Choosing the right hospital
A K (name changed) , a 20 year old woman who was admitted at Ruby General Hospital in March, 2008. She was pillion riding a motorcycle when she was hit by a bus. She incurred life threatening injuries all over her whole body including massive skin loss and extensive loss of tissue in the buttocks. She had multiples fractures as well. The three dimensional catscan reconstructed image of the multiple fractured pelvis showed her near fatal condition at the time of admission. She was bleeding profusely and her hemoglobin was 3.1 gram percent. Exploratory laparotomy was done, the torn right iliac vein was repaired and an abdominal pressure pack was kept inside the abdomen to stop the bleeding. She was transfused with 15 units of blood.
Also, external pelvic fixation was performed. Abdominal packs were removed after 48 hours. She had a total of five major surgeries and was treated by doctors from eleven different specialties. The patient walked out of the hospital after three and half months.
This young woman was amongst those who did not have a choice of hospitals because most accident victims on the E.M. Bypass are brought to Ruby General Hospital.
