"The discharge of my daughter"

About: Barnet General Hospital

(as a parent/guardian),

My daughter was discharged from Victoria Ward with a 5. 1 blood count, tachycardi and shortness of breath. She had told midwives that she had lost two blood clot - one the size of her head. They didn't even bother to take her blood pressure. Just was told to Save her pads, which the cleaner promptly put in the bin. When the midwives visited her at home the next day, they told her she was not far off a heart attack. She was blued and two-ed back to Barnet. She had six blood transfusions. Not once, in the whole time she was there was her temp, or her blood pressure taken from the birth to discharge.

No explanation was EVER given to her,
