“Steve” (not a real person) had suffered headaches before, but nothing like the one he had that night. His neck throbbed in rhythm with the pounding in his skull. The pain was so intense that he vomited. When he told his wife that he felt disoriented, she helped him into the car and rushed him to the emergency room. It took the ER staff only three hours to examine Steve, diagnose him with a migraine, give him some pain medication, and send him home.
When Steve collapsed at his consulting firm’s office two mornings later, he was rushed to an emergency room again. The diagnosis this time was much more grave: Steve had suffered a stroke. Had the practitioners who examined Steve two nights earlier ordered that he undergo a CT scan, they easily would have identified the signs of a stroke in progress. They then could have performed a procedure that would have stopped the bleeding inside Steve’s head and could have avoided the brain damage he ultimately suffered.
Steve is now largely stranded in the time of his stroke. With severe damage to his short term memory, he no longer can retain new information for more than a few minutes. Steve’s consulting career is gone, and so is his ability to support his family. In the meantime, the monthly bills have kept rolling in, increasingly joined by the costs of caring for the family’s stricken breadwinner.
