806.. Old mother died from post-op infections in the ward

I read this somewhere in the Straits Times in Dec 2011.

The surgeon operated successfully on the heart of the old mother. She became infected in the ward and it seemed that the doctors had not attended to her. She died. Civil suit. The registrar resigned and the surgical intern gave up his surgical internship.

Post-op infections can be very serious in old people and dogs.
