Mother died of brain haemorrhage after being sent home from GP with headache pill
article in the Telegraph
"Lorraine King, 44, was told her head pain and drowsiness were the result of whiplash caused by a recent minor car accident.
She was given Nurofen and Co-codamol but rushed back to hospital four days later where an MRI scan revealed a haemorrhage on her brain.
Within 24 hours of the scan she had slipped into a coma and was declared brain dead the following day.
Miss King leaves daughter Hannah, 18, to raise her autistic brother Adam, 16, and her younger half-sister, Terri (corr), 14."
If you read all of the article you will see that there is a deplorable and repeated failure to take seriously Lorraine King's symptoms. What a terrible waste of a life.
"A post mortem examination at Hornsey Mortuary gave cause of death as a brain haemorrhage.
The family is now considering taking legal action against Barnet Hospital and against the London Ambulance Service.
A spokesman for Barnet and Chase Farm Hospitals NHS Trust refused to comment about the case on the grounds of patient confidentiality."
My translation of ' on the grounds of patient confidentiality' is 'on the grounds of cover-up of medical mistakes'. - Those poor children left motherless!
