A woman suffering from pneumonia contracted MRSA ("golden staph") a now relatively common hospital bug, while she was being treated in hospital, which resulted in a 4 month long coma and predicted 10% survival rate. She now suffers from arthritis, osteoporosis and chronic shortness of breath 5 years after her ordeal, with many scars outlining the numerous operations she has undergone to rid her body of the disease. She is suing the NHS trust for her loss of employment, marriage and ongoing medical complications.
