How to avoid a nasty case of post-traumatic stress disorder in nursing homes
- by admin
A patient of the nursing home’s resident nurse has developed post-traumatic stress disorder after she was exposed to the fumes of a decomposing body, the Jerusalem Post reported on Sunday.
The resident nurse was in the middle of a routine checkup when the nurse began experiencing severe headaches and was given a painkiller, the paper said.
The nurse had been working with her daughter, who had recently arrived from Gaza, and her wife.
The nurse was taken to the hospital, where she was diagnosed with post- traumatic stress disorder.
Her condition worsened on Monday, and the nursing supervisor of the hospital took her to the operating room, where her condition deteriorated further.
She was later transferred to the intensive care unit, where the doctors said she was in a very critical condition.
The family’s lawyer said that since the nurse is in a critical condition, the hospital had to take a precautionary measure to protect her.
“This patient has suffered and continues to suffer from the effects of the poisonous fumes of the decomposing bodies of Palestinian victims of Israeli terror,” the lawyer, Shaul Kechiel, told The Jerusalem Times.
