Who should be blamed for the death of a critically ill teenager who lost her life in an ambulance only not because of her sufferings but also due to a big delay in receiving treatment for her wounds?
The case is of 19 years old Ms. Elaine Curley, a resident of Creggs, Co Roscommon. Reports are confirming that Ms. Curley was being transported by an ambulance to the hospital to treat her internal bleeding immediately but since the vehicle went the long way round to avoid too much movement in the back of the ambulance, Elaine lost her life.
The above confirmations are coming from HSE, who said in its report recently that Ms. Elaine Curley died in the ambulance almost 30 minutes before she was reached to Galway hospital.
The ambulance service initially transported Ms. Elaine to Portiuncla Hospital in Ballinasloe but the officials there diverted her to Galway Hospital. It took the ambulance more than two hours to reach the finally suggested hospital whereas if one takes a direct route from Creggs to Galway he can reach in only one hour and 20 minutes.
HSE is now defending the decision of route taken by officials saying: "The route taken was in part to allow the advanced paramedic and the paramedic to better manage the patient while working in the back of a moving ambulance”.
