Failure to identify bleeding following heart surgery


Our client underwent heart surgery after which he was found to be suffering inadequate blood circulation. The hospital failed initially to consider that this might be caused by internal bleeding and it was several hours before this was identified.

The delay led to severe permanent brain damage and our client was left unable to care for himself and suffering significant cognitive and behavioural defects.
