My sister was in wards 45 -47. She was operated on last month having skin cancer removed from her foot then a skin graft. During the night after the op she experienced excessive bleeding and the wound was exposed. I believe (as she kept insisting) that there was an infection there before the op. Then of course another infection occurred after bleeding episode.
She was sent home later and came to recuperate with me. She never got better and eventually she was readmitted to Monklands a few days later, who explained all this, saying she had a form of MRSA.
I also don't think they got treatment correct and she passed away this month. Throughout this time we were assured by "stand in doctors" because of "holidays" that she was doing ok.
So why was she allowed to die far too soon?
