Man fed up with hospitals alleged inadequate care

A man has instigated an investigation by the Healthcare Commission after claiming that the Queen Elizabeth Hospital offered both of his parents inadequate care and medication. The man alleges that his mother went to hospital for treatment for a chest infection but later developed a stomach infection caused by strong antibiotics. She then developed colon problems but died following emergency surgery. He claims that inadequate medication also contributed to her death. He also alleges that 18 months later, his father was then mistakenly told he was suffering from MRSA.
