Our client, Mr H, suffered a stroke after the Stroke Prevention Unit at Darent Valley Hospital failed to refer him for carotid ultrasound scan.
Our client, Mrs K, required multiple surgeries after suffering post-operative anastomotic leaks and a ureteric injury during surgery for bowel obstruction. Unfortunately, Mrs K then suffered a head injury and stroke when she tripped over a raised area in the hospital corridor. At that time it was also found that a JJ stent had been left in place for 9 months after her previous surgery, causing urosepsis and other urological problems.
Our client, Mrs F, suffered a peri-prosthetic fracture to her hip after falling in hospital when nursing staff left her alone in the bathroom for 40 minutes.
Our client, Mrs P, suffered a heart attack and cardiac arrest after her GP failed to refer her to A&E when she attended with chest pains.
Our client, Mr A, sustained a fracture to his femur requiring surgery and a post-operative hernia which also required surgery following a fall from his hospital bed. He had a history of falling and worsening cognitive impairment, but despite this nursing staff failed to ensure his safety and a faulty bedrail was used.
