"Still birth"

About: University College Hospital Elizabeth Garrett Anderson Wing / Maternity

(as a relative),

Niece admitted to UCHL when her waters broke. Was kept in two days and then sent home. Ten days later felt baby moving about and went to the hospital two hours later only to be told that sadly the baby was dead. Baby delivered by C Section and was a beautiful little baby. When asked why the baby had died they told us that it was due to kidney failure as she did not have enough water. So why oh why did they send her home when her waters broke? We think the baby should have been delivered and put into an incubator. She was four weeks away from being full term.

Baby buried beside husband's first wife and baby who died at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital due to acute septic even although she had green discharge and did not see a consultant for three days. It was the weekend and junior doctors were getting guidance BY TELEPHONE from their superiors. Yet another case of hospital error. When are these people going to be held accountable for their errors?
