robert's insight:

A young boy is blind, brain-damaged, doubly incontinent and requires 24-hour care after undergoing a procedure at a Cork hospital at the age of two, it has been claimed in the High Court.

It is claimed Darragh was admitted to the hospital on September 17th, 2000, and that, during his subsequent treatment, he came under the care of the defendants. He was admitted for a shunt revision, a shunt having been originally fitted on April 27th, 1998, just days after his birth, in relation to a malformation of his brain.

Medical negligence: Student Research Center - powered by EBSCOhost

robert's insight:

medical negligence. Sir, Healthcare would improve if the threat of litigation was removed (letters, Nov 15, 20 & 26). Doctors, nurses and health workers generally should be protected by Crown immunity unless they deliberately or maliciously harm patients. Practising "defensively" curbs treatment choice, creates staff stress, engenders mistrust with patients, deprives frontline care of funds, adds to bureaucracy by recording minutiae as well as adding to over-testing and over-prescribing — "to tick all the boxes".

robert's insight:

patient killed due to negligence by hospital.

A hospital being investigated in the wake of the Mid Staffordshire NHS scandal has admitted liability for the death of a woman who was given drugs that damaged her liver.

Linda Sears died in 2010 at the age of 62 after being treated at Colchester General Hospital for a misdiagnosed overactive thyroid.

She was treated continuously with propylthiouracil, a drug with a high risk of causing serious liver injury, and both she and her husband, Anthony, asked repeatedly whether it might be to blame for making her feel unwell. By the time she was seen by a doctor six days later, her liver had failed.
