I don’t mean to alarm anyone with sharing this. But it is a concern that sometimes can or might happen to transplant patients or those in the hospital who need for surgical or other reasons to spend time in the ICU.
It’s also good for professionals to be aware of this too, so they can watch for signs to minimize the potential impact it may have on someone they love/care for.
I sometimes touch on uncomfortable subjects or lesser known problems because I feel that sometimes the best way to learn to confront them is by first recognizing they exist & learning about them.
Keeping things like this hush-hush because they are unpleasant & maybe scary to contemplate doesn’t help those who may unfortunately encounter it.
