Patient : My wife was in the hospital last year for an infection on her lungs which also spread to a heart valve. She sedated and intubated due to her condition. She had a stroke due to a piece of the infection on her valve breaking off. Should the staff been able to tell she was having a stroke even though she was sedated and intubated ? She was hooked up to all kinds of monitors.
