Sheri knows that nurses and doctors are amazing people to do what they do everyday. Every person at the hospital was caring and friendly. She knows that in emergency circumstances the physical well being of the patient is first and for most, and she knows that even with the best of education these things would still happen. What she thinks might be able to change is to make sure if some one comes out of a locked Alzheimer's ward where they require 24 hour supervision that there is some kind of coding system, maybe a red , yellow, or green dot, that represents this persons cognitive ability such as red means total assist and so forth. This info would be on whatever they sent to the hospital with him or pinned to his shirt or something like that. Then the same color dot goes up on the board with their name. I mean a large dot easily recognizable to all that enter the room.
This is just what has come to mind since this experience. One might think that "well this person was handed over to a medical facility, 24 hours hour supervision is their whole purpose." As you can see from the long recount of this experience a person with these types of impairment, 24 hour supervision means something very different. Sheri know many doctors and nurses and she loves and respects them all. This is just an area that needs more education and with the expected increase in these diseases, it needs to be soon.
