Hospital visitor turned patient's ventilator off
Last Friday, the staff at the Hospital Dr. Negrín in Las Palmas saved a patient's life shortly after the ventilator that supported him had been switched off. At around 8pm the German had been visited in the intensive care unit by his daughter, who had flown in from Germany. Suddenly the alarm signal sounded and the nursing staff intervened. The patient's ventilator had been switched off. They turned the ventilator back on and held the daughter until the police arrived.
