Reading articles about people for organ doning scares me. I know people make mistakes and hospitals do so to. Sometimes I think that the hospitals are to eager to shut down life support. I think people should be given a chance to live. After all there are cases of people beeing in the respirator for years, even tens of years and then they wake up. If people even have a chance they should be given that chance, if they haven´t said once in life that they do not want to. All others we cannot know, since they haven´t said what they wanted.
A organ donation should be only on dead doners, not living if they cannot continue to stay alive of course. Today it´s possible to donate half a liver and one kidney if you got two.
Well in todays Expressen.se we could read about a young women involvd in a car crash that was beein prepped for organ donation. During the prep she woke up. Imagine having your organs stolen like that. Imagine doctors giving up on you even though you are not dead. Cruel. That is why quality assurance in all occupations is so very important. Everything was filmed on top of this…
The women wasn´t brain dead and the doctors didn´t even check if she was, according to Expressen.se. This should not be possible! And I think that there should be time ellapsed from a accident and care giving. Everyone should be given a chance to wake up. Every life counts. Your body is yours as long as you are alive. We must be able to trust the hospitals… in this case something did go wrong.
If people weren´t in a hurry then there would be checklists and more quality assurance everywhere.
