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!
