In brief: Depends on her/hosp
This depends on her deficits, the hospital that is caring for her, and if they are staffed with an experienced interventionalist , a neurosurgeon and a critical care unit experienced in aneurysm care.
These latter elements are critical in the ultimate outcome of aneurysm patients. If the hospital that is currently taking care of her doesn't have all of the above, demand transfer to one that does.
