A nurse spends the last hours of her last shift comforting a patient waiting to hear of a life-changing examination. about the delivery of the Channel 5 24/7 victim.
Nurse Jade Melia is about to leave the Barnsley Department when Kevin, 29 years old from South Yorkshire, is brought to Barnsley Hospital after a bad fall.
Kevin was quickly taken to A & E after he stumbled over his dog and fell down a flight of stairs in his house.
When he arrives in Barnsley, he suffers from & # 39; severe back pain & # 39 ;, and the paramedic explains that he fell directly from the top of the stairs to the bottom during the fall.
The paramedic also adds that Kevin reduced a & # 39; has a sensation in his legs, which leads to an examination by the doctor to see if he is paralyzed.

The terrifying scene sees the doctor ask Kevin if he can feel something in his feet. While the young man feels everything that is done on his left foot, he feels nothing on his right.
Kevin seems unable to move his toes, but he is able to push his left foot against the doctor's hand. However, his right foot does not respond to the exam.
The team must assess how much damage Kevin's back has suffered in the fall and order a CT scan to learn more.
During the waiting moments, it is the turn of nurse Jade and nurse Will, who is also on the case, to maintain Kevin & # 39; s state of mind.
After the scan, Kevin is in pain and needs to be cared for. Jade explains that she must be particularly careful about how she doses his painkillers.
There is a chance that Kevin has lost the ability to feel in his legs. The team examines him physically in addition to the CT scan

& # 39; I can't just slide it into you & # 39 ;, she laughs when Kevin suggests she does.
& # 39; People have different pain thresholds & # 39 ;, she explains to the camera, & # 39; what becomes painful does not necessarily have to be painful for my partner. He's a little harder than me. & # 39;
In the A&E, Kevin asks if he can have a little more medication to feel relaxed while waiting for the results of his exam.
& # 39; If you walk into a room and you see a 20-year-old, you can be more relaxed with them & # 39 ;, she says. & # 39; They will need that smile for reassurance.
& # 39; It's just a matter of judgment as you walk through those curtains & # 39 ;, she explains.
Eventually the CT scan comes back clearly: there is nothing wrong with Kevin and he will soon be able to go home and scold his four-legged friend.
Once he feels better, Kevin can sit in his bed. He proudly shows a photo of his dog to Jade, who gushes over the pet.
& # 39; You can't be mad at him, & # 39; she protests jokingly.
& # 39; No treats, & # 39; Kevin jokes back.

On the other side of the hospital, the junior doctor George Kay starts the day with the 66-year-old George being brought in by ambulance.
George suffers from a lung condition that makes breathing difficult. But he postponed his arrival at A&E because he did not like hospitals.
George's condition has worsened over the past six months, but he has ignored it until it has deteriorated further in the last few days.
The doctor is sympathetic to George & # 39; s fears, but he adds that when people skip a visit to the hospital, they risk getting worse, which means more difficult and longer treatment.
& # 39; I think there are many reasons why people are afraid of hospitals. It is difficult from our point of view because we come to the hospital every day to work, so it seems like a normal environment.
& # 39; But if you put yourself in your patient's shoes, they may have been years ago, they don't know what's going to happen, they're worried about things that hurt, they're worried about it find bad news they didn't know, & he continues.

He has had at least one heart attack in the past and needs to be treated efficiently.
Very quickly, Dr. Kay is worried: & # 39; Older patients are generally very stoic, they don't want to come to the hospital and they don't want to bother anyone, but they may be some of the sickest patients we see & # 39 ;, he says. .
While George's two sons are watching, Dr. Kay hooks the man to a machine to help him breathe and slow his heartbeat.
Research results show that George suffers from a lung infection, but the machine has made his breathing easier.
& # 39; You look a bit more comfortable than you were, & # 39; Dr. Kay says encouragingly.
At the end of the trial, Kevin shows a picture of his Sproker Spaniel to take care of Jade and the dog no longer jokes candy
& # 39; I am not – my a *** is painful, & # 39; George replies to tease him.
& # 39; I wish there was a magic solution I could give you, unfortunately that is not the case.
& # 39; The best things are the patients, the worst is the patients & # 39 ;, Dr. Kay says to the camera.
& # 39; I'm trying to put them at ease, I think, especially if they're worried and trying to make them feel comfortable and feel safe and secure, "he explains.
