Health Condition Prognosis
I have posted on a couple websites about why cant the patient and/or caregiver be informed about the possible complications to come months and years later. I understand there are some legal battles and several reasons why it cant happen. But why cant the patient and/or caregiver be informed its possible they might develop PTSD or an anxiety/panic attacks. It doesntt have to say they will be its possible and things to looks for. Its not for any particular medical condition but for long term ICU care there will be some things that are different for you years later. From everything I have read about PICS (Post ICU Syndrome) things tend to be a little different for some if not most people. Just as HIPPA was formed why cant something be formed for a more informative way (video or pamphlet) to patients before they are released.......Just a RANT

I totally agree!!! No one told me that my life would never be the same. I am still 6 years later on oxygen and can't get better. I am so tired of always being sick. My family has to do so many things without me and I feel so bad!!!!
