her own case.
  • The staff and physicians who spoke to her and others who did not recognize her presence.
  • The nurse who tucked Sue tightly under the covers, unaware that she was soaking with perspiration.
  • The nurse who took the time to feed her drop by drop, as she slowly learned how to swallow again.
  • The physical therapist who could read her eyes and spurred her on to move again as if the battle were his own.
  • In these pages, which reveal the caring, the heroism, and the insensitivity sometimes found in the health care fields, you may even meet people you know.
