Baby Girl Turned Away From Hospital
Miss A lost her legs after her father was twice turned away from hospital. Miss A was eventually admitted to hospital on the third visit. By this time she was suffering from septicaemic shock and multiple organ failure, and it was too late for doctors to save her legs. Her left leg had to be removed above the knee, while her right leg was amputated below the knee.
The girl, now aged 9, successfully sued the hospital through her father and judgment has now been entered for damages to be assessed.
