Even though the case might be similar, every patient reacts uniquely. Some patients become victims of life-threatening health disorders and disease. They suffer from immense pain and agony from the incident. He says that in all cases, not only does the patient suffer but the family of the patient faces a tough ordeal as well. Therefore, it is the primary need and onus of the treating physician to be compassionate when communicating with the patient and his/her family.
Customized treatment plans and their importance
Customized treatment plans contain the course of action that doctors and nurses follow when it comes to the treatment of patients recovering from a trauma. Most of the time, these patients are kept in intensive care units. They need to be supported by tubes, machines and other forms of medical equipment for healing and recovery. These treatment plans need to evaluated frequently. There are cases where the health of a patient might suddenly deteriorate, so the customized healthcare plan for the patient should make provisions for such changes.

He says that in the event of trauma, the families of the patient are confused and often find it emotionally difficult to deal with the situation.

Dr. Olade says the internal pain and agony for both the patient and family is immense. Doctors must guide them through the healing and recovery process in a personalized way so that they can cope with the challenges of life-threatening disease and disorders better!
