In this week’s blog I want to bring to light
“Long-term ventilation with Tracheostomy and Intensive Care, the emotional price Patients and Families PAY!”
Long-term ventilated Adults& Children with Tracheostomy in Intensive Care have a high price to pay when it comes to their physical and emotional well being! And I don’t mean the $ 5,000 per day that it costs to keep a Patient in Intensive Care!
I am talking about the suffering, the vulnerability, the lack of privacy, the lack of dignity and the lack of control that are inevitably attached with the Intensive Care environment!
Long-term ventilated Adults& Children with Tracheostomy pay a very high emotional price to be dependent on life support and to be dependent on other people’s professional expertise, whether it be Intensive Care doctors or Intensive Care nurses!
Families pay high emotional price too by spending day and night in Intensive Care!
The Families of long-term ventilated Adults& Children with Tracheostomy pay a high emotional price as well! They spend day and night in Intensive Care to be with their loved one, they are frustrated, they live in constant fear and they feel extremely vulnerable by being dependent on other people!
The Families of Long-term ventilated Adults& Children with Tracheostomy basically have put their lives on hold as well! They often take unpaid time of work and they often neglect their personal and Family life as well!
Easing the emotional burden in a home care environment is a “no-brainer”
Having worked in both environments, a clinical Intensive Care environment and an Intensive Home Care environment, one way to ease the emotional burden for Long-term ventilated Adults& Children with Tracheostomy and their Families is to think outside of the box and do what has successfully been done in many European countries for more than 15 years and do what is natural, holistic and Patient and Family focused!
Intensive Home Care is natural, holistic and Family focused and it’s a no-brainer for anyone who has worked in the field and who has seen how Patients and their Families blossom, once they are in a non clinical, non- sterile, less regimented and safe environment!
INTENSIVE CARE AT HOME can ease the emotional burden for Long-term ventilated Adults& Children with Tracheostomy by offering a tailor made solution for our Clients and it’s a tailor made solution for your Intensive Care Unit as well!
