A Doctor with Epilepsy Calls for Greater Understanding by Medical Professionals

Image
While many -- possibly most -- doctors, nurses, and other medical professionals have compassionate, medically prepared abilities when confronted with a seizure, it's not always the case.  A friend of mine died shortly after ER staff left her in the waiting room while having over 70 myoclonic seizures.  Reason:  She wasn't unconscious, so they didn't think they were seizures.

In this illuminating article, Dr. Brian Smith from Spectrum Health Butterworth Hospital in Grand Rapids, MI, tells us of his experience with having a seizure during rounds.  Experiencing the stigma against epilepsy and lack of medical preparedness for seizure care, he joins many of us in calling
for greater training about epilepsy, such a common neurological disorder.
