Young Mother dies from Hospital Acquired Infection

A 30 yr old mother of 2 children was given anti-emetic(nausea) medication by IV catheter to combat nausea. She was 6 weeks pregnant with her 3rd child. When she developed cold symptoms (coughing, headache, fever) hospital physicians didn't check her for blood borne infection(sepsis). When her husband brought her back to the emrgency room she was admitted to ICU and died 2 days later. Suit against the hospital was successfully settled at mediation.
