Margaret was admitted mid-morning, by ambulance, with a suspected heart attack. A sister told us they were not happy with an ecg readout and were taking Margaret to the Heart unit. Subsequently we were told a stent needed to be fitted. We were delighted to find a dedicated team were on duty, in readiness for such an event. Two doctors, one early and one later, each told the family things were not going according to plan as Margaret had suffered a massive heart attack and they could not fit a stent. Apparently her main heart arteries were seriously inefficient. A consultant then told the family she was very seriously ill and Margaret died soon after 8.00pm. The team were super and we would to thank them for all their efforts and concerns.
