"Was sick in the eleven years that the doctors gave the wrong medicine."
"the Family gathered at his deathbed to say goodbye."
"But just a few days later was Gulli Johanson, 75, healthy."
"the Doctors had made a disastrous mistake:"
"She had not been severely senile in eleven years – she had been given the wrong medicine."
"It is a story that could have ended in may of last year."
"Then called the staff at the hospital to the relatives and said that it was time to come and say goodbye, that mom had stopped eating."
"– I remember it so well. My sister called me on may 7 and told me that mom was dying. I was up two days later and bid farewell, " says the son, Börje Johanson to Aftonbladet."
"But a few days later sat Gulli Johanson up. She had not spoken intelligibly in eleven years. And said to the staff:"
"– What is good that you are here. I want to rise up."
"What was it that had happened?"
"in the Summer of 1996. Gulli Johanson was on vacation in the archipelago together with one of his sons, then she suddenly had an epileptic seizure."
" I remember that we went ambulanshelikopter and I saw the Globe. It is the last thing I will remember for many, many years, " she says."
"We sit in the Gulli Johansons room at a nursing home in Västerhaninge, south of Stockholm. Barnbarnsbarnet Noah Wickman, 4, in the knee."
"Even her son Börje Johanson and granddaughter Mary Johanson."
"Gulli Johanson got medicine against epilepsy. But she only became worse. Went down in weight, became depressed, started to get difficult to solve the crossword puzzle."
"– my Mother ended up in a utredningskarusell. Bollades back and forth between different hospitals, " says Börje Johanson."
"Doctors put in a new medicine. But Gulli just became more and more forgetful and was starting to get hard to go."
"in 2002, she was moved to a demensboende."
"– my Mom was a single piece. She lay in bed all day and didn't. I used to come and visit once in six months. It was pointless to come more often, " says Börje Johanson."
"In läkarbibeln Fass is that the very medications that Gulli took has ”dementia-like condition” as a side effect. There was nothing the doctors reflected upon."
"Or rather – ”uppdrag granskning” has found records where a doctor thinks that the confused woman herself should take their medication with the physician."
"When Gulli Johansson last spring was dying was the medicine away. She went from difficult dementia to healthy in just a few days."
" I could not believe my ears when my sister called. She had received a call from the nursing home. My mother had suddenly started to talk, " says Börje."
"– Unreal. Absolutely unreal. My mom came back from the dead."
"Joy, but also sorrow."
" We have lost so many years. And my children have had to grow up without a grandmother."
"Gulli Johanson is narrow and thin. It has taken time for her to learn to walk again. Now she is able, however, completely yourself. Get up in the morning, dressing, taking care of their hygiene."
"She has been moved to a common äldrehem."
"– that which overshadows all is that I can enjoy life again. There is a long pause in my life, but I can listen to music and read books."
"She says that she read 277 books since she was healed. And she has methodically gone through the major events that occurred during the forgotten years:"
"the Skyscrapers that fell in New York, the murder of Anna Lindh, the alliance's victory."
"– It is very painful when I think about how my family had during all these years. I understand their suffering, my own mother was in a hospital for six years before she died."
"Almost none of the doctors responsible to answer questions about the case."
"Thomas Björkbom, medically responsible doctor at the health centre Gulli Johanson was asked on an interview."
"But, since he was not in charge during the ill years, he could strictly speaking not answer a single question."
"Even Svante Baehrendtz, chief medical officer at Karolinska university hospital, the hospital several times examined Gulli Johanson, has set up in front of the camera."
"He, however, refuses to talk about ”individual cases” – despite the fact that the affected woman the permission to break the confidentiality."
"' Important to tell you”"
"Gulli choose to come forward in the newspaper Aftonbladet and SVT for that, as she says, it is important to tell you."
"– this should not be done. But if it has hit me so it must be able to hit the other."
"No one knows how many Gulli there are in our hospitals. Elderly people who seems to be senile, but might just have been given the wrong medicine."
"Gulli Johanson has of the care offered to 45 000 crowns in compensation for the lost years."
" I don't know what I'll say about the sum. I have so bad opinion about the value of money nowadays."
"She gives four year old Noah a little bit of candy and says that she really only asks one thing:"
" I want to have an excuse for what they have done to me. But I have not received."
"Medicine against epelepsi. Belongs to a category of medicinal products called antieleptika and contains a substance that suppresses the hjärnimpulserna that triggers epeleptiska attack."
"Drugs for depression in the elderly. Restores the disrupted balance between the different neurotransmitters in the brain."
"Both of these drugs can lead to side effects in the form of the dementia-like state."
