Medical malpractice led to death of nurse in childbirth
A woman died in childbirth at the hospital where she worked as a nurse after
a series of medical malpractice
errors resulted in her losing a fatal amount of blood, according to a report in
the Independent in the United Kingdom on May 31, 2008.
The woman reportedly hemorrhaged due to poor obstetric care and surgery, which did not correct the problem.
According to the Independent, she bled to death after her baby was delivered by Caesarean section.
The report said the nurse was the tenth woman to die while giving birth in three years at the hospital. This subsequently triggered an investigation.
