Hi, the following is written by a friend of mine.
I am posting it for him but am not in the position
tany questions to him
d ********** *********************
Our daughter was admitted to a local hospital after suffering
an apparent seizure. She had no history of seizures and tests
showed no traces of drugs. She was crying and incoherent and
would not or could not respond to questions. The attending
physicians could not determine what caused this and after seven
dted that our daughter be moved to a larger
hospital but the attending physician resisted. He said that there
was no infection and they intended to do an M.R.I. in a couple of days.
On her eighth day in the hospital, the doctor ordered that
a feeding tube be inserted. Our daughter pulled the tube out
so they tied her arms back. Later that evening she passed away.
She had stopped breathing and no one saw this until it was too late.
What makes this so absurd is that the hospital had assigned personnel
to be with her 24 hours a day.
The autopsy showed that she had died from lack of oxygen.
Of course, the doctors will accept no blame and it has never been
determined why she stopped breathing. This has haunted us and we're
doing anything we can to find out why a healthy, 24 year old person
would suddenly stop breathing for no apparent reason. Please respond
if you have any information concerning similar cases.
