A medical mistake that ended up killing a woman could not be realized in time. And, as per a recent report, another blunder was there that the government of the state was not informed about the same.
The report says that the woman had been administered with high doses of paracetamol in 2009. Before the same, she had undergone a knee operation, but her death was found to be a clear result of a medical malpractice.
HQCC or the Health Quality Complaints Commission had conducted an investigation into her death on a request by the state coroner. Health Minister Lawrence Springborg said he had not been informed about the case in detail.
The Australian Health Practitioners Regulation Agency (APHRA) is carrying out the inquest into the matter. The aim is to find a link between the two separate medical charts realized in the deceased patient's case.
But, Mr. Springborg says a shield of secret aspects by the two agencies calls for a change in the federal laws governing these two. "With or without cooperation, there will be changes. The public deserves answers about whether or not clinicians involved will be subject to disciplinary action", sources quoted Mr. Springborg as saying.
