Car Crash Injuries

Premise: Two friends (both male, mid-20's) are involved in a *serious* high-speed crash. The driver is only slightly less injured than the passenger but both arrive at the hospital unconscious, in critcal condition and are rushed into surgery.

Question: I want the passenger to end up w/vision & hearing loss (not sure just how bad yet) from the crash. What I need to know is just when the medical staff would notice a problem. I'm assuming that anything noticed at first would be written off as mostly due to the accident and surgery. Afterwards he is placed into a medically-induced coma and on a ventilator as well.

My main problem is that I can't quite determine the actual time frame. Any/all suggestions appreciated. Thanks in advance.
