Inhaltsangabe: 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.
From Library Journal:
Guillain-Barre is a rare syndrome that can occur after a viral infection, causing degeneration of nerve sheaths and resulting in temporary paralysis. Baier chronicles her severe bout with this puzzling illness and her almost year-long stay in the hospital, most of which was spent in bed number ten of the intensive care unit. She was completely helpless and unable to move except for her eyelids; her mind remained clear but she could communicate with the sometimes unsympathetic staff only by blinking her eyes. Like other books of this genre, Bed Number Ten serves as an expression of gratitude to the many people who helped the author recover. At the same time, Baier provides a graphic personal view of one patient's experience with modern medicine in an ICU. A portion of this book appeared in Family Circle magazine.
