The story of how Jean-Pierre Adams fell into a coma is very tragic, and the result of several mistakes made by the surgery team at the hospital.
How Jean-Pierre Adams Fell into a 39 Year Coma During Routine Surgery
On March 17, 1982 Jean-Pierre Adams was scheduled for a knee surgery at a hospital that was currently on strike. They were severely understaffed, and had one nurse attending to 8 different patients. Due to the lack of experienced nurses on hand, a trainee was tasked to supervise over Jean-Pierre Adams surgery.
The trainee gave Jean-Pierre Adams the wrong dosage of anesthetic, and intubated him incorrectly, which caused blockage in his lung area. As a result Jean-Pierre Adams fell into a 39 year coma he would never wake up from. His wife Bernadette stayed by his side until the end, that’s true love.
On Sunday September 19 OGC Nice will pay tribute to the dead Jean-Pierre Adams during their match at Allianz Riviera. It will be a special, but sad moment for soccer fans around the world who are shaken by this news that Jean-Pierre Adams is dead.
It’s beyond tragic that several doctor errors caused Jean-Pierre Adams’ to die in a coma. In a statement to CNN his wife Bernadette conveyed how simply delaying his surgery until more nurses and doctors were on hand could have saved his life.
