Alachua County Jail inmate dies after having seizures Sunday
“After the second seizure, he didn’t wake up. Nurses and other jail staff performed CPR but couldn’t revive him.”
Inmate, 51, dies at Alachua County jail
“After a nurse took a blood sample, Sanders was sitting in a chair at the nurse’s station in Pod H when he had a seizure, Kelly said. He became responsive again before suffering a second seizure.
The nurse and jail staff started CPR, Kelly said.”
There were other reports, and none of them mentioned the nurses using a defibrillator, which I hope was just a journalistic oversight. Although far less likely than heart attacks, seizure deaths are common enough to have earned an acronym – SUDEP – which I hope that those entrusted with caring for others will Google.
