Hello Trian! Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Stroke is a disruption of blood flow to the brain, either due to the blockage or narrowing of blood vessels or rupture of blood vessels. Stroke is a medical emergency and needs immediate treatment. If the patient's condition is unstable, the patient cannot be referred to another hospital, especially since the hospital is in a different city. Displacement of patients who are unstable can be fatal, even to death, while on the way. If you really want your mother to be referred, you should discuss with the neurologist who is treating her, so that your mother can be moved when her condition is stable. As long as your mother is still in ICU, your mother should not be referred first. Even if your mother has moved to an ordinary room, your mother may not be stable enough to move. The doctor needs to examine and determine whether your mother is safe enough during transfer. Even though it has stabilized, keep in mind that complications can still occur during this removal process. What makes it fatal if complications occur during the transfer process is the absence of a doctor who can provide immediate action. The equipment in the ambulance was not as complete as in a hospital. You need to think carefully about this and you can also discuss with your family. If indeed your decision is unanimous to move your mother, try to consider a larger hospital that is closer.
That's all information from me. I hope this helps.
