    I would like to know if it happens 50% of the time to Patients Then why the hell aren’t the Families at least pre-warned about it?? This is so messed up for people !! Secrets are not usually the best way to deal with any situation let a lone when someone you love is fighting for their life!! I feel it is a very bad display of bed side manners and this is just UN-Except-able.

    Only a week after getting out isn’t bad. How long can it longer?

    My sister is in ICU and she is experiencing this it’s hard to understand what’s going on with her some days she is normal and than she goes back with not knowing

    My mother is in ICU for pneumonia, plus she has kidney failure which she receives dialysis.From one day to the next she totally lost all touch with reality.She became mean and swearing, she tried to rip an IV out of her arm.She thought all of her family were in on a conspiracy to kill her because we want her money.She was saying she hated us, we make her sick, that we hate her.It was awful.Will she come back from all this once the infection is gone, they said it is clearing up but I see no improvement.She won’t eat or drink because she thinks there is poison in in.Even the staff there she thinks is out to kill her.
