My mum was taken to hospital with breathing problems, dehydrated, she was over 65. The Lister did a blood test called a d dimer test which came back positive and high. I know d dimer tests are related to infections and pregnancy but the main one is blood clot.
I am disgusted with Lister hospital when every website states if the d dimer tests come back high further tests should be followed up. But Lister sent my mum home as she appeared better but clearly wasn't and my mum passed away the day after being discharged.
In my view, Lister are negligent here i feel and I strongly believe if Lister had done there job properly my mum would still be with us today.
This has caused myself and family undue stress and I am unable to work due to the stress and sadness this has caused.
I've spoken to the Dr concerned who commented to me to let this be a learning curve. I was disgusted at that comment. The Dr also admitted further tests should have been done and they were wrong.
I'm expecting a letter from the Dr concerned to see what is said before I put in a complaint and seek a negligence solicitor.
