hi all,

 

I hope this is the correcct place ....

 

a friend of mine's daughter died in hospital 3 years ago.

her records r lost, as far as the hospital is concerned.

this woman ( the mother) has and is tireless putting all the effort 2 prove that the doctors / nurses has by mistake given an over dose of medicine, that killed her.

she is on retired and lives on pension, therefore she can not afford 2 pay for a solicitor.

can any one help or point to a link where we could look at a medical test cases ?

this will help her 2 present the case in court with more legal technicality ???

infect any help is so much appreciated.

I would imagine your first port of call, would be to take a free half hour with a solicitor who specialises in medical negligance, although how you would proe anything if the records are missing I don't know.

 

I'm afaraid this is not my area of knowledge but I will move this post to the NHS forum where you hopefully will get some support.

 

I hope you get the advice you need - good luck.


Consumer Health Forums - where you can discuss any health or relationship matters.

Don't know much about this, sounds awful.

Found another thread on here with a posting that may be of help.

It's by battleaxe and could also possibly help in your situation, though my husband used to work for a hospital and tells me that it is very unusual for the notes to be lost since they are tracked using computers and it is more likly that someone has filed them in the wrong place rather than actually losing them.

 

Hope this helps.

Did your friend's daughter have a post mortem? And did the case go to the coroner? If so, they will have determined the cause of death, which will help.

 

I would advise your friend to get in touch with the Law Society, who have information about specialist solicitors, who will give her a free appointment, when they can find out the facts, and if she can proceed.

 

The coroner should have copies of the notes pertaining the the lady's death- worth a try.

 

I hope this helps.
