西薩福克醫院被簡-溫的家人起訴

一名因缺乏救命藥物而心臟驟停的婦女的家人正在起訴她死亡的醫院。

61歲的凱倫-簡-溫(Karen Jane Winn)來自諾福克郡塞特福德(Thetford)附近的諾斯伍德(Northwold),2019年4月被診斷出患有嚴重的血液疾病。三天後她就去世了。

溫太太被稱為簡,在抱怨 "非常不舒服 "後,於4月12日在全科醫生的建議下被送入醫院。

2020年10月舉行的審訊聽到她應該在4月12日血液測試結果出來後立即接受藥物治療以預防血栓。

直到溫女士去世前一小時才開始用藥,當時她接受的單劑量藥物不足以分解任何已經形成的血塊。

報告還告訴我們,嵌入在她的電子病例記錄中的對有血栓風險的病人的自動警告系統被手動推翻了58次。

屍檢證實,她的肺部動脈廣泛堵塞,上肢靜脈有 "明顯的 "血凝塊。

"他補充說:"這種藥物早先被確認為是治療她的必需品,不使用這種必需品構成了忽視。

在通過其律師發布的一份聲明中,溫先生說,"很明顯",他的妻子需要被送入重症監護室,在那裡更頻繁的監測 "無疑會呈現出不同的結果"。

"未能提供基本水平的護理,帶走了我兒子的母親和我一起生活了近50年的最好的朋友"。


The family of a woman who had a cardiac arrest following a lack of life-saving medication is suing the hospital where she died.

Karen Jane Winn, 61, of Northwold, near Thetford, Norfolk, was diagnosed with a serious blood disorder in April 2019. She died three days later.

Mrs Winn, who was known as Jane, was admitted to the hospital on 12 April on the advice of her GP after complaining of being "very unwell".

An inquest held in October 2020 heard she should have been placed on medication to prevent blood clots as soon as blood test results were available on 12 April.

It was not administered until an hour before Mrs Winn died, when she received a single dose which was not sufficient to break up any blood clots that had already formed.

It was also told an automated warning system for patients at risk of blood clots, which was embedded in her electronic case record, was manually overridden 58 times.

A post-mortem examination confirmed widespread blockages in the arteries in her lungs, and "significant" blood clots in the veins in her upper legs.

"This medication had been earlier identified as being essential for her treatment and the non-administration of this essential medication amounts to neglect," he added.

In a statement released via his solicitor, Mr Winn said it was "obvious" that his wife needed to be admitted to ICU, where more frequent monitoring "would no doubt have presented a different outcome".

"The failure to provide a basic level of care, took away my sons' mother, and my best friend of almost 50 years together."
