They checked her vitals and made sure she had a ride home and got her dressed and she was on her way. The next procedure I saw was a meniscus arthroscopy. The patient was brought into the operation room and set up by placing the affected knee onto what looked like a jack to keep it bent but up enough so that the doctor could work on it. His assistant was also there he would hold the tools that he would need. This procedure they used gas anesthesia given through an oxygen mask.
When AA’s condition become worse and was extremely manic the caregivers called the CRHT who prescribed lorezapam and haloperidol to calm him, the police were also called in. No mental health assessment had been done. This was however requested by a mental health practitioner once he/she was consulted. A transfer to a psychiatric intensive care unit (PICU) was also recommended. Hand cuffed, strapped to a stretcher and lying prone, AA was transported in an ambulance to Wedgewood where he was kept in isolation and checked on every 15 minutes due to lack of beds in the intensive care unit.
“An operation was being carried out in the operating theatre at the time and the entire surgical team and their patient were killed, including nursing sister Eden Pringle”(Fowler, 2005, p. 36). In the video, it accurately demonstrates the cause of death of Eden Pringle. In the video, she was assisting the doctor in an operation and a general alarm was sounded signaling an air raid. Eden
Each doctor received what amounted to barrels for storing water for sanitary purposes. By doing a lot of surgeries, doctors gained a lot of experience not only in dealing with war wounds, but also in their knowledge about the vertebrae, spine, and head. While men were in battle, women filled the need for bodies in the hospitals. It is estimated that 3200 women served as nurses. They risked their lives leaving home to work in the cesspools of infection.

Here I m getting rushed to the hospital and all of a sudden I hear us stopping and the nurse puts on a nurse mask and goes to the front and tells me the driver has what ever I have. I get to the hospital and she tells me I might not make out the hospital alive. All of a sudden I start shaking and
An ambulance arrived at the entrance of Bellevue Hospital, and an emergency bed sprinted across the polished, hospital floor. The wheels screeched, but they rolled with no hesitation. A crowd of four assisted around the bed: a father, a mother who tightly gripped their son’s hand, and two nurses who assured the injured that everything will be fine. The atmosphere tensed as the parents waited outside of the emergency room, praying for the procedure to end successfully. Buzzzz!
“Thank you for taking care of me at the hospital,” she barely uttered, as tears of liquid silver trickled down her cheeks. I watched from afar, as I realized that even though the nurse may have thought her contribution made no difference to the world, they made all the difference in the woman’s world.
