Family launch medical negligence case for High Court
12 Oct 2015
The family of a Dublin woman have launched a High Court action alleging her death was the result of medical negligence. Susan McGee died on July 24, 2013 less than two weeks after having surgery to repair a hernia at the Hermitage Clinic in Dublin. The 52-year-old from Skerries Road in Rush had been admitted for the elective surgery on July 13 and discharged three days later. She became unwell overnight and was re-admitted to hospital the following day before her condition then deteriorated. She underwent surgery on July 22 and the next day the mother-of-two was transferred to Beaumont Hospital, where she died. Earlier this year, an inquest returned a verdict of medical misadventure in her case. According to BreakingNews.ie a summons has now been issued and served on the Hermitage Clinic.
