Hello all, I am new here.
My dad is 71 yrs old. Two months back, he suffered a hematoma due to a road accident . He recovered from hematoma but got into dementia. Since he had psychiatric disturbances, we had to hospitalize him. While at hospital he acquired acenetobacter multi drug resistant bacterial infection that caused meningitis and ventriculitis. His GCS came down to 3 from 13. He developed hydrocepalus because of the infection and currently on external drain. He is given colistin to treat infection. Doctors say neurosurgery patient who is not into surgical intervention will not normally get this infection and my dad is unfortunate to have this episode. He is in coma for the past 12 days. Our family is almost collapsed to face the situation can anyone with an experience handling this give us hope.
