New episode of 24 Hours in A&E: Just the Way You Are…
The award-winning 24 hours in A&E returns with a series of compilations featuring some of the most memorable staff and patient stories filmed since 2011 at King’s College Hospital and St George’s in South London – places where life, love and loss unfold every day.
This episode features three patients filmed at St George’s Hospital who are all in immediate need of different types of care.
52-year-old Maria suffers from MS and has been brought to resus with suspected sepsis. As doctors work to regulate her temperature, her husband Duncan talks about their life together and how they supported each other through her diagnosis.
71-year-old Mel is rushed to St George’s after being accidentally knocked down and run over by her husband John. Mel’s blood pressure drops critically low and doctors call a “Code Red,” putting her on standby for an emergency blood transfusion.
John talks about how their forty-nine-year marriage began when they met at Butlins in Skegness. He was a kitchen porter, she was a chalet maid, and he brought her the best food from the kitchen to rejuvenate her after a bout of food poisoning.
And 40-year-old Jibraeel, who has a passion for role-playing fantasy novels, has lodged a cotton bud in his ear.
