Dh50,000 cash reward for hospital security guards who saved life of 23-year-old Emirati woman in car park

The quick action saved the life of the woman, F. Al Hosani, who doctors diagnosed as a critical case of pulmonary embolism, or blood clots traveling to the lungs.

In a statement to Gulf News, the hospital management said: “We came across multiple messages of gratitude on various social media platforms, and even received calls at the hospital’s call center acknowledging the tremendous efforts and dedication of the hospital guards. security and the entire team after reading the news in Gulf News. The quick action of the security guards and the coordinated response of the team played a vital role in ensuring that the young woman received the urgent medical attention she desperately needed. The management of the hospital recognized the importance of acts of heroism and took it upon itself to recognize and reward unsung heroes. Dr. Shamsheer Vayalil, founder and chairman of Burjeel Holdings, presented Dh50,000 cash as a token of appreciation to employees at an organized event at the hospital”.

The woman, who was treated by a group of nurses, was taken in a wheelchair to the resuscitation room, where a team of emergency medicine professionals went into action.

According to Dr Wissam Al Sahli, Consultant Interventional Cardiology, advanced cardiac life support measures had to be initiated and after resuscitating the patient for 10 minutes, she was stabilized. But her condition remained critical.

When suspicions of a pulmonary embolism arose, he underwent an emergency CT scan, after which his worst fears came true.

As Dr Mohamed Almarzooqi, Consultant Interventional Neuroradiology, Interventional Radiology and HOD, said, time was a critical factor. “The CT scan of his lungs showed multiple pulmonary embolisms (clots) in the lungs, which were affecting the body’s oxygenation, his blood pressure and putting enormous pressure on the heart. The team was also on standby to aspirate the blood clot,” he said.

After an emergency meeting, the team decided to administer blood-thinning medications to address the embolism. Within a couple of hours, the patient’s vital signs gradually improved. Al Hosani was on artificial ventilation because she could not breathe on her own. The next day, once her vital signs stabilized, the team was able to take her off the ventilator and regain consciousness. She soon recovered and was discharged home five days later.

The patient said: “I thank the Almighty that I am alive. I was not feeling well but I did not expect that this would lead to such a serious condition. I am grateful to the entire team at Burjeel Hospital.”
