Medical Negligence, Sepsis, and the Heart-breaking Journey of a Devoted Family
Discover the heartfelt journey of a distraught family as they fought tirelessly for justice on behalf of their late husband/father, Edward, who was tragically a victim of medical negligence.
Edward, battling a degenerative spinal disease and vascular dementia, underwent surgery, offering hope for pain relief and the chance of a better life. Unfortunately, the outcome of the surgery was not as they had hoped.
Following Edward's surgery, a two-week hospital stay was succeeded by a readmission due to severe pain. Complications emerged, revealing a spinal infection which led to sepsis. Despite two additional surgeries, Edward sadly did not recover and was paralysed from the waist down.
The toll wasn't just physical; Edward's family witnessed a distressing decline in his cognitive function, intensified by the stress of the surgeries which heightened his dementia. Returning home was no longer an option, and Edward was discharged to a nursing home.
As months passed, Edward's health continued its downward spiral, leading to another readmission to the hospital, where he sadly passed away, leaving his family heartbroken and devastated.
