Good evening, I am writing on behalf of my partner. Last year, in September, she went into surgery to remove an abscess under her left arm. The medical team were saying the infection should go away after a couple of weeks but didn't. The surgery was unsuccessful as the infection and abscess kept coming back, she went under a second time, and it was still unsuccessful. After the third surgery the problem was finally resolved. She underwent 2 surgeries at the QEII Jubilee Hospital before the GP sent her away to the Princess Alexandra Hospital (PA) for her third surgery. Several months later, the QEII Jubilee Hospital called her and they acknowledged the mistake they made (ultrasound results showed a piece of material still in her arm after surgery, not sure whether this was packing done by the nursing team or surgical team). Either way, the QEII Jubilee Hospital acknowledged the error and they want to organise a meeting with her. The director of the QEII Jubilee Hospital and someone from the ethics and finance department will also be there. We are curious as to what goes on in these types of meetings? Are they going to make her sign some documents? Are they going to compensate with money? Should we bring a lawyer or legal aid with us? Don't really know what to expect, any help is appreciated.
